From Blackboards to Smart Boards: Using Technology in Classrooms

Teachers are learning how to teach math, but this time with digital chalkboards and tablet computers.  Incorporating new technology in classrooms is part of the curriculum in the professional development classes that the Clark County School District offered this summer.  The classes are designed to help teachers engage students by using the latest technological trends and new teaching methods.  Although teachers say they understand the importance of students interacting with technology, the benefits are still unclear.
