Focus On: Smartboard Technology Continues Helping Students

  • Use of Smartboards At PRDS  

    Back to School

    Innovations in technology have given the special education world many more tools to work with, and the interactive Smartboards continues to have a positive impact on PRDS students. 
    Smartboards help build interactive lessons necessary to address visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning styles. The interaction helps PRDS students build confidence, complete a project successfully, and feel a sense of independence.
    PRDS students love interacting with smartboards, whether it be writing on them, watching their teacher use them, interacting with them by moving objects or clicking on interactive links.  The technology helps raise the interest level for students, and provides a vehicle for our talented staff to unleash their creativity.
