I am pleasantly surprise by how much I have enjoyed working on this project so far. I was at first overwhelmed by the sheer amount of options and activities to incorporate, but as I have spent time exploring and creating a lesson, I really feel that using Smart technology in the classroom provides amazing opportunities for children to learn. There are activites friendly for all ages and subject areas. Working with geography at an elementary age has been fun--I'm designing a lesson that identifies continents and oceans, as well as going over basic climates/biomes. We are learning basic facts about deserts, forests, wetlands, and mountains, all of which can also be found in the U.S. This project is a great learning opportunity for me.
