SMART Technologies has developed a connected classroom suite incorporating displays and software that aim to improve both learning experience and educational outcomes through a choice of technology options.
Two new panel series feature SMART's proprietary iQ technology that integrates software, content and student contributions from devices on its SMART Board® interactive displays. Teachers can also now move from room to room without being tied to a single computer or display.
At the ISTE Conference in San Antonio, SMART will demonstrate SMART Learning Suite Software and SMART Notebook Player working with three series of SMART Boards.
SMART Learning Suite Software
All SMART educational displays include a one-year subscription to SMART Learning Suite software that combines lesson delivery, assessment, student collaboration and game-based learning software. Visitors to ISTE will be able to see a beta of SMART Learning Suite Online, a new web-based classroom tool that supports active student participation on devices, offers fun and effective ways to gauge student understanding, and will soon enable distribution of lesson material (including game-based activities and formative assessments).
SMART Notebook Player
The SMART Notebook Player is a simplified platform that allows teachers to lead interactive lessons on mobile devices and SMART Board interactive displays with iQ.
SMART Board 7000 series interactive display with iQ
The SMART Board 7000 series interactive display with exclusive iQ technology offers collaborative features and ease of use.
The intuitive display enables four users to write simultaneously in the pen color of their choice (Pen ID™). The interactive display can distinguish between different commands, allowing multiple students to simultaneously and independently write with the pens, select content with their fingers and use their palms to erase (Object Awareness™). These features combined enable Simultaneous Tool Differentiation, which allows multiple students to write, select and erase simultaneously and independently - no other education panel can match this unparalleled multi-user collaborative experience. It supports up to 16 simultaneous touch, writing and erase points. Other features include a magnetic pen tray, multi-port Convenience Panel, dual presence detection sensors, on-screen video preview and source switching, 4K Ultra HD resolution and video, and ENERGY STAR® compliance. SMART offers a three-year warranty (may be higher depending on region) and one-year subscription to SMART Learning Suite software. The displays are available in 75" and 86" panel sizes.
SMART Board 6000 series interactive display with iQ
The new SMART Board 6000 series interactive display now comes with the iQ experience as a standard feature. It also shares exclusive features with the 7000 series, including Simultaneous Tool Differentiation, Object AwarenessTM, Pen IDTM (supports two users writing simultaneously in the pen color of their choice), SilktouchTM, 4K Ultra HD resolution and ENERGY STAR® compliance. It also includes a three-year warranty (may be higher depending on region) and one-year subscription to SMART Learning Suite software. The displays are available in 65" and 75" panel sizes.
SMART Board 2000 series display
The SMART Board 2000 series is a new non-touch 4K Ultra HD display with built-in screen sharing capability for students and teachers to present lesson content from their laptops, tablets or any other mobile device. It broadly supports iOS, Android and Microsoft devices and virtually no IT support required - no need for additional hardware, wiring, or apps to install on devices. It is a flexible solution to implement in any learning environment and promotes greater levels of student engagement. A three-year global warranty and one-year subscription to SMART Learning Suite software are standard. The display is available in a 75" panel.
