Thanks to the generous support our donors have contributed through the EXCEL Imagine. Tomorrow. Capital Campaign of South Baldwin Christian Academy (SBCA), all of the school’s middle and high school classrooms now feature smart board technology. SMART boards are interactive, touch-screen white boards that offer opportunities for teachers to turn a typical classroom into a fun, engaging learning environment. The projector and SMART board are connected to a computer. Through the projector, an image of the computer screen is displayed on the SMART board.
SBCA teacher Jenny Erikson has been using a SMART board in her 5th grade classroom since the beginning of the school year and reports higher student engagement levels as one of the primary benefits of incorporating this technology. “Because of the SMART boards we now have access to thanks to the EXCEL Campaign, we can feature course content in a way that students really connect with. Students enjoy the games that can be played to reinforce curriculum and are having fun learning without even realizing it!”
Fifth grade student Kylee Griffin shares her appreciation for the SMART boards is the above video testimonial. She shares how, as a visual learner, this technology is able to accommodate her learning style in a way that she enjoys and benefits from. Watch now to hear more about how SMART boards are impacting learning at SBCA.
Thank you to all of the EXCEL Capital Campaign donors who helped make this new valuable new learning tool available for SBCA students! You are making a difference to Kylee and other students like her.
