Re:Smart Board as center

I am a mentee, but last year I had a SB in my classroom for a few months. I used it daily as a center for literacy, writing, and sometimes math and science. It is a wonderful tool and allows the students more opportunities to become proficient using the technology and to work together to solve problems as they arise. I would definitely recommend trying the Smart Board out as a center.

I've seen Kathy use the SmartBoard in this way and it works great. Now the fifth graders coming up from her class last year are proficient in using the technology, which saves me tons of time not needing to reteach it. If you have time, Kathy, maybe you could post a couple examples of how you use it in centers?
