It's hard to believe, but I just received my official SMART Board Revolution members' email from Matt & Obe, celebrating FOUR years of their awesome website!!
For those of you not familiar with this site, I strongly recommend checking it out. It's a user-based Ning network, where the main goal is for SMART Board users from around the world to connect, share, discuss and help each other out with all things SMART.
Interact and contribute as much or as little as is best for your situation. The only requirement is that you officially sign up to become a member, and then the rest is up to you! Join groups with others that have common experiences, such as a geographical location, a specific SMART product, such as SMART Response or SMART Table, or similar professional specialty, such as grade level or subject area.
Head on over to the Forums section to get answers to common problems, share lesson ideas, learn tips and tricks and find upcoming training opportunities. If you really want to fully immerse yourself in the user experience, jump onto the blog bandwagon and start your own blog hosted by the SB Revolution, check out the chat feature for real-time discussions or maybe create a video to share with other members.
One of the best, albeit often overlooked, features of the site? The customized Google search engines found halfway down on the left-hand side of the page:
Use them to find other sites and activities devoted to SMART product use, including lesson plans, discussions and tips.
Happy Birthday, SMART Board Revolution!!
