Interactive smart technology is being used in classrooms all over the world. Whether it is a math class for third graders or a college level Spanish class, the interactive SMARTboards are helping students learn and grow at accelerated rates. While almost every classroom has the use of a SMARTboard the class that gets the most benefit out of it is a class that teaches a foreign language.
Learning a foreign language can be difficult but with the help of a SMARTboard students are able to learn and understand concepts in a group setting. Here’s a look at exactly how SMARTboards help students learn a foreign language.
Better Student-Teacher Interaction
SMARTboards allow teachers to write notes and other classroom materials on the board with the use of a wireless keyboard. This allows teachers to roam around the classroom and take a more hands-on approach because they are not restricted to only teaching in the front of the class. This hands-on approach is important in foreign language courses because it allows teachers to correct pronunciation and help students out.
A SMARTboard can also be used to show students various reference materials. In a foreign language classroom this is helpful because students are able to see examples of the language they are learning in action. Newspaper clips, TV news clips and movies can all be played on the screen and students can see the language they are learning in action.
SMARTboards can help students all over the world take a more hands-on approach to learning any foreign language.
