We are highlighting science in this issue and we’ve selected a few research studies that report the benefits of SMART products in science classrooms, grant programs that can assist you in purchasing the right technology products for your school and some other great resources available to you. We hope they provide you with ideas and inspiration for your science classroom.
SMART Board Interactive Whiteboard Utilization in Al-Shifaa Bint Ouf School
In a study released by the Jordan Education Initiative in March 2010, students from the Al-Shifaa Bint Ouf Secondary School for Girls, located in an underprivileged and overpopulated neighborhood in Amman, Jordan, report that they feel more engaged and motivated when learning math and science with the school’s two SMART Board interactive whiteboards.
Elementary Science Lab Outreach Efforts: Extending Science Lessons to Support Improvements in Students’ Study Skills and Math Performance in Grades 4, 5 and 6
This project by Kathie Heirigs and Halima Thurmon at St. Joseph Catholic School in Memphis, Tennessee, sought to determine the most effective study methods for improving critical math skills for inner-city students. To determine final outcomes, standardized test scores from fall 2007 and spring 2008 were compared using the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS). Various specific and related skills sections of the ITBS data were examined and significant improvements were noted. In many cases, individual students who were performing below both grade level and the national average showed such significant gains that the project was considered successful in helping to close the gap for targeted skills with these inner-city students.
Report on the Use of the SMART Board Interactive Whiteboard in Physical Science
This project by Dr. Deborah Damcot, Janet Landato and Collette Marsh at William Rainey Harper College in Chicago, Illinois, in 2000, measured the effectiveness of using a SMART Board interactive whiteboard in physical science topics that require visualization of complex phenomena. Among their findings, students self-reported that lectures featuring the SMART Board interactive whiteboard were more interesting and that the use of color helped better understand science concepts.
