ICT – Information and Computer Technology
As the computer and Internet related technology dominate our lives in the 21st century we believe it is vital for children to accept the computer as a natural part of everyday life. Using age appropriate software, our aim is to familiarise children with basic use of the computer. Carefully selected software provides the opportunities for them to improve their language skills as well as learn things such as shapes, numbers, colours etc.
We launched the new SMART Board 600 interactive whiteboard at Happy Kids. With this new digital equipment, we can create an exciting learning environment that excites children of all ages, making learning a dynamic experience.
At Happy Kids, children have the opportunity to use the SMART interactive whiteboard on a daily basis.
The interactive whiteboard combines the power of a computer and the simplicity of a whiteboard. The key to the SMART Board interactive whiteboard is touch: applications can be controlled by touching or writing on the interactive whiteboard. The touch recognition feature can recognize the difference between a pen and a finger and chooses the right mode to use, thus making it possible to write with a pen, erase with palms and move objects with a finger without having to press any buttons.
With the SMART Board interactive whiteboard comes the award winning SMART Notebook collaborative learning software. The intuitive features wrapped in a simple interface let teachers build interactive lesson activities easily. The software captivates students by pulling together images, multimedia and Internet links, either from its own gallery containing more than 6700 elements or from an external drive. Because it can interact with a variety of multimedia content and file types, the SMART Board intuitive whiteboard can help improve student motivation and performance by making learning a dynamic classroom experience.
SMART Board is truly a revolutionary teaching tool in the classroom!
