I hope Skip Zalneraitis, who writes the itlc blog, does not mind me reposting his SMARTboard, IWB Resources entry here. These are some great resources for our teachers that are going to be using interactive SMARTboards for the first time this year. All of these links look very useful! THANK YOU Mr. Zalneraitis!

Teachers Love SMART Boards – James Hollis is SMARTboard sales and supportperson from Illinois, who I came across on Twitter. Jim corrects me below – “I appreciate that you listed my Teachers Love SMART Board blog and I just thought I would mention that I’m not associated with Smart Technologies in any way. I’m just a teacher and technology trainer trying to help teachers use SMART Boards more effectively.”
