SMART does it again! LightRaise interactive projector beats them all
By Renee Fruge
Howdy from TCEA 2012. My brain is full after another exciting day!
As a SMART Exemplary Educator, I had the opportunity to attend a SMART Vision Presentation and see SMART’s new LightRaise 40wi Interactive Projector! I always say that SMART never ceases to amaze me and that is definitely true again today. Especially after I had hands-on time using the new Interactive Projector.
My first thought was….. I know just the place I could put this in my classroom! It is one of those technology tools that could have unlimited uses for any teacher.
- It would make a great place for my ESL student to work with his teacher while I am doing small group instruction with another group.
- It would be a great place for my students to make presentations to their peers during collaborative projects as
well as having another Math or ELA station for my students to work in groups.
- I have a student teacher this semester and it would be so valuable for her to have a station to work with a group of kids while learning to incorporate technology into her lessons. Now that would be great On-the-Job training!
- I even thought of how cool it would be to have students teaching their parents to use the Interactive Projector during Parent Night!
My mind is racing so fast, I don’t think I will sleep tonight! I hope you take my advice and go to SMART’s website at and find out more about the LightRaise Interactive Projector. It is definitely the HOT item this year and it is the next SMART product I want in my classroom!
Until next time……
