Smartboard Love

Doug Johnson, a district technology director, posts the highly positive results of a survey of teachers in his district on their use of smartboards. While acknowledging recent criticism of the devices, he notes:

"When it comes to the classroom, I will listen to the teacher long before listening to the pundit."

Generally a good policy, but it's worth noting that (beyond Johnson's district) teachers' opinions on smartboards are nowhere near uniform. Which raises the question of how much teachers' experiences with them are determined by the strengh of the district's implementation.
