Please browse through the events we are organising and if there is a twilight or session that captures you interest then please let your line manager know and register online.
Almost every classroom in Aberdeenshire is equipped with a SMARTboard
The software that works with the SMARTboard is always being upgraded, and the Learning through Technology team regularly run training sessions for any teacher to bring their SMART skills up to date.
Our lead trainer and SMART EXEMPLARY EDUCATOR is Susan, and earlier this year she submitted a short video to SMART In Canada to see if her work would qualify to be awarded a place at an international conference.
During the school holidays Susan travelled to Calgary in Canada to meet 77 other educators from 22 countries for a fantastic week of keynote presentations, hackathons, networking all crammed into days that started at 6am and finished not before 7pm
Susan said the highlight for her was participating in the Hackathon and seeing the passion and determination the developers at SMART have to provide their customers with the very best end product.
The video made by Susan can be found here and gives a tiny flavour of the trip.
We support schools in various ways with SMART training, your first port of call should be Aberdeenshire events to see if there is a training event near your school. Or call Susan at the Learning Through Technology team to discuss your specific requirements.
