Designed to enhance the learning of students in regions challenged to provide a quality ICT-enabled education, the SMART Board V280 interactive whiteboard aims to accelerate adoption of 21st-century education technology in countries with significant budget constraints.
The V280 extends SMART's commitment to ensuring children around the world are able to develop the skills needed to fully participate in a global economy.
Like all SMART Board interactive whiteboards, the V280 is a whole-class teaching and learning tool that allows educators and students to access and control any computer or multimedia application, including the Internet. They can also write notes in digital ink and save their work to share later.
The V280 features a hard, laminated 77″ (195.6 cm) surface large enough for classrooms with many students and ideal for whole-class interaction.
Users write on and control the V280 with an ergonomic pen that has a natural grip for effortless writing. The V280 also comes with award-winning Notebook collaborative learning software, which is setting the global standard for creating, delivering and managing interactive lessons within a single application. With the V280 and Notebook software, fewer steps are required to perform tasks, making the V280 easier to use than other pen-driven interactive whiteboard brands. Notebook software supports 41 languages, including Arabic.
“Technology can help close the digital divide by providing access to a 21st-century education,” says Nancy Knowlton, SMART's CEO. “The SMART Board V280 interactive whiteboard offers a viable option for areas of the world that want the benefits of SMART's award-winning products at a more affordable cost.”
