The ways in which SMART Boards can assist students with dyslexia
Dyslexia is a a type of learning disability that can make it hard for students to read, spell and process numbers properly. The SMART Board interactive whiteboard and its associated software programs can assist students with dyslexia and make it easier for them to perform these tasks. There are several ways in which a SMART Board can help dyslexic students to learn:
•By adding colorful text, video clips, animation and images into SMART Notebook lessons, teachers can supplement their oral instructions which can make it easier for dyslexic students to grasp key concepts.
•Teachers can incorporate interactive phonics activities on the SMART Board interactive whiteboard into their lessons to help students build awareness of the letter sounds in words.
•Teachers can use SMART Response systems with their SMART Board interactive whiteboard to give tests and quizzes and keep track of how well students are learning. Points that have not been understood properly can easily be identified and revisited.
•Classroom audio systems such as the SMART Audio system when used along side a SMART interactive whiteboard can help students hear the teacher’s voice better.
•Teachers can record processes on their SMART Board and then play them back to the class step by step, as many times as necessary.
•The SMART Notebook “Spotlight” feature allows teachers to block off certain areas of text on the SMART Board which they might not want students to see just yet. This blocked off area can then be revealed as soon as students have processed the necessary information.
