Welcome to ModernChalkboard.com!
Technology is changing the way we teach. Dusty, old classroom chalkboards are being replaced with modern, interactive SMART Boards. This is good news for students. Learning has now become an interactive process, where technology acts as a tool for exploratory learning.
Interactive whiteboards allow students to learn by touching, tapping, dragging, drawing, clicking, watching, and listening. Teachers with SMART Boards in their classroom say it's rapidly changing the way we teach and enriching students' learning experiences.
This site was created for elementary school teachers who want to integrate the SMART Board into their regular, classroom instruction. Interactive whiteboards are not a gimmick or trend that will fade from education, but rather powerful tools that can make your lessons more exciting, informative, creative, and enriching.
All SMART Boards come with Notebook software - a powerful package that allows teachers to create their own lessons. However, if you're like most teachers, you don't have the time to create a new interactive whiteboard file for each lesson you plan to teach. That's where we come in! ModernChalkboard.com has files that cover all areas of your curriculum, including math, grammar, ELA, science, and social studies.
We're hoping to fill this site with hundreds (and eventually thousands) of interactive whiteboard lessons. Each one will have features that allow students to interact with the board.
The lessons on this website are easy to use- just download the file, turn on your SMART Board, and begin teaching.
ModernChalkboard.com was created by the folks at SuperTeacherWorksheets.com. Since 2007, we've specialized in creating printable resources for elementary teachers. Super Teacher Worksheets has grown into one of the largest and most popular worksheet sites on the internet.
While we're still growing and improving S.T.W., we're also expanding our selection of teacher resources. We've purchased a SMART Board and learned how to develop professional-quality interactive whiteboard files. Now we're pleased to launch ModernChalkboard.com, our new site for interactive whiteboard lessons.
While we believe paper-and-pencil activities will remain a staple in elementary school classrooms, we also realize that technology is now mainstream and it plays an important role in the learning process. That's why we decided to create this site, ModernChalkboard.com.
