Agriculture Science Goes Interactive: Byron Ernest

Byron Ernest - SMART Best in TechReviewer: Byron L. Ernest

Position: Department Head Agriculture Science

District/School: Lebanon Community School Corporation, Lebanon High School, IN

Number of Students in District/School: 3,551/1,046

Products: SMART Boards 685 ix/600 UF 65, SMART Response Systems, SMART Notebook software

Goals:

We are designing and developing a learning environment that integrates various technology tools such as interactive white boards, mobile technology, high access technology (laptops) and the applications to Smtfully integrate all technology through the SMART system, enabling highly effective teachers to facilitate high student achievement.

Response:

Everyone is on board with our strategic tech plan. Students have done presentations using the technology for our school board, parents, and community. Students love coming to class and immersing themselves in the educational process through collaborative learning and use of technology.

Learning Curve:

First-round teachers provide support and training, and share lessons. The SWELL Classroom allows for designing each lesson to meet individual student needs. Teacher leaders provide coaching, and we include specially developed administrator training. SMART has tailored specific workshops, too.

How We Use It:

Our interactive agriculture science classroom is equipped with SMART Board technology. In Advanced Life Science students are asked to produce presentations using SMART Notebook and the SMART Boards related to various topics and upload those presentations to group wikis. After review SMART Response systems are used to gage student knowledge.

What’s Ahead?:

Our school is undergoing a renovation that will equip all classrooms like the SWELL Classroom. Additionally, we will have a 24/7 one-to-one computing environment with our students in grades 6-12.
