Smartboards: not so smart?

This is a PDF copy of a research paper I wrote for a graduate program - I reviewed some literature and asked “are smartboards effective vs traditional teaching” The answer? Not really. Of course, it’s deeper and more complicated than that, but I couldn’t find any empirical evidence smartboards made a difference in learning. Smartboards do make a tremendous difference in teaching and student motivation, but that does not lead automatically to better student achievement.
