SMART Board Workshop Coming to Chickasha

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

 

Area teachers will have an opportunity to learn new SMART Board techniques during a free workshop at the University of Science and Arts Sept. 25.

 

UPDATE: Registration in the workshop is closed. All the open spaces are filled.

 

SMART Board in the Music Classroom is open to area teachers, as well as USAO students. Registration begins at 8:30 in Davis Hall Lobby. (See campus map.) Session continues to noon in Davis Hall 226. Space is limited. To register for the workshop, e-mail Jan Hanson by Sept. 20. Participants should bring a flash drive to save lesson ideas, games and activities.

 

Angela Stewart, a 1996 USAO music education graduate, will teach the workshop. She is a music specialist at Broadmoore Elementary School in Moore.

 

"With 14 years of classroom experience and five years of SMART Board training experience, Angela is able to present a wealth of techniques and strategies for developing and incorporating an excellent SMART Board learning environment for young learners," said Dr. Jan Hanson, professor of music at USAO.

 

"Angela learned 'in the trenches' how important music is to young children's development. In addition to teaching school, she also taught music lessons to children, ages four to 18, in her home studio and MIDI keyboard classroom."

 

Stewart has five years of SMART Board teaching experience with extensive knowledge in creating SMART Board lessons and implementing them smoothly into the classroom.

 

"Her high content, high quality, high energy programs are well researched and delivered in a down to earth, memorable style. She leads her audience to greater success with her indomitable will to make a difference to both the individuals and organizations she serves," Hanson said.

 

Along with her love of children and music, Stewart said that her interests include developing SMART Board curriculum and programs for various school districts and private organizations. Her passion for her work with children, teachers and SMART Board supports her goal of sharing research-based, cutting edge information with teachers, while at the same time honoring them for what they do and who they are.
