**How to use:**

1. Smartboard
can be used as whiteboard or blackboard, but what teachers write on this board
can be saved in the computer. Thus teachers can save what they write (note of
this lesson) in class and post this note to their blogs and students can
download or review these notes. In this way, students do not need to make any
notes in class. They can only concentrate on what teacher is talking about.

2. Smartboard
can provide teachers to make some tasks with clues. Teachers can use these
tasks to motivate students to learn new words. Teachers can provide the Chinese
meaning of the new words for Chinese students, and let students write down the
word, and check whether they write the right words or not.

3. Teachers
also can find many funny pictures in smartboard. Some pictures can be used to
teach children English, but some pictures can be used for students to make a
presentation.

4. Smartboard
provides a pen, called ‘magic pen’. If teachers draw a square, the part in this
square will be magnified. If teachers draw a circle, the part out of this
circle will be dark, and the part in this circle will be stressed.

**Advantages:**

1. It can
save the pages that teachers used in class. In this way, students can review
the notes anytime. It will save students’ time to make notes in class, and they
do not need to focus on the notes rather than the teachers’ explanations.

2. Teachers
can use this to motivate students to make presentations in public. Since this
system only can be used by one person every time. Thus teachers can ask student
to prepare a presentation before class and show their presentation in the
entire class.

**Disadvantages:**

1. I admit
that sometimes this system is good, but this system makes some simple questions
into complex. For example, this system provides teachers to make their own
task, such as making sentence with disordered words. While most teachers refer
to give students some papers with different words and let them make these words
into a sentence.

2. This system
can be used by one person every time. Thus teachers cannot let students to work
in pairs or work in groups. Or this system only be used by teacher, it will be
same with a projector.
