12:00-1:00 SMART Senteo Interactive Response System
Rachel Jeantry, SMART Technologies, and John Kozlowski, SMART Technologies
Grades: All This session focuses on how the Senteo interactive response system is designed to enhance interactive teaching and learning. With it, you display or speak prepared or ad hoc questions, students anonymously key in answers with their remote, and responses are tallied, then displayed on a projection screen or interactive whiteboard. Tallying and displaying results occurs immediately. To assess student understanding, you can use a variety of question types, including true or false, multiple choice, numeric response and more-than-one-right-answer. Decimals, fractions and negative numbers can also be incorporated into questions and answers. This session will be led Rachel Jeanty, SMART Technologies Education Consultant for The Northeast and John Kozlowsky, the Northeastern US Area Manager for SMART Technologies.
