Originally introduced in 1991, SMART Boards are interactive whiteboards with touch-screen capabilities. Namely, teachers are able to scroll, click and write on the boards using digital ink. Educators typically use SMART Boards in conjunction with SMART Notebook software, a personal computer, and a projector to display the image to the classroom. For teachers wanting to use their Apple iPad in conjunction with the SMART Board technology...you might have guessed it --- there's an app for that.
