Transitioning to SMART Notebook as the platform for developing, managing, and enhancing your lessons has numerous benefits for students and teachers. By having the lessons already created in textbook quality, teachers can achieve up to a 30% improvement in efficiency. However, there is a potential downside to this. When lessons are prepared ahead of time, the speed of the lesson is no longer constrained. But how do you maintain the students’ focus? The answer is Reveals. The author will demonstrate the effective use of various types of Reveals in a number of Calculus lessons used in his school. How these devices can be integrated in a teacher’s lessons will also be described, along with easy instructional steps.
