How I Use It
I use this when I am doing lessons on the SmartBoard in my room. Having many students that have attention issues, and have differing needs, this allows me to be close in proximity and have a presence in the room. I often walk around the room changing my position due to many factors. This allows me to keep the lesson going while addressing anything that comes up. I enjoy circulating and giving specific feedback to individual students while a lesson is going on, especially a math lesson.
My Take
This product is great to allow the teacher/user the ability to move about the room and not be chained to the front board. I believe it gives flexibility and proximity that many students require. I think it is positive for student monitoring and therefore student learning.
