PRESS RELEASE FROM SMART TECHNOLOGIES

SMART Technologies Provides Complimentary Distance Learning Resources and Software to Support Educators and the Community

Posted Apr 09, 2020

Whether at home or in the classroom, SMART and our team of educators put together a site to help provide tools, lessons and webinars for the tireless teachers, leaders, parents and students to help navigate these unchartered times. In addition to a library of resources, SMART is offering complimentary access to SMART Learning Suite Online to support cloud-based teacher-led lessons or self-paced learning through the end of the school year.

SMART Learning Suite Online empowers virtual collaboration on student devices with interactive lesson delivery, collaborative workspaces, game-based activities, and formative assessments. Students can complete interactive self-paced lessons remotely and engage in teacher-led learning activities together for real-time feedback and discussion. Integrations with familiar platforms like Microsoft and Google make it easy for teachers to leverage existing school accounts and lesson content.

Visit SMART’s distance learning resources website for ready-made lessons organized by grade level, ideas for various learning plans and resources for distance learning support. The site provides “how-to” videos and live webinars to help teachers, leaders and students with this sudden shift to at-home learning. The SMART education team has also provided a parent portal to help parents identify and implement engaging lessons while at home.  

Webinars & Videos:

Webinars: Getting Started with Distance Learning & More - various ongoing webinars are hosted by the SMART education team and are available for anyone to attend, whether a teacher, leader, parent or student.

Facebook Watch Parties and Live streams: follow SMART Technologies on Facebook and tune in to live sessions on distance learning that are running regularly. These will also include LIVE lessons for at-home students and other great content.

Twitter Chats: Also follow @smart_tech on twitter as they will be hosting chats to give educators and others a space to share challenges, discuss solutions, and find resources. Join in every Thursday at 4:00 ET.

SMART Technologies wants to thank educators for their tireless efforts in education and hope this complimentary access and easy-to-use learning software can help support students’ growth during this time.
