It's been a while since I've made an entry.... this one from Hamilton, ON.

I've just completed two days of training in Pecos, TX for the Pecos Barstow Toyah ISD. Day one was spent with a group of "power users." I spent day two with a group of teachers who have just begun, or are about to start, using SMART Board interactive whiteboards in the classroom. I had fun with both groups and, as always, learned a lot from each.

I really enjoy working with our customers to explore creative ways to employ our products to better do the jobs they do -- in this most recent instance, creating and delivering curricula to K-12 students.

Educators are big fans of our products. Time and time again I hear, "I don't know how I ever taught without it!"

On day one in Pecos I heard one teacher tell another that if he was forced to do without his, he'd quit. "Life's too short to teach without one of these," he said as he pointed to the SMART Board interactive whiteboard at the front of the room.
