Smart Class

Smart Class

The presiding members in the Goenka Classroom are the Interactive white boards used in GDGPS as a replacement for traditional white boards or flipcharts. They provide ways to show students everything which can be presented on a computers desktop (educational software, web sites and others) in an actual working setting. 
 
In addition interactive whiteboards allow teachers to record their instructions and post the material for review by students at a later time. This is a very effective instructional strategy for students who are absent from school, for students struggling while learning, and for review work during examinations.
