As we are aware of the fact that Technology is an ever changing medium in the world we live in today, we have integrated the SMART BOARD in our Multimedia room which is beneficial for the students as well as the teachers. The device is touch screen that allows the teacher or the student to re-size the content with the touch of a finger.
Smart Boards provide a means of learning for all students, including students with different learning styles. Most students learn by actually doing and physically interacting with a medium, so Smart Boards would give students the opportunity to explore and manipulate concepts of a lesson. Introducing fractions at elementary level through Smart Board makes math interesting . The teacher prepares an interactive activity where the students would have to go up to the board to identify different fractions. For example, the teacher could have different objects, some the same and some different, and the students would have to come up with the fraction of like objects compared to those of different objects. Since only one person can be up at the Smart Board at a time, the other students would be trying to figure out the problem on their own personal notebooks. Students could then take turns going up.
Another classroom activity incorporating a Smart Board, that teacher could use in the classroom setting, would be the frog dissection application. This application shows a frog on the board along with all the tools and materials needed to complete the dissection. The teacher could set up the lesson by teaching the students the different terms and procedure of dissecting the frog. The application allows for exploration and dissection of the frog, just like an actual frog would allow for. This is a good way to bring reality into the classroom with the use of Smart Boards. Students would still have the same opportunities to learn, just with the use of the new technology. Thus a Smart Board creates visual learners as well as aural and logical thinkers. These are just a few but there are numerous options which are beneficial making learning easy and interesting.

Special Educational Needs (SEN)
A child has special educational needs (SEN) if he or she has learning difficulties or other disabilities that make it harder for him or her to learn than most other children of about the same age. So special educational needs could mean that a child has:
- learning difficulties – in acquiring basic skills in school
- emotional and behavioral difficulties – making friends or relating to adults or behaving properly in school
- specific learning difficulty – with reading, writing, number work or understanding information
- sensory or physical needs – such as hearing or visual impairment, which might affect them in school
- communication problems – in expressing themselves or understanding what others are saying
- A medical or health condition – which may slow down a child’s progress and/or involves treatment that affects his or her education.
Children make progress at different rates and have different ways in which they learn best. NIMS Dubai SEN Support Unit identifies all needs and facilitates inclusion at all levels.Children making slower progress or having particular difficulties in one area are given extra help by the teachers in a regular class room through Individual Educational Program (IEP) or through Remedial Classes by Special Educators at the Resource Room to help them succeed.
