A SMART Board is a an interactive device that connects with your computer and possibly a projector to display the content from your computer. If you use a projector, you can use a drawing device on the board that acts as a mouse. However, if you don't have a projector, you can still use the SMART Board as an interactive whiteboard. This allows you to easily write content on the board with specially designed SMART Board markers.
