The intention of the seminar is to create French language materials for classroom teachers to use with SMART Technologies’ classroom products, including the interactive whiteboards known as SMARTBoards ™. This is an opportunity for these teachers to share their expertise and experience with teachers of French from other areas of Canada.

Local teachers have made a number of similar contributions to content development for SMART Technolgies, the overall purpose of which is to enhance classroom learning.
