Welcome to the Smart VET Network - an online Community of Practice for VET Teachers and Trainers who want to improve their ICT competencies.

This is a free online network for teaching and support staff in Vocational Education and Training, helping to improve ICT competencies and build a community for creating, sharing and reusing teaching and learning materials incorporating ICT.

About the Project

According to extensive research Interactive Whiteboards (IWBs) can create a range of learning opportunities for both teachers and students.

Although IWBs have become commonplace in VET colleges in Ireland, limited time and training resources have meant that they remain under utilised.

The SMART VET project has been commissioned to remedy this by:

  • Identifying good practice in the delivery of training on IWBs and transfering it to the VET sector in Ireland.
  • Providing VET teachers with competencies needed to design educational resources suitable for use with IWBs and to integrate them in everyday teaching activities.
  • Fostering the use of IWBs in the delivery of CPD programmes to VET teachers.

If you want to learn more about the project and access the relevant manuals and resources go to SmartVET Project.

SMART Board help needed

Posted by Lorraine Harbison on October 1, 2014 at 17:20 1 Comment

Hi, I wonder could anyone help me. For some reason, when I go on to the internet, my SMART board loses all interactive touch screen functions. We are no longer able to play games as a class as we have to use my lap top rather than just working off the screen. Has anyone else had this problem before? Do you know what I can do to resolve the situation. It worked perfectly before the summer. Thanks, Lorraine

SmartVET's project results and related summercourses are still being promoted.
