The purpose of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of SMART board technology by examining rates of participation by students, and evaluating the students' ability of completing their work while focusing on students with disabilities. Students with learning disabilities sometimes have a lack of engagement in completing tasks due to inattention. Technology such as the SMART Board helps students and allows them to learn more effectively. The SMART Board also creates an opportunity for teachers to differentiate instruction for all of their students. The SMART board can increase motivation, offer self-paced practice, and create a high-interest learning environment. Educators should have an interest in the use of this interactive whiteboard and how it can enhance student learning.
