Smart boards in education


Write an outline for a proposal, please write complete points, dont write a paragraph. I’m attaching instruction, sample of outline, and the proposal.

The research will be conducted first, taking 2-3 weeks to gather the necessary information. We will use online resources such as blogs, testimonials, and data that includes the efficiency of Smart Boards. We have written a survey and interview questions so that we can gather data.
The purpose of creating a survey is to see where our audience stands on the smartboard issue. We need to see whether students believe their academic goals are being limited because of the lack of technology in the classroom. It is important to get the professors and staffs perspective on the smartboard issue as well. Below are survey questions that we have asked students:

Question 1: On a scale of 1 to 5, where 1 means not yet and 5 means proficient, how comfortable are you with using a smart board?
This first question is to see how proficient students and professors are when it comes to using a smart board. Smart boards have shown to help students achieve higher academic goals and have shown to help teachers find comfort when teaching students difficult subjects in the classroom. If students and staff are leaning more towards a 1 on the scale, then it shows that the business school is not helping their students and staff reach their full potential. If students and staff are leaning towards a 5, then it shows that the business school is not keeping up and not allowing students and staff to perform at their full potential.

Question 2: On a scale of 1 to 5, where 1 means you strongly disagree and 5 means you strongly agree, smart boards should replace traditional whiteboards in the classroom?
This second question is to see whether there is an actual demand for smart boards inside the business school. If students and staff are leaning more towards a 1 on the scale, then it shows that there is not such a high demand. A lot of the time it is because they are not well informed on the pros smart boards provide. If students and staff are leaning towards a 5, then this should motivate the business school to start taking the steps necessary to invest in smart boards.

Question 3: On a scale of 1 to 5, where 1 means strongly disagree and 5 means strongly agree, do you believe the lack of technology in your school is limiting learning in the classroom?
The last question is to see how students and staff feel about the current technology in classrooms. Smart boards carry the newest technology and carry a number a features that help students learn visually and help teachers create their own unique lessons so that they can teach to their full potential.

Survey Link:

We will interview six educators, three of whom do not currently use Smart Boards, and three of whom do use them. The purpose of the interviews is to gather information from both sides of the spectrum and compare the effect this technology has in the classroom. Here are example of a few questions that we will ask:

Question 1: What are the advantages of using a smartboard over a traditional white board?
The first question is to see the opinion of educators that do not currently use smart boards compared to educators that are currently using smart boards.

Question 2: What are the disadvantages of using a smartboard over a traditional whiteboard?
The second question is designed to remove bias from interview data. It is important to list both sides of the argument.

Question 3: Should smartboards replace whiteboards in the classroom?
The third question is a straightforward opinion from the non users and users of the technology. It reflects insights of people closest to the problem.

Question 4: Do smart boards enhance education?
The fourth question is important because it is the opinion of the people closest to the action. Professors are on the front line therefore they know what could potentially enhance the learning and teaching in the classrooms.

Question 5: Do you have any other comments?
The fifth question generates more general information pertaining to technology used in teaching.

The writing of this proposal will be guided by the outline that as a group we have created. Each of us will have a specific part that we need to write. Once each part has been done then we will go over it together to fix any grammatical, verbiage, and styling errors. We will be drafting all of this in google docs where everyone can edit each other’s work. The writing of the the proposal will take the longest for us to complete.
