SMART™ Board Technology
Use of the SMART™ Board in drivers’ education greatly enhances both the variety and the quality of presentations. It also presents students with greater opportunity for hands-on experiences with a variety of with driving situations.
Our computer lab provides students with opportunity to practice for their upcoming permit test as well as engage in other driving simulations.
Our outdoor activities include finding the driver’s blind spots and changing a tire. Indoor activities include navigating interchanges and one-way streets using the SMART™ Board, using Matchbox cars to teach dreaded concepts such as parallel parking and the 90° backing maneuver, and playing Jeopardy™ and Pictionary™ for review purposes.
Blue Earth County Sheriff’s Deputies, Coulter, Wolf, and Mohr have all been kind enough to volunteer their time to our program. For one day each session, these deputies share with your students their experiences, the law, and the consequences regarding driving impairment. This day has become an invaluable part of our curriculum. Insurance representatives from local companies also share their expertise with our classes.
