A New York teacher anxious for new classroom technology, like an interactive SMART board, won $9,400 in equipment in a nationwide contest that includes training on how to use it in lessons. "These SMART Boards are used out in many fields, and my students already have seen them and used them," said sixth-grade teacher Cathy Kelly. "The technology also has rejuvenated me as a teacher. And the students are more engaged. They are more focused. And I've seen enormous improvements in their grades."
