December 24, 2008 THE VILLADOM TIMES II • Page 7 Ridgewood Willard students take SMARTBoard to ‘outer space’ Students in Donald Friel’s second grade class at Willard School in Ridgewood recently used a SMARTBoard – an inter- active whiteboard connected to a computer -- to take a trip to “outer space.” Students donned space suits and entered a mock space shuttle for the simulated trip, which was the culminating exercise of a program using the SMARTBoard. The program featured a PowerPoint presentation that highlighted the seven continents using Google Earth, and was competed with a class-created iMovie to showcase the universe and show the chil- dren in Ridgewood where they live. Parents were invited to the interactive SMARTBoard celebration, along with dis- trict administrators. Students demonstrated how the SMARTBoard operates when used in conjunction with a document camera, and explained how they use their SMART- Board’s software to complete assignments and assist in math lessons with electronic manipulatives and electronic money. ‘Pinkalicious’ comes to village The Junior Woman’s Club of Ridgewood will present the Vital Theatre Company’s production of “Pinkalicious: The Musical” at George Washington Middle School on Jan. 18.
