SMART's commitment to education
Strongly believing that one educator can make a difference in a student’s life, SMART has been supporting educators by providing innovative products and services since 1991.
Educators were the first to take an interest in SMART’s interactive whiteboards, immediately seeing their potential as instructional, professional development and student collaboration tools.
Since then, that initial small group of educators has grown into a large international community. There are now millions of students and teachers who use SMART solutions daily to help make learning more engaging and effective.
SMART continues to improve these solutions by listening to customers every day. We work closely with educators to create professional development programs and support an online community for teachers using our products.
Where does this commitment come from? It began with our co-founders, David Martin and Nancy Knowlton. David, now Chairman of the Board of Directors, is actively involved in the university research community. He is often invited to speak at international conferences for interactive technology innovation.
Nancy, now Vice Chair of the Board of Directors, is a former university instructor, and an active speaker at national and international education conferences. Both co-founders have made significant contributions to the global discourse on education technology.
