INTRODUCTION
The aim of this paper is to briefly explain the using of smart board in education (advantages and disadvantages). I will talk about the history of technological education, definition of smart board, history of smart board and smart board models. I believe that technology will be used more in education. The innovations in communication and information technologies have important effects on every field of life as well as education. Educational environments are changing with a great pace due to these innovations. Educational materials have to be renewed along with the developments in technology, so that given education can answer the needs of the new age. Going along with the technology is a must for educational institutions. Changing the educational institutions according to the necessary technological norms has become a daily conversation topic for anyone in and out of the field. The wind of change grasps everyone’s attention. An education without the help of technology is unable to answer the needs of people both on individual and institutional levels.

Nowadays, in most other parts of the world, technology has taken in its unavoidable place in classrooms. They let go the classical classrooms and go along with the technology. In smart boarded classrooms, teachers are teaching their students how to possess and use the information rather than mere explanations. Teachers are no more preachers in the classrooms, as they are becoming the guide towards information with the help of smart boards. However, the crucial role of teachers is unquestionable no matter how much technology improves. Technological education tools are just means that are used. Technology is just a mean, it is not the final goal. The developments in technology have given a new shape to the modern education. Educational curricula, educational environments, education tools and materials have got into a new fashion. Teaching has got into a new dimension. In the past, education materials meant only blackboards, books, graphics and pictures; whereas, nowadays, things have changed enormously with modernist approaches. Especially, the usage of computers improved the education. Visual elements combined with sensory elements in computerized environments, this leads to easy learning which changes almost all of the parameters of the past.
