Title: The Role of Smart Boards in Enhancing Students’ Oral Presentations: The Case of Al-Majma’ah Community College, King Saud University
Author: Ezza, Elsadig Yahya
Abstract: This study is an attempt to assess the role of smart technology in enhancing the students’ presentational skills at Al-Majma’ah Community College of King Saud University in 2006. The academic pressure associated with oral presentations was assumed to consolidate the students’ competence and performance in English. This procedure was particularly required since the students were concluding their transitional four-term English programme; thus, were about to embark on a tougher English programme at the College of Arts in Riyadh where they would graduate with a B.A in English upon the completion of the third and fourth levels. By the end of the scheduled presentations, the majority of the students voiced their dissatisfaction with their own performance mainly because of their improper use of the smart board. Their appeal for additional sessions was approved and a second round of presentations started with better employment of the smart board. The second round turned out to be more productive in terms of time, coverage, communication and computer skills.
