I am always ready for a brainstorm. Call me at 866-a-web-guy.
Smart Slate Interactive Teaching Tool
You may be surprised what the Smart Slate WS200, the Smart Airliner wireless slate, and other interactive slates have in common. I will tell you a bit about these products, but what they share in common is more than you will likely see on the surface. First, I want to tell you about a couple of really useful technology tools that you may see more of in the future.
Smart Slate WS200 and Smart Airliner are each teaching tools by Smart Technologies which allow a teacher to work interactively with a classroom using a Smart Board interactive whiteboard. The Smart Board was introduced in 1991, but this product and other similar types of tools are still building steam as groups seek ways to work more interactively.
This is really neat technology that we did not have when I was a kid. The school can provide students with a wireless slate that allows students and teachers to interactively share things on a whiteboard at the front of the class. Smart Slate and Smart Board interactive whiteboards are designed to increase classroom productivity and allow for better interactive sharing of ideas and solutions.
Think of the possibilities for the Smart Slate. They can be used in boardrooms, think tanks, classrooms, and other places where simplified idea sharing and extra productivity are needed. We each have a limited amount of time, and tools that help to make our time in a group more productive are very worthwhile.
Commonalities of Smart Slate WS200 and Smart Airliner Wireless Slates
I said I would tell you what these things have in common, other than the obvious similarities of manufacturer (Smart Technologies), and their potential productivity enhancements. So here it is, the unseen commonality of these items is that each of them perform better with good SEO.
Come on, you should have seen that coming. This is an Internet marketing blog with a focus on search engine optimization and social media marketing. It was a natural conclusion, but why did I decide to blog about it? I will give you two reasons.
First Reason to Blog About Smart Technologies Interactive Smart Slates: I think the products are cool. They are not paying me, and I do not have any new or refurbished Smart Board whiteboards, Smart Slate WS200, or Smart Airliners to sell or rent. If my kids’ school PTO has a fundraiser to buy whiteboards, I may hit you up to buy some cookies or come to a school bake sale, but other than that, keep your wallet in your pocket … I am not selling you anything.
Second Reason to Blog About Smart Technologies Interactive Smart Slates: OK, I listed it as the second, but it ranks right up there somewhere above second. I realized that this is one of the many products offered by a company I will meet with in a few hours. As I started drilling into their offerings, I saw that this is one that I like, and one which is dreadfully under-represented in search results. The question this begs is not of whether this product line is good or not, but rather why in the name of everything good and wholesome did nobody really take this market seriously enough to get these in every classroom?
How Does Smart Slate Relate to SEO?
This is not so unlike things I have exclaimed in recent articles like “Topeka Kansas Car Dealer Social Media Case Study” which now has hundreds of readers searching for “car dealer social media”. It has a hint of what I said about “Cigar Prices Rising With Bad SEO and Social Media Marketing” which has caused cigar dealers to ring my phone off the hook wanting to know how I can market them better. It also has a good whiff of the article I wrote about Ethicon surgical sutures titled “Ethicon Sutures: Endo Surgical Sutures“.
Why did I need another one of these articles to show people that a good search engine optimizer with a boot full of piss standing in a puddle of vinegar can outrank a whole industry in search engines? Well, I suppose that it is because I have a boot full of piss and a puddle of vinegar all around me. I was full of these things, until I leaked. Sometimes I just want to scream at the top of my lungs when I find that somebody does not grasp the value of being able to type out an article and watch it start attracting search visitors within 5-10 minutes after clicking publish. What happens if a company did this often? Wouldn’t it seem that if they could top search engines for just five to ten search terms per day by providing relevant and useful information that it would eventually add up to something really big? Yes, I think so, too. That is why I will walk into a meeting in a few hours and be able to say “this is why you need SEO” and hope that the company CEO will trust that what I tell (and show) him are valuable.
