Don't forget space for seating around your smartboard if you have one. I always add a carpet in front of my smartboard and call it my stage. It defines a space for me to give directions, students come up to the smartboard, and shows where they should begin sitting. No more crowding around the SMARTboard and stepping over each other to get to the board. Just walk on the stage!
