Recent technological developments have made access to information easy. Today, countries are giving shape to their educational policies by including information technologies in their education systems. One of the information technologies that are in wide use is smart boards. This research aims to determine the positive and negative impacts of smart board usage on class management. The difficulties teachers experience in class management, skills of teachers in terms of ensuring motivation in the class, their levels of using technologies, abilities to use computer and computer programs, and attitudes towards preparing and benefiting e-content are all taken into consideration. Based on the research findings, we concluded that smart board usage has a positive impact on in-class communication and makes the courses fun and entertaining. The students are said to be more careful and concentrated, and this makes it easier for teachers to manage the classroom while positively affecting time management.
