0956C - SMART Board Essentials

Registration for this Event is Closed

Course Description:

Discover how to create engaging and interactive lessons using Notebook Version 10 Software, as well as how to integrate currently used Power Point presentations, Excel spreadsheets and graphs, and Word documents into SMART lessons. The use of Digital Ink in other applications will also be explored. Learn how to import graphics from the existing Gallery, animations from the Internet, as well as video clips from United Streaming. Time will be spent exploring the interactive options now available in the Lesson Activity Toolkit.

You will learn how to employ the tools that facilitate the creation and delivery of lessons, as well as participate in a review of the literature that demonstrates the positive impact these interactive lessons have on student achievement. SMART Response System Clickers (formerly Senteo) will also be demonstrated! You do NOT need to have a SMART Board in your classroom to take advantage of the versatility of SMART Notebook software!

This course is geared towards beginners, but also will accommodate the needs of teachers/administrators who have used SMART technology. You will have lots of one-on-one time with the instructor. In addition, if your goal is to learn the basics and then train your staff, this is the course for you!

~Offered in partnership with the Howards Grove School District
