Testing out new softwares

April 15, 2015

Our school bought SMART Notebook Advantage which is an annual paid subscription program that gives us access to some really great learning resources that are not available in Notebook 11.  We can use this with our new Hitachi interactive projector.  However, since we have the Hitachi we decided to check out Starboard software which is the Hitachi interactive projector software.  You can download a 60 day trial at

I will post news about this produce once we have had a good trial.


Happy Learning!

Activity Card of the Month – April 2015

April 1, 2015

Card #11 Other People have Done the Work for You!

Have you been to the SMART Exchange lately? If not, this month’s card will explain a few details for downloading and making the files your own.

The SMART exchange has files for your SMART Board, Table, Math Tools and more. Check out the widgets, 3D items, videos, gallery items that are found in the panel at the left of the page. Professional files are being added by Pearson, Nelson, McMillan and more. Some companies are charging a nominal fee but if you are going to use the file for years, it will be worth the investment.
