Kapp IQ to SMART Notebook 17

August 30, 2017

Did you know??

You can now transfer drawings and notes from Kapp IQ to SMART Notebook 17!  When I heard about this, I wanted to try it so that students could polish their work and print it out if they wished.  However, I could not find instructions for the process… not saying they aren’t there.  I just couldn’t find them!  So, the other day, I spent some time experimenting and it is easy.  I have made illustrated instructions for you.   Granted they include 14 steps but after you do it a few times, it will make sense and you will be able to do it blindfolded…  well not quite blindfolded but the point is, it won’t take long.

One thing that you will need is the KAPP Add-on for SMART Notebook.  Get it here…  http://go.smarttech.com/notebook-kapp.  It will be added to the Add-Ons (puzzle piece) tab that includes Image Web Search, You Tube, SMART Blocks etc. in SMART Notebook 17.  If you don’t see it there, click on Add-Ons in the top menu and then click on Manage Add-ons…  Finally, click on SMART Kapp to ensure it is enabled and click Done.

Let me know if you have any questions about the installation or the process I described in the instruction pdf. Click here to see it.

 

Happy Learning!

Shape Attributes using Starboard Software

October 21, 2015

I was telling you that we are beginning to learn how to use the Hitachi Interactive projector with Starboard software. We have been using shapes to help the students understand sides and vertices and commonalities and differences.

To do this we like the intelli-pen, the shapes and fill so we can set different colour attributes for our shapes. Find out how easy it is to draw and tailor shapes so you can increase student understanding of simple shapes by following this link to the Hitachi Interactive Projector video.

Happy Learning!

New Videos Uploaded for Starboard Software

September 23, 2015

Recently we got a new Hitachi Interactive Projector. Some of our teachers have SMART Boards and they use Notebook but the teacher who has the Hitachi wanted to find out about Starboard software which is provided with Projector. There are videos to help out anyone who has this software.

If you follow this link, you will find out how to launch the software and how to tailor the menu and your screen. You will learn also how to put a grid to your screen, how to move the menu around and how to add or remove the onscreen trash can.

Watch for details about more Hitachi videos.

 

Happy Learning!
