At my old school we only had 2 Smartboards Similar to this one
and everyone else had a Mimio similar to this one.
So when I learned that I was going to be getting my very own Smartboard... I freaked a bit since I've never really used one myself. I plan on taking a day during preplanning to teach myself the ins and outs.
After my big freak out, I decided that I should research it some more... because surely there are some hints and tricks out there somewhere! And sure enough I found this wonderful site:
My favorite tip is number 3 with the magic pen. I'm betting kindergarten would be ALL over that but for 5th grade I'm thinking for of a 'Race the Clock' situation. I like the idea of a review game where they have until the question disappears to answer it correctly.
How do you use your Smartboard?
What's your favorite 'trick'?
