Below are the links and notes for my OMEA/TI:ME conference session “I Have a SMART Board… Now What?” presented February 16, 2012 at 2:45 PM.
Getting started with a SMART Board in 4 easy steps
1. Setting up and orienting the SMART Board and projector
2. Commonly used tools and SMART Notebook software basics
Basic SMART Board functionality, understanding the layout of Notebook software, familiar toolbar buttons, and tools unique to the Notebook software. (Please download the session Notebook file for more information. If you do not already have the SMART Notebook software, you can download it here.)
3. Find and/or create music lessons for the SMART Board
exchange.smarttech.com: Tons of downloads and teacher created lessons
mustech.pbworks.com: Mustech Wiki – lots of downloadable SMART Notebook files and others
shop.smartboardnow.com/main.sc: SmartBoardNow sells four volumes of high quality elementary music activities for the SMART Board
