Although I will focus on the "Smart" brand of interactive whiteboards, many of these ideas translate well to other brands of boards. Keystone teachers: Check your Google Drive "Tech Training" folder for additional resources.

Download Smart Notebook Software (Choose your operating system from the dropdown menu.)
  • Smart Notebook now requires a subscription.
  • See one of your tech people to get the activation key.
  • Note that there's an option to download a trial version if you don't have a key. That version will work for 30 days; you can add the key before the 30 days is up to activate the software.

My Delicious Smartboard tags I tag new Smartboard resources often, so check back from time to time!
