Hi everyone,

Our school has two SMARTboards up and running (finally!) Since I am one of two teachers in the whole school who knows how to use them we have offered to do a PD session for the staff.

I was hoping that you could help with two things:
1. If you were going to a presentation about how to use a SMARTboard what would you like to see?
2. Does anyone have/know where to find am already made presentation that I can use for this?

Any help would be great!

I have run a few.
1. If no-one has used one before --- how to turn on and off.
2. How to align. How to bring up the keyboard onto the board.
3. Use of the pens and the rubber.
4. How to find a picture in the gallery.
5. Show them some websites that can be used on small computers and how great it is on the IWB. If it includes all year groups I would show them a mixture from early to middle to upper.
6. The best PD I ran was on how to use the camera to take a photo of the website and how to link it. I have notes on that but at school so email me if you want a copy.
7 The best idea is that they all have the programme loaded onto their home computers so they can just play with it.
I love mine and use it for a 1000 different things.

Thank you so much! I will open this on my school computer tomorrow. It looks like the PD session will be cancelled for this week, but it will be rescheduled in a few weeks.

I am excited!
