This page will have resources related to the August, 2012 intermediate SMART Board training sessions.  If you come across other resources that you think would be helpful to share with others, please email me using my APS email address.

General Resources

  • Download Jon’s SMART Notebook file from the workshop.  (COMING SOON!)
  • Download SMART Notebook at home.  (You will need to enter a license code within 30 days.)

Principles for Interactive Whiteboard Lesson Design and Implementation

  • Download a handout here.
  • Watch videos of some of Jon’s earlier PD sessions about SMART Board use and the Principles.

Providing Feedback

  • Download a plethora of sound effects at freesound.org (free registration required)

Content

  • There are many lessons (some better than others) available on the SMART Exchange.
    • You need a free account to use the SMART Exchange site.  Be sure to log on at the BEGINNING because you cannot download lessons without logging in, and you will lose your place if you have to back up to log in after you find a lesson you want.
  • There are many images available (though not all are public domain) on Google Images.
  • One way people can specify how their works can be used (like a copyright) is through a Creative Commons license.  Be sure to understand and respect these licenses when using images, sounds, and other resources.

Helping Students to Access Materials at Home

Polling Software
