"SMART is killing me! After telling teachers to make sure 11.1 should be loaded and there would only be one major update each year (via SMART), yesterday 11.2 was released. Does anyone know what it entails."
"Make sure you are connected to a SMART Board and restart your computer.

Do any of you know what it is you download from Microsoft to be able to use Chrome with SMART Ink within Notebook and Meeting Pro. SMART told me it was a Microsoft Tab but could not find what they were talking about.See More
"Yes, I have found this in many of my presentations. It seems it is more so when there are numerous flash items in a single notebook. It is almost like using the flash files on a Mac but I am on windows 7."
"Helen, I am in GA also and have some handouts you may be interested in. They are mostly Tips and Tricks. I have done many classes using these and some other resources along this line. I am in the training department at Unifiedav."
"Have any of you taken the Notebook 11 assessment? I am having a hard time reading the LW due to the fact it is hard to read that much material online. I would really like to print the resources. Is the webinar enough?"
"I am having issues with Windows 7 and being hooked to a board. I have done 4 emails worth of "fixes" SMART has sent me to try and I still get the keyboard from windows popping up and the circle select icon where ever I touch. I have…"
I use a MAC 10.5 and 10.4 with Notebook 10 all the time. I am still using Notebook 10 from about Feb 2009 because I like my Notebook to be reliable and work so I don't update to the latest Notebook until the update has been out about 6 months. Flash is what I have the most problems with on my MAC which all the Toolkit items are flash so I instruct users how to creatively use Notebook with little flash.
That would be great to see. If I get more I will share them too. I am in the process of working with a college in Florida who will be creating HEd specific content for us, that will be a huge help! I hope you are feeling better soon, it is awful to be sick, especially in the summer.
Hi Dianne, we just had a big adoption of SMART Boards at a career college where they have over 100 campuses across the US and Canada. You mentioned that you did a training for a technical school, can you share with me what kind of content you showed them? They are trying to adopt Notebook as a common platform but their instructional designers are having difficulty coming up with examples of HEd relevant content (I am working on it - but not much yet).
We are working on getting more examples of how educators in higher ed use NB software. Unlike K-12 teachers, we see fewer examples of NB being used for lesson activities. Most HEd users, other than perhaps those in education departments, primarily use the annotating and ink aware applications of the SMART Board in Windows or Mac applications (eg PowerPoint, Keynote), or to annotate over publisher created content. Or, they may use it to capture content from websites or have students use the board to remix and create shared content. I could go on! I am going to conduct a customer survey to find out more information but that will take some time. In the meantime, I do get some good examples via Google searches or on YouTube.
Hi Dianne - good to see you here as well. Unfortunately, I won't be at the class. I am leaving the next day for Florida so I'll be out running errands. You'll be teaching in room 106 which is right down the hall from where you taught the last time you were in the lower school. It is Rozzie Bird's classroom and she'll be in the class. Edi Houghton is the Asst. Principal and she'll be talking your class as well. Gayle, Anne, and Daniel are also from the lower school and will be beginners. If you give out flash drives again like you did last year can you leave an extra one for me with Rozzie? Pretty please.... :-)
Hope you will get some down time over the summer. Donna
