I have been busy preparing some training material over my summer break to share with my colleagues at work, should it be needed. Below you will find a link that will allow you to download a Notebook tutorial on how to make three basic activities for your SmartBoard interactive whiteboard (you will need to have the Notebook software installed in your computer). Please feel free to download it and to share it about if you found it useful.
The tutorial will show you how to:
- make a Magic Box
- make a Quiz
- make a Fill in the Gaps exercise
Although anyone could benefit from it, the techniques used in this tutorial are very simple and it is aimed at IWB beginners, perhaps those of you who are about to go on a course or those who might want to refresh what they learnt on a course they attended recently.
If you are interested in learning some more basic skills for your IWB, I recommend you also watch this short video: Top Five Tips for creating resources for the IWB
If you are using a Mac then you might have problems downloading this file because Safari will mistake it for a .zip file. It works fine in FireFox though. In any case, just drop me a line and I’ll email it to you.
