Lumio by SMART Helpful Hints
Monroe City Schools is in the process of placing brand new SMART boards in each classroom. The boards are the latest generation of SMART technology and they will be able to be used (eventually) without the need to connect to an actual desktop. The possibilities for the board integration into every day lessons are limitless.
However, with new technology comes a learning curve. MIS/Instructional Technology are finalizing a training program that will place "trainer teachers" on each campus. The training will be provided by SMART representatives with support from the trainer teachers and the IT Facilitator, Jodie Moorhead.
Your current SMART Notebook lessons and activities will continue to work with the exception of anything flash-based. Flash was discontinued world-wide, not just with SMART. Teachers loved the activities that were built in to SMART Notebook, and SMART has provided new, better activities to replace the activities lost to the flash purge.
Below, you will find handouts and videos for the basics of the new board. While actual human training is coming, these materials will help you get a head start on using the new boards as they are installed.
