Lumio by SMART Training Schedule and 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 training schedules, handouts, and videos for the basics of the new board!

Lumio Basics Review and Q/A Session

At this point, hopefully everyone will be familiar with and using the new Lumio software. This session will review all of the basics required to creating lessons in the new Lumio software. It will also cover how to engage the students using Chromebooks, iPads, etc. in the classroom feature of Lumio. It will end with a question/answer session.

Lumio – Importing Resources into the Interactive Environment and
Lumio Exploring, Importing, and Customizing Ready-Made Activities
Meeting ID: 859 7444 1883
Teachers always have PDFs, PowerPoint presentations, WORD documents, etc,. that were created as part of a lesson or unit. Teaches can use their existing resources and turn them into individual student activities or whole-class collaboration without the stress of the old methods. Once imported, they can be manipulated and “marked-up” as needed for the lesson.
Teachers loved the SMART Exchange because they could find lessons that were ready-made and downloadable. Some teachers were hesitant to download a lesson because some of the material may not have been needed. This session will guide teachers in finding lessons, importing the lessons, and then customizing the lesson to make it work best for their students! Work “SMART-er, not harder!”
