  • 3. Quick Reference Hardware Basics for Front Projection SMART Board Interactive Whiteboards The SMART Board™ interactive whiteboard is touch sensitive and operates as part of a system that includes a computer and a projector. It may help you to think of your interactive whiteboard the same way you think of your mouse or keyboard – it is an input device that enables you to control applications on your computer. Setup instructions depend on the model of SMART Board interactive whiteboard. Specific instructions on how to setup your SMART Board can be found at www.smarttech.com/ support/product/index.asp. The SMART Pen Tray The SMART Pen Tray consists of four color-coded slots for pens and one slot for the eraser. Each slot has an optical sensor to identify when the pens and eraser have been picked up. You can write with the pen or with your finger, as long as the pen slot is empty. The technology in the pen tray is smart enough to know which tool was removed from its slot most recently. If you remove the eraser from its slot while you are still holding a pen, the pen tray will assume you want to erase. The lights above the tool slots indicate which tool was removed last. TIP: If someone accidentally takes a pen or the eraser home, simply cover the optical sensor with a pen lid or a sticky note to continue using your interactive whiteboard until the tool is returned. • The computer sends an image of an application to the projector. • The projector casts the image onto the interactive whiteboard. • The interactive whiteboard acts as both the monitor and input device, allowing you to control any application by touching the screen.

All other third-party product and company names may be tradmarks of their respective owners. Printed in Canada 03/2008. The Pen-Tray Buttons The pen tray has at least two pen-tray buttons. One button is used to launch the On-Screen Keyboard. The second button is used to make your next touch on the interactive whiteboard a right-click. Some interactive whiteboards have a third button; this button is used to quickly access the Help Center. The Pens The SMART Board interactive whiteboard comes with four Whisper-tip™ pens (black, red, green and blue) and one eraser. Although you do not need to use the pens to write on you interactive whiteboard, the pens do make writing more intuitive. Pick up a pen from the pen tray and write on the SMART Board. To erase your digital ink, remove the eraser from the pen tray and move it in a smooth motion over your notes. Your notes will disappear. TIP: To clear a large area of digital ink, draw a circle around the area you want to erase with the eraser and tap once inside that area. All handwritten notes inside that circle will disappear. The Ready Light The Ready Light indicates the status of your interactive whiteboard. Depending on the model of the SMART Board interactive whiteboard you are using, the Ready Light is located either on the right side of the pen tray or the lower-right of the frame bezel. If the Ready Light is a solid green, your system is functioning properly. If the Ready Light is flashing or is a color other than green for an extended period of time, you should check the User’s Guide that came with your SMART Board interactive whiteboard for guidance on troubleshooting. NOTE: After you turn on your computer, the Ready Light will be red while the SMART Board interactive whiteboard and the computer are establishing communication.

  • 5. Quick Reference Orienting the SMART Board interactive whiteboard Orientation ensures your touch is registered accurately when you are using the SMART Board™ interactive whiteboard. If you press the interactive whiteboard with your finger and your cursor appears somewhere other than where you are pressing, try orienting the interactive whiteboard. Quick Orientation 1 To orient the interactive whiteboard, press and hold the Keyboard and Right Mouse buttons simultaneously until the Orientation screen appears. 2 Begin the orientation process at the upper left corner of the Orientation screen. Press your finger or pen firmly on the center of each cross in the order indicated by the white, diamond-shaped graphic. TIP: If you are not satisfied with the precision of a particular orientation point while orienting, press one of the pen tray buttons or the left arrow key on your keyboard to redo the previous orientation point. Changing Orientation Settings Increase the detail of calibration for applications that require a greater amount of precision. 1 Press the SMART Board icon in the Windows Notification Area, and select Control Panel from the SMART Tool menu. 2 From the Control Panel window, press the SMART Hardware Settings button.

The Notebook™ software Gallery helps you quickly develop and deliver lesson activities and presentations in rich graphic detail. Thousands of high-resolution images, audio, video, Macromedia® Flash® and entire Notebook files are organized into searchable collections that allow you to create attractive, reusable content.

All other third-party product and company names may be tradmarks of their respective owners. Printed in Canada 03/2008. Searching for Gallery Content There are two ways to find Gallery content. You can browse through the Gallery collections and select a folder, or you can enter a keyword into the search field, as you would when using an Internet search engine. If you were building a mathematics lesson activity about shapes, for example, you may decide to browse by topic for all Gallery items relating to Shapes, Space and Measure. However, if you were looking for a specific shape in the middle of class, you may want to type the keyword triangle into the search field to save time. To look for Gallery items using the search field 1 Press once inside the search field 2 Type a keyword related to the type of object(s) you are looking for 3 Press the Search button to display your results TIP: Press the icon to the left of the search field to use the On-Screen Keyboard to type your keyword. Using Online Resources Select Online Resources to access a list of Internet links to lesson activities, curriculum standards, classroom resources or additional Gallery content. Instead of interrupting the flow of your presentation by leaving Notebook software, you can seamlessly launch a Web page with supporting content at the same time you deliver your material. NOTE: You will require an active Internet connection and a Web browser to use Online Resources.
  • 13. Quick Reference Viewing Search Results Search results are graphically displayed as thumbnail images that match your search criteria. These thumbnail images, or Gallery items, are organized into four content types: Related Folders, Pictures and Backgrounds, Interactive and Multimedia, and Notebook Files and Pages. If you search for the keyword triangle for example, Related Folders will display all Gallery items associated with the keyword, providing you with additional content to help supplement learning activities. Double-press a folder thumbnail to view its contents. The thumbnails displayed in Pictures and Backgrounds include clip art and photographs. Drag an item to the work area to use as part of a lesson or to modify its properties. Interactive and Multimedia contains three types of content: Flash files, video files and objects with attached sounds. Items from this section of the Gallery are used to add rich media content to a lesson or presentation and engage reluctant learners with multimedia elements. Additional content can be found in Notebook Files and Pages. Notebook file thumbnails are recognized by the coil binding on the left of the thumbnail image. Drag the thumbnail image to the work area to add a page or series of pages, such as a complete lesson activity, to your existing content. Notebook files will be inserted directly after the active Notebook page. Notebook page thumbnails are identified by the folded edge in the top- right corner. Drag the thumbnail image to the work area to create a new page with a background for students to write over, such as an exercise in identifying shapes.
