The second, and comparably the biggest news that came out of last week was that I was chosen as one of fifty to attend the SMART Exemplary Educator Summit, located at SMART's headquarters in Calgary, Canada this summer! I felt like I won the lottery when I read the news. I actually high-fived each of my students! This is such an incredible opportunity and I am so grateful for the chance to see where the pioneers of the interactive whiteboard develop their amazing products.
Lastly, this is not new news, but it is big news- the release of Notebook 11 software! I had a chance to enter the beta testing late, but participated all the same. The new look of Notebook 11 is terrific. So much has been streamline and made more easily available. Things I have said in the past that need to be "tweaked" have been fixed. I am very excited about the Activity Builder application as well as the use of widgets and in-slide web browser. The crayon tool is pretty neat, but one of my favorite new settings is the ability to make the calligraphy pen the default setting for writing! This really is a great new addition to an already-awesome software.
Don't worry, I won't leave you stranded. Go to SMART's website, download SMART Notebook 11, and then open my Star Wars Activity Builder activity. As always, enjoy!
