During June and July 2012, 123ICTwill be busy upgrading staff laptops to the latest version of SMART Notebook. Version 11 was released at the end of May 2012 and includes many useful new features and improvements.
SMART Notebook remains a firm favourite with Oxfordshire primary school teachers and the latest version has a much more stream lined look and is designed to allow teachers to include content from web pages.
“Version 11 of SMART Notebook enables teachers to integrate online resources into SMART Notebook files, enhancing instruction and increasing classroom efficiency. A new embedded web browser allows teachers to insert a live browser page directly into a SMART Notebook file. Users can then write, draw, and drag and drop content on the page. Version 11 includes widgets such as a dictionary and translator, which will let users handwrite a query, receive the answer and move that answer to the SMART Notebook software page. An avatar widget will let teachers bring their dynamic talking avatars into SMART Notebook 11 and save them to the Gallery.”
123ICT always recommend that teachers keep their laptops up to date and we are always ready to help and advise.
