New Collaborative Learning Software Brings Online Resources into Classrooms

Advanced Education can provide educators with new version of SMART Notebook 11

As a leader in providing audiovisual technology to classrooms across Ontario, Advanced Education is pleased to announce that SMART Technologies Inc. has releasing version 11 of its SMART Notebook software. The software will be available as a free download for existing customers or for purchase for new customers.

Over six million teachers worldwide are already using SMART Notebook software to deliver engaging lessons to their students. Version 11 features a new embedded web browser that allows educators to insert a live web page directly into a SMART Notebook file. This will allow users to write, draw, and drag and drop content on the page. By enabling teachers to integrate online resources into their files, SMART Notebook 11 will ultimately enhance interactive instruction and increase classroom creativity and efficiency.

Version 11 features a number of new web-based widgets and tools for increased interactivity. The dictionary and translator lets users hand write a query, receive the answer and move that answer to the SMART Notebook software page. The new avatar widget lets teachers save their dynamic talking avatars to the SMART Notebook Gallery. Additional useful widgets can be downloaded from the SMART Exchange website, exchange.smarttech.com, home to over 51,000 learning resources and lessons.

Advanced Education sees SMART Notebook 11 benefiting both teachers and students by offering creative and engaging tools that interact with the SMART interactive whiteboards. As with all SMART software, SMART Notebook 11 will come with online Help, users’ guides for Windows and Mac operating systems and a number of additional helpful documents, such as a “What’s New” overview and an operating system comparison reference. The software will also come with scannable QR codes for smart phones and other mobile devices.

Advanced Education offers Ontario classrooms SMART software, interactive whiteboards and other products to help improve learning outcomes by turning classrooms into interactive learning environments..
