Advanced Education Team Members Now Certified on SMART Notebook 11

Educators across Ontario can now upgrade their skills and learn the latest features of Notebook 11

As Advanced Education continues its educational revolution inside classrooms throughout Ontario, it has taken another step toward remaining at the forefront of offering classroom technology and learning solutions. To stay up to date on the latest SMART technology and meet the needs of end users, Advanced’s Account Managers and Education Consultants recently achieved SMART Notebook ™11 certification.

“With many districts across Ontario already deploying SMART Notebook 11 in their classrooms, Advanced is committed to ensuring our staff is fully certified and knowledgeable on this exciting new software “said Mark McPherson, VP.

SMART Notebook ™ collaborative learning software offers teachers more creative power and flexibility than ever before. New tools and features help instructors create and deliver lessons more easily, quickly, and with greater impact. SMART Notebook 11 also provides users the flexibility to create even more exceptional learning moments in the classroom each day.

The latest addition from SMART, Notebook 11, offers streamlined features that allow teachers to focus on curriculum and students instead of focusing on the software. New and exciting “create” functions added to the SMART Notebook 11 software include an activity builder, sound recorder, a crayon tool, custom creative pen, and shape image fill. Also, newly added “teach” functions include an Internet browser, adaptive toolbar, and reset page command.

Advanced’s professional and experienced consultants are excited to now offer training on SMART Notebook 11 to educators and administrators either in one of Advanced’s Professional Development (PD) classrooms across Ontario or even at your school facilities. With more than 75 years of experience in the classroom, the Advanced education team includes former teachers with teaching degrees from recognized universities as well as Special Education designations to assist with specialized PD training for special needs classrooms.

Advanced Education can assist with any type of classroom technology solution – from a single projector to a SMART Board implementation plan for an entire school district.  For more information about Advanced Education PD training programs and to schedule a Notebook 11 training sessions, sign up today at www.advanced-education.com/pd or call 1-855-502-0035.
