Today we'll spend some time getting reacquainted with your SMARTBoard or Interactive White Board (IWB). The goal of today is to make this as much of a hands-on experience as it can be for you all. PLEASE don't hesitate to ask any questions you have or that pop up during the training.

See the attached SMART Demo Notebook File, along with a PDF version of the same document.

We'll??also take a little time to introduce you to your new computers – you have both a new operating system AND a brand new version of Microsoft Office that you may have never seen before. I don't have a lot of experience with either Windows 7 or with Office 2010, but thankfully I know where to find EXCELLENT quick-guides for these new tools.

I can't re-post them here, but all of the quick guides that I'll share with you today came from Custom Guides Quick References. You can follow that link and after a quick registration gain access to the following guides, along with almost any other software or operating quick guides you can think of – both on the Mac and PC:
  • Windows 7
  • Office 2010 Overview
  • Microsoft Word 2010
  • Microsoft Excel 2010
  • Microsoft PowerPoint 2010
