This course begins by teaching you how to use the lesson activity toolkit. You will specifically look at its usefulness in language learning where you can make activities such as drag and drop and matching pairwork. You will study how to use the category sorting where you'll be able to create six types of activities such as text sorting, image matching, keyword matching, image arranging, sentence arranging, and a whole lot more.

You will then learn tips and techniques for editing and managing the objects and text on the pages. With this course, you will learn how to use the erase feature of the SMART Whiteboard to quickly go back to the previous blank page, the paper clip feature to quickly access resources and insert files, and the camera to capture information from the Web. You will also learn how to insert and resize the text on your page.

The use of interactive whiteboards has become commonplace in many school classrooms and training rooms. Interactive whiteboards give teachers and trainers an enormous capability in terms of the type of teaching techniques they can engage in and the kind of materials they can present as part of their teaching programs. Upon the completion of this course, you will be able to prepare lessons using the SMART Technologies application so make sure to check this course out and make your lessons fun and interactive!
