Recap of SmartBoard and Document Camera Workshop:

on Sept. 28, Colby Henard of in2change (our smartboard vendor) dazzled us with the many ways we can use the smartboard and document camera in our classes, workshops and meetings. Here are some of the exciting things we learned:

  • How to use the smartboard as a standalone electronic whiteboard.
  • How to use the whiteboard feature while projecting from your computer or the document camera, or even when playing a video on the PlayStation.
  • How the document camera can be a used to project not only paper documents, but any object including photos, models, artwork etc.
  • How students can contribute to the whiteboard content directly from their computers, even if off-campus.
  • How to save your whiteboard screens and open them again so you can start your next class/meeting right where you left off!

I’d be happy to schedule individual training with anyone wishing to practice using the many features of the smartboard!

Thanks to all who attended. We had a great attendance of 22 people.
