2 Designing Interactive SMART Board Lessons Lesson activities need to be designed for both content and presentation. The SMART Board interactive whiteboard is a visual and an interactive medium. Knowing a little about design and the best practices on how to integrate interactivity using Notebook software will help you create lesson activities that meet curriculum learning objectives and engage students. Creating content in Notebook software with the knowledge it will need to be presented in a classroom setting will ensure your lesson goes smoothly. Creating a Title Page and Teacher's Notes Page Once you have determined what content you will be teaching, create a title page and write your teacher s notes at the beginning of your lesson activity. Titles and teacher s notes focus learning objectives and provide important information to any other teachers who use the lesson activity. You can see examples of how other teachers have created these things by downloading any lesson activity from the education solutions website Setting up your page Once you have an idea for a Notebook software lesson activity, you will need to start designing your page. One of the first things you will want to do is decide on a background color. When choosing a color, keep in mind that very bright or intense colors can be distracting and draw attention from the page content to the background. A bright yellow might seem like a fun choice, but it may also distract from other elements on your page. Reserve the most vibrant colors for individual objects on your Notebook page to which you want to draw student attention. Designing Interactive SMART Board Lessons- Revised June
3 Saving a Notebook File Automatically (Timed Saves) You can set Notebook software to save your Notebook file automatically every time you navigate to a different page or after a specified period of time. 1. Select File > Timed Saves. 2. Select Every time I move to a different page to save your Notebook file automatically every time you navigate to a different page. OR Select 1 minute, 5 minutes, 15 minutes or 30 minutes to save your Notebook file automatically after a specified period of time. 3. Press Next. 4. Select Notebook Document. 5. Browse to your network folder where you'd like to save the new file. Type a name for the file in the File name box. Notebook software automatically saves the file as a.notebook file. NOTE: In Notebook software 9.5, the default file type is.notebook, whereas in versions 8, 9.0 and9.1, the file type was.xbk. If you want to create a file in Notebook software 9.5 that older versions of Notebook software can open, save your file manually as an.xbk file. 6. Press Save.

4 Aligning Objects on a Notebook Page You can move objects to another location on a Notebook page. If you want, you can display guidelines on a Notebook page to assist you in aligning objects with other objects, as well as the page's vertical and horizontal centers. You can also set objects to align automatically with these guidelines when you move the objects on a Notebook page. To display guidelines: 1. Select Format > Alignment. The Alignment Guides dialog box appears. 2. To display a guideline when you move an object into alignment with another object, select Show guides for active objects 3. To display a guideline when you move an object into alignment with the page's vertical center, select Show vertical page center guide 4. To display a guideline when you move an object into alignment with the page's horizontal center, select Show horizontal page center guide. 5. To automatically align objects to guidelines when you move the objects on a Notebook page, select Snap objects to guides. 6. If you want to change the color of the guidelines, press the colored bar to the left of Guide Color, and then select a color. 7. Press OK. Designing Interactive SMART Board Lessons- Revised June
5 Background Color Select a background color by selecting Format > Background Color from the Notebook software menu. A color palette will launch from which you can choose the background color of your Notebook page. Next, you should choose the fonts you will want to use for the remainder of your lesson activity. When you are choosing a font, you are choosing how your text will appear in Notebook software. For example, Times New Roman, Comic Sans and Arial all look very different. If possible, try using only one font throughout your lesson activity. Too many fonts can be distracting to the eye and draw attention away from important points. Consider the size and color of text you will be using throughout your lesson activity. Good choices will make it easier for all your students to read the text on your Notebook page. Once you have decided what your text will look like, make sure you keep it consistent to give your lesson a nice flow from one page to another. General guidelines for choosing fonts for your Notebook software lesson activity include the following: Titles should be at least 28 point and a bold type face Text used for sentences and paragraphs should be the same font as the header, 22 point and in a regular type face Make sure the font color you choose is easy to read and see against the background color you have chosen Designing Interactive SMART Board Lessons- Revised June
6 NOTE: The content of your Notebook software lesson activity is more important than the overall color scheme. It s OK to use black text on a white background if you would rather not spend time choosing colors. Working with fonts in Notebook software One way to set your font is to select your text and use the functions available from the Fonts toolbar. The Fonts toolbar appears whenever you are typing on the Notebook page or after you double press a text object. Setting up a Permanent Font Style If you know you will be using the same font over and over, you may want to set up a permanent font style under the Text button. To do this, press the arrow beside the Text button on the Notebook software toolbar and select Customize Text. The Customize Text dialog box will allow you to tailor the fonts available from the text button drop-down menu to the styles you will use most often. Grouping Objects on a Page You can create a group of objects, which lets you interact with all grouped items at the same time. After you create a group, you can select, move, rotate, resize or flip the group as if it were an individual object. However, if you want to interact with an individual object in a group, you must ungroup the objects first. To group objects 1. Select the objects. 2. Press the menu arrow of any one of the selected objects, and then select Grouping > Group. To ungroup objects 1. Select the group. Designing Interactive SMART Board Lessons- Revised June
7 2. Press the group's menu arrow, and then select Grouping > Ungroup. Automatic Grouping When you draw or write on an interactive screen, SMART Notebook automatically groups the objects you create in close proximity, enabling you to interact with these objects as a single object. For example, if you write the letters of a word, SMART Notebook groups the individual letters into a single object, allowing you to interact with the whole word. If SMART Notebook groups objects that you want to manipulate individually, ungroup the objects, as described above. Rearranging Stacked Objects on a Page If objects overlap on a page, you can rearrange the order of the stack (that is, you can control which objects appear in front of others). To move an object to the front of the stack 1. Select the object. 2. Press the object's menu arrow, and then select Order > Bring to Front. To move an object to the back of the stack 1. Select the object. 2. Press the object's menu arrow, and then select Order > Send to Back. To move an object one place forward in the stack 1. Select the object. 2. Press the object's menu arrow, and then select Order > Bring Forward. To move an object one place backward in the stack 1. Select the object. 2. Press the object's menu arrow, and then select Order > Send Backward. Designing Interactive SMART Board Lessons- Revised June
8 Adding Interactivity One of the benefits of Notebook software is the ability to modify objects on the page. This section will focus on some of the different ways you can engage your students by designing interactive lesson plans. Reveal One of the quickest ways to add interactivity to a lesson activity is to hide the answer to a question behind an object on the Notebook page. The following information will provide three different methods that you can use to create reveal activities that can easily be integrated into any curriculum. Move and reveal One way to create a reveal activity is to hide an answer behind another object. 1 Type your question and answer 2 Draw a rectangle and fill it with color to hide the answer 3 Double-press the shape for the ability to add text to it ensure your text is a different color than the rectangle 4 Type Move the box to reveal the answer you are adding instructions to the shape so others will be able to work with the file. Without the instructions, someone might assume they are supposed to write the answer over the shape instead of moving it to reveal the answer. NOTE: It is a good practice to select Order > Bring to Front from the drop-down menu on any object you will be using to cover an answer. This action will ensure your students don t see the answer before it is time for it to be revealed. 5 Move the shape to reveal the answer 6 Cover your answer with the rectangle. Designing Interactive SMART Board Lessons- Revised June
9 7 Move the shape to reveal the answer. Erase and reveal Another way to reveal information is with the Eraser tool. 1 Type your question and answer 2 Select a pen color (do not choose highlighter) and drag across the answer with digital ink. 3 Set the page background color to that of the pen. For example, if the page background is white, then the digital ink should be white. 4 Select the Eraser tool, and erase the digital ink covering the answer. NOTE: The Eraser tool will only erase objects created with digital ink. Anything typed with your keyboard cannot be erased with the Eraser tool. NOTE: You may want to add instructions that let the class or other teachers know that all they need to do is to use the eraser. Screen Shade reveal The third way you can reveal information is with the Screen Shade tool. 1 Type your question and answer 2 Click on the Screen Shade button on the Notebook software toolbar Designing Interactive SMART Board Lessons- Revised June
10 3 Drag the Screen Shade so only the answer to your question is covered 4 When you are ready, drag the Screen Shade so it no longer covers the answer. This action is similar to using paper to cover answers that would be displayed through an overhead projector. NOTE: When you open a Notebook file, the Screen Shade will be covering the same area it was hiding, and you will be able to start discussing the content in your file from exactly where you left off. Identifying and labeling Drag and drop Drag and drop activities are an excellent way to determine if your class has achieved recognition about specific learning objectives. To create a drag and drop labeling activity: 1. Add the object you want labeled to the work area. NOTE: The object can come from the Notebook software Gallery, the My Content area or it might be a graphic you imported using the Insert menu. 2. Use the object drop-down menu to lock the object that will be labeled in place. This action ensures the object won t be accidentally moved during the lesson activity. 3. Next, make the labels for your diagram and line them up on the Notebook page. Then you can ask students to drag the labels to the appropriate area of the graphic. Student Activity Answer Page You may want to add a link to an object, such as the cell above, to another Notebook software page with an answer key. This page will help anyone you share the file with find the correct answers. Designing Interactive SMART Board Lessons- Revised June
11 Drag and drop activities can also be used for text-based lessons. For example, you might drag events to specific dates on a timeline or define a series of words. Infinite Cloner The Infinite Cloner allows you to reproduce an object an unlimited number of times, without having to select clone repeatedly from the drop-down menu. The Infinite Cloner also helps keep your Notebook file s size smaller than if you were to copy and paste the same information, making the file easier to share with your colleagues. To set an object as an Infinite Cloner, complete the following steps: 1 Select an object 2 Click on the object's drop-down menu 3 Select Infinite Cloner 4 Click on the object, then drag to create an identical object One advantage of the Infinite Cloner feature is the ability to use the same object for multiple answers to create a drag and drop activity without diluting the pool of available options each time a question is answered correctly. Designing Interactive SMART Board Lessons- Revised June
12 Another benefit of the Infinite Cloner feature is to keep information in context which makes it easy to keep information in context. This feature is especially useful for text-based lessons. Inserting Tables on a Notebook Page You can add tables to your Notebook page. After you create a table, you can insert objects into the table's cells, including freehand objects, geometric shapes, straight lines, text and graphics files. If you want to customize a table, you can select a table, column, row, cell or selection of cells, and then you can: Move the table. Change line type, fill and text properties. Resize the table, a column or a row. Insert or remove columns, rows or cells. Split or merge cells. Designing Interactive SMART Board Lessons- Revised June
13 Add or remove a cell shade. You can also delete the tables that you don't want. To insert a table 1. Press Table. OR Select Insert > Table. An eight by eight grid appears. 2. Move the pointer over the grid to select the number of columns and rows that you want in the table. The cells of the grid correspond to the cells of your table. The table appears on the Notebook page. Animating Objects on a Notebook Page You can animate an object to fly onto a page from the side, spin, fade in, shrink, and more. You can set the animation to start when you open a page or when you press the object. To animate an object 1. Select the object. 2. If the Properties tab isn't visible, press Properties. 3. Press Object Animation. 4. Select options in the Type, Direction, Speed, Occurs and Repeats lists. Designing Interactive SMART Board Lessons- Revised June
14 Using sound Notebook software makes it very easy to engage auditory learners by using sound within a lesson activity. It is also a good way to give students insight into a speaker s personality listening to a historical speech, rather than reading, can be more engaging for students. Search the Notebook software Gallery to help you find the sounds you need. Try keywords like sound or phonics to learn what content is already available. Adding Sound from the Gallery 1. Press the Gallery tab. 2. Search for a sound item. **NOTE: Sound objects have a sound icon on it. 3. Drag an item onto the page OR click an item and select Insert in Notebook from the item's menu arrow. 4. To play the sound, click on the object. Sound as a Reinforcement Tool One way to use sound is to give immediate feedback to students when they touch specific objects in Notebook software.
