1 Florence School District #1 Module 1: SMART Board Basics SMART Board Basics Revised Jan

2 SMART Board Interactive Whiteboard Basics The SMART Board interactive whiteboard 600 and 800 series is touch sensitive and operates as part of a system that includes a computer and a projector. The computer sends an image of an application to the projector. The projector casts the image onto the interactive whiteboard. The interactive whiteboard acts as both the monitor and input device, allowing you to control any application by touching the screen. It may help you to think of your interactive whiteboard the same way you think of your mouse or keyboard. It is an input device that enables you to control applications on your computer. Setup instructions depend on the model of SMART Board interactive whiteboard. The SMART Board 6065 interactive flat panel features SMART proprietary DVIT (Digital Vision Touch) technology and combines a premium touch experience with collaborative software, 4K ultra-high definition resolution, and a shadow free display. You can use an interactive whiteboard instead of flip charts, whiteboards, overhead projectors and chalkboards: Use SMART Notebook software and SMART Board tools to create, save and reuse engaging learning materials Integrate audio, video and the Internet into your lessons Encourage collaboration and interaction SMART Board Basics Revised Jan

3 Getting started with the SMART Board Interactive Whiteboard This section provides an overview of the information you need to begin using a SMART Board interactive whiteboard. Before you begin, make sure the appropriate SMART Board software has been loaded on your computer. For more information, refer to your SMART Board User s Guide. 1. Ensure the interactive whiteboard and projector is connected to the computer. 2. Turn on the projector, then the computer. The interactive whiteboard draws power from the computer and will be activated automatically. The Ready Light, indicating the status of your interactive whiteboard, will be red while the SMART Board and the computer are establishing communication. 600 Series NOTE: Depending on the model of the SMART Board interactive whiteboard you are using, the Ready Light is either located on the right side of the SMART Pen Tray or the lower-right of the frame bezel. 800 Series 3. Log on, if required, using the computer keyboard. When the Ready Light on the pen tray turns green, the computer and the interactive whiteboard have established communication. The SMART Board is now touch sensitive, and you can open any application available on the connected computer. SMART Board Basics Revised Jan

4 NOTE: After you turn on your computer, the Ready light is red while the SMART Board interactive whiteboard and the computer establish communication Series Cameras and reflective tape channel In the corners of the screen there are cameras that track finger and pen positions across the screen. Te screen is bordered by a channel that contains reflective tape. Speakers You integrated flat panel contains two 10W integrated front firing speakers. You can conect external speakers if you wish to do so. Pens and Erasers Your interactive flat panel coes with two pens and eraser attached. SMART Board Basics Revised Jan

5 Simply walk up and begin using the display. The SMART Board detects if you re using a finger, pen or eraser, saving the time and confusion spent on having to manually change modes. SMART s first display with pen ID, you can write in differently colored ink with the pens, simultaneously, so you re not locked into the choice of your partner Testing Basic Functionality on the Microsoft Windows Operating System It s a good idea to test the basic functionality of your interactive whiteboard to ensure all the applications you will be using to deliver your lesson or presentation are working properly. If your cursor appears a few inches away from your touch, orient the interactive whiteboard. Orientating the SMART Board Interactive Whiteboard In order to maintain accuracy it is necessary to orient the SMART Board. Orienting the SMART Board interactive whiteboard tells the computer where the image is projected on the interactive whiteboard. Complete this process in any of the following situations: When you set up the interactive whiteboard When you have moved the interactive whiteboard or the projector When the interactive whiteboard does not interpret your touch accurately To orient a SMART Board 600 series interactive whiteboard 1. Press and hold the On-Screen Keyboard button and the Right-Click button simultaneously until the Orientation screen appears 2. Begin at the upper-left corner of the Orientation screen. Press your finger or pen tool firmly on the center of each cross in the order indicated by the white, diamond-shaped graphic. SMART Board Basics Revised Jan

6 NOTE: The point is registered when you remove your finger, not when you first touch the Orientation screen. TIP: If you are not satisfied with the precision of a particular orientation point while orienting, press one of the pen-tray buttons or the left arrow key on your keyboard to redo the previous orientation point. Orientation for 6065 Series To orient the interactive flat panel 1. Open SMART Settings 2. Press Orient 3. Press the red targets as they appear. Hold your finger or the tip of the pen at the center of each target, and then lift the pen or finger. When you lift the pen or finger, the target moves to the next orientation point. 4. Continue until you ve pressed all the targets. The orientation window closes. 5. If this doesn t correct inaccurate touch, calibrate your interactive flat panel. To calibrate the interactive flat panel 1. Open SMART settings SMART Board Basics Revised Jan

7 2. Press SMART Hardware Settings 3. If you have more than one SMART Product connected, select the interactive flat panel 4. Select advanced settings from drop-down list 5. Press calibrate The calibration screen appears. This can take a few moments. 6. Press the red target with the tip of an interactive flat panel pen. Hold tip at the center of the target until the target turns green, and then lift the pen. The target moves to the next location 7. Continue pressing targets until the second calibration screen and a grid appears. An example appears briefly to demonstrate how to draw across the screen to calibrate the interactive surface. 8. Use a pen to draw s spiral horizontally across the grid. As you draw the ink is blue. As you complete each square, the square becomes green. 9. When all the squares are green, a progress bar appears. When the progress bar is full, the interactive flat panel displays the message, calibration successful. 10. Orient your interactive flat panel SMART Board Basics Revised Jan

8 Changing the 600 and 800 Orientation Settings When working with applications that require greater precision, you might need to increase the detail of the orientation process. 1. Press the SMART Board icon in the Windows notification area, and then press SMART Settings in the menu 2. In the Control Panel window, press the SMART Hardware Settings button. The SMART Hardware Settings window opens. 1. Select Orientation/Alignment Settings from the drop-down menu 2.

Press the image of the product whose settings you want to change. 5. Select Orientation/Alignment Settings in the list. 6. Select the orientation precision level you want. The Quick orientation uses 4 alignment points and is suitable for most purposes. You can perform a Quick orientation to re-orient the interactive product with minimal interruption. The Standard orientation uses 9 alignment points and provides a slightly higher level of accuracy. The Wide orientation uses 12 alignment points and is suitable for wide-screen products. The Fine orientation uses 20 alignment points. Note: Some orientation levels are not available on some SMART products. 7. Press OK to close the control panel. SMART Board Basics Revised Jan
