SMART Technologies, a leading provider of interactive whiteboards for classroom learning, has recently released a new SMART Notebook app for the iPad. The software allows students to indulge in the SMART experience at school, home or on the go.
SMART reports that their software is already used by over six million teachers and forty million students worldwide. The new SMART Notebook app for the iPad will enable students to access most of the tools usually used on the SMART Board® interactive whiteboard – from email and file sharing to word processing and image editing. Students with iPads can therefore work on their assignments with ease and then email their homework directly to their instructor.
“SMART Notebook continues to be the software of choice for teachers looking to add interactivity into their daily lessons,” says Linda Thomas, Vice President, Products, SMART Technologies. With material displayed on a colourful screen and sound, graphics and Internet access, a typical SMART lesson is designed to make teaching and learning easier.
For teachers, the new SMART Notebook app allows for easy lesson planning. SMART have said, “Student material can also be displayed on the SMART Board interactive whiteboard for whole-class learning by wirelessly streaming the iPad content using AirPlay with an Apple TV. By using the SMART Notebook app for iPad, pupils and teachers can stay on track and save time by being able to work with the same material on both interactive displays and iPad at school or at home.”
A Gold Sponsor of eLearning Africa 2012, SMART have steadily added to their portfolio of interactive teaching tools, and a selection of these were on display at eLearning Africa in Cotonou, Benin. Speaking of the release of the latest addition to the SMART selection, Thomas says, “The SMART Notebook app for iPad allows pupils and teachers to benefit from many of the features of SMART Notebook software wherever they go, enabling learning and engagement that goes beyond the classroom.”
