What is SmartNoteBook?

SMART NotebookTM collaborative learning software

 

SMART Notebook software sets the standard for creating, delivering and managing interactive lessons within a single application. All your lesson materials are right at your fingertips.

With a rich set of design and delivery features and a multitude of digital resources, SMART Notebook software connects you to a full ecosystem of content, tools and support to help you create high-impact lessons that bring learning to life.

A powerful and easy-to-use application, SMART Notebook software enables you to easily deliver interactive lessons that create more extraordinary learning moments for your students.

See how SMART Notebook software brings simplicity to the SMART Board interactive whiteboard in a real-life classroom environment.

 SMART Ease of Use video.

 

 SMART Notebook software is collaborative learning software and content delivery platform that gives users access to interactive, multimedia content and the tools to edit, save and share that content. The interface for Notebook software divides the screen into two sections: whiteboarding space and a tab column. There are three tabs: Page Sorter, for viewing and organizing thumbnails of Notebook pages; Gallery, for accessing and saving images, sounds, movies, animations and text files; and Attachments, for attaching files, shortcuts, and links that can then be accessed during presentations. Notebook software users can create multi-page interactive documents and presentations by dragging content and pages between the whiteboarding space and the tabs without leaving the application. Users can create their own content, or use content from the searchable Gallery of educational material. Notebook Software 10 is the most current version. SMART Notebook software was awarded the 2008 Worlddidac Award for outstanding product in the category of Products – All General School Subjects.

SmartNotebook for Students:

 

 

SMART NotebookTM SE (Student Edition) collaborative learning software

 

SMART Notebook SE is the student version of SMART Notebook software. SMART Notebook SE allows students to create, share, organize and store digital files. The software is available in a USB bracelet and is compatible with any Windows or Mac computer, including PCs, student laptops, tablets or PDAs. SMART Notebook SE works in conjunction with SMART Notebook software but does not require SMART Notebook to function.

 

SMARTNoteBook vs SMART Notebook SE

The applications accommodate the needs of different users. SMART Notebook enables teachers to create, deliver and manage dynamic, media-rich lesson activities from within one application. Teachers would normally teach these lessons using a SMART Board™ interactive whiteboard or Sympodium™ interactive pen display. SMART Notebook SE meets the needs of digital natives. It caters to nonlinear, higher-order thinking and enables them to manage, sort and categorize both their in-class and at-home assignments. With more mouse tools, the software is designed for use on a computing device rather than a whiteboard.
