The Smart Activity Toolkit has been available in Beta for a while now, but I am constantly meeting people who haven’t heard of it.

For those who haven’t seen it, its a bank of Flash-based widgets that are placed in your Smart Gallery. These widgets can be dragged onto your Smart Notebook page and then adapted to make your own interactive resources.

These include drag and drop labelling tasks, games of Hangman (or splat the teacher), sorting activities etc. Each one can be edited and the changes saved within the Notebook file.

You can download the Toolkit Beta from the Smart website here. And keep an eye out for the full release next year which has even more new features.

I must admit I haven’t got many examples of its use on my own website, I must sit down sometime and produce some sample files. But Jim Birney of Fife Education has some good examples for Science on his site.
