Smart have just released another short video that demonstrates a few ways to interact with their interactive surface including using your finger, a tennis ball or a pointer. Check it out:
If you don’t have a posh Smart pointer, a long, clean paintbrush will do the job.
Another way of helping pupils reach the tools is to move the Notebook toolbar to the bottom of the page using the double arrow icon on the toolbar. This puts it at the bottom of the screen. Remember to put any items that you want pupils to interact with towards the bottom of your Notebook page if height is going to be an issue in your classroom.
More Smart videos can be found on the Smart Classrooms YouTube channel.
