Important Note for SmartBoard users.
The latest current version of the SmartBoard software is v8. This gives access to a range of additional tools and resources.
If you experience problems with the SmartBoard crashing/freezing while running an older version of the software, the first step should be to download and install the newest versions of the software from www.smarttech.com
This has been found to correct the vast majority of problems encountered.

Currently there is a minor problem with opening some files direct from the internet site into Notebook (by clicking Open). Instead Save the file to your computer and then open from there.

If you find any other faults please contact roelmann@cardiff.gov.uk
Don't forget to check out the resources on the General page as well.

The activities are not intended to be teaching activities as they stand and only show one or two examples of how different techniques can be used. Other ideas can be found by looking at the teaching activities above.
