1st Grade's February Coaching Day Techtivities

Welcome Back Teachers!

Saving Videos:

Use to download and save video to your computer or thumbdrive.  After you find a video you like on youtube/iBoss, hover your mouse over the video and right click.  A drop down of options will appear, select "Copy URL," and then open a new tab and go to and right click/paste the URL into the DOWNLOAD box, and hit the DOWNLOAD button. A thumbnail pic of the video will appear below the address box, and you may then select the type of file you would like to save.  If you select FLV (Flash Video), in SmartNotebook you can then select Insert on the top toolbar, and select Insert the Flash Video from the drop down options.

Trouble Shooting Your SmartBoard:  Wipe the dust off your pen tray, and calibrate.

Dust clogging the sensors can prevent the board from detecting when a pen or eraser is picked up.  Wipe off the dust from your pen tray as needed if you are not getting a light over the pen tray when you pick up one of the pens.

To calibrate, I found a great video that explains it way better than I ever could!  Enjoy!

SmartNotebook Lesson Activity Toolkit

Today we are accessing previously created activity templates.  Find the Gallery icon, the Framed picture on your left side's tool bar.  Click it, and then select Lesson Activity Toolkit 2.0 and then if we have time, we will research lessons from using a login I have created for training, and password (email me or create your own using your own email).

We divide into groups and build our first activity in the Lesson Activity Toolkit->Activities. There is a 4 page handout with a breakdown of all the activities and games.  Thank you Mrs. Jackson for getting it all printed in color, it is very helpful!  Don't loose it!

Thank you so much for your support and helping your neighbors during this time.  Comment below if you have questions. Or requests for a Tech Tuesday :)
