5.0 out of 5 stars Smarter about SMART Boards January 1, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I haven't been able to find many books that discuss the basics about the SMART Board. In fact, this is just about the only book that is available. The value of this book is that it shows the capabilities of the SMART software and the SMART Board. Just detailing the various capabilities and functions of the software filled this book. I had no idea you could do so many things with these products. If you expect a lot of help developing specific kinds of activities, you might be disappointed. There are just too many possible kinds of things you can do with the software. A book that takes you step-by-step through each possible activity would be huge. But this book very thoroughly outlines the many many possible ways you can use the SMART Board, and shows you where you can learn to develop the activities.

5.0 out of 5 stars nice reference book May 31, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
We got all new smart boards in our education building but they didn't come with any type of instruction manual. These is a great resource. I got the kindle copy and a paper copy for the office staff. Most of the books for smart boards are geared for elementary school lesson plans, we teach adults and healthcare so this book comes in very handy.
