A Click is Worth 1000 Words

Or a click can save you a thousand words.  Assess your students throughout your lessons and dial into their level of comprehension in real time.  With the push of a button on their wireless remotes, each student can instantly tell you how much they know, a preference, how much they understand or how much they don't understand.

You'll no longer have to wonder whether all your students are keeping up with lesson material, since you'll see precisely how well each student is doing.  In an anonymous mode you can assess how the class a a whole is following your lesson.  That insight will help you adapt lessons based on test results or how students respond to your content and questions.

One system for all your assessment needs

SMART Response (formerly called Senteo) is an interactive response system combining handheld wireless remotes (or clickers), a receiver and powerful assessment software that allows you to create tests and manage, track, and evaluate the results.  SMART Response software guides you through every task with intuitive prompts, clear directions and direct links.  You always know what step you're on and where to go next.  Best of all, it integrates seamlessly with SMART Notebook software; giving you all the tools you need to design engaging and interactive test material.

If you would like to see how SMART Response and other SMART products can help you enhance whole-class, small-group and individual learning, we would be happy to give you a demonstration of this powerful tool.  For more information, give me a call or drop us an email.

 

 
SMART Board 600i Offers Greater Flexibility in the Classroom

The third-generation SMART Board 600i interactive whiteboard system offers you greater flexibility in the classroom.  A complete learning system, the 600i streamlines your teaching experience, ensuring your students are at the center of every lesson.  The 600i combines an award-winning SMART Board interactive whiteboard, a UF55 projector and an extended control panel. It enables you to easily access and control your classroom technology, including the projector and other peripheral devices, right from the front of your classroom.

Smartís latest model comes with a Touch Recognition feature that allows you to switch modes automatically. You can write with a pen, erase with your palm and move objects with your finger without having to access other tools, buttons or on-screen menus.

And if your classroom uses wide-screen laptops and monitors, or if you just need a little more room to work, the 600i is available in a wide-format option.  With the 600i, you have access to extraordinary features at an affordable price.  If you would like to see how the 600i and other SMART products can help you enhance whole-class, small-group and individual learning, contact your United Visual education specialist for a price quote or to schedule a demo!



Smart Technologies Smart Board 680 does more than ever before!

SMART Technologies SMART Board interactive whiteboard was selected as the Best Buy of 2007 by PC World magazine.  After extensive trials, judges concluded that the SMART Board 680 interactive whiteboard (77" diagonal) was superior to other interactive whiteboards in both performance and operation.  Features such as easy installation and intuitive interface, and the flexibility and richness of Notebook collaborative learning software were noted as strong product elements.  Judges also noted features that made the SMART Board interactive whiteboard unique in its category, such as touch capability so users can write, drag and drop files, browse the Web and save files using their fingers.  Another difference was the pens.  Competitive products require electromagnetic pens which need regular battery replacement.  SMART's Whisper-tip™ pens do not require batteries.  We love hearing from our customers and recent feedback has been that the Notebook software is helpful for illustrating ideas and enhancing discussions through its embedded Gallery, which houses thousands of digital resources.

The SMART Board 600 series interactive whiteboard lets you do more than ever before.  Combining the same great features that people love with new expandability options, it's limited only by your imagination.



SMART Makes Five New Product Announcements.

SMART Technologies announced two new interactive whiteboards, new interactive pen displays, an upgrade to Bridgit conferencing software and GoWire, an auto-launch cable.

The new interactive whiteboards are the SMART Board 600i and 690.  The 600i combines the SMART whiteboard with a new Unifi projector with built-in audio.  The projector mounts on the wall above the whiteboard so it stays out of the way of the presenter.  It has Vikuiti Super Close Projection technology with XGA resolution so it gives a nice short throw distance.  The 690 is the largest screen size available from SMART, with a 94-inch surface and 16:9 aspect ratio.

The Sympodium UD350 and ID370 interactive pen displays lets a presenter touch the battery-free tethered pen to the LCD screen to launch and control applications on a SMART interactive whiteboard.  The new models have a bezel-less writing surface, two high-speed USB hubs and the latest SMART Board software.  The ID350 has a 15-inch display and the ID370 a 17-inch displays.

SMART's Bridgit 3.1 conferencing software now lets Mac users participate in web conferences, and the GoWire auto-launch cable lets users get full access to SMART Board software without having to install the software on the computer.  The GoWire is a software-enabled, USB cable that automatically launches the software upon connection to a computer.

SMART Introduces 32-Inch Interactive Overlay

SMART Technologies introduced a new overlay in its Actalyst interactive digital signage product line (the line has sizes up to 65 inches).  The new 32-inch overlay lets you add interactive functionality to flat panels and can be used in portrait or landscape, and SMART says it supports panels from NEC, Samsung, LG, Panasonic and Toshiba, with others to follow.

The Actalyst interactive digital signage line used with a flat-panel display is most often used as a way for people to find information in public places.  They walk up to the product and use a finger to navigate multimedia content.  SMART targets retail stores, office buildings, real-estate developments, museums, hotels and shopping malls.  They use SMART's DViT technology which uses cameras embedded in the overlay rather than pressure technology.
