SMART Notebook 11 has just been released and is available for download here: http://www.smarttech.com/us/Support/Browse+Support/Download+Software/Software/SMART+ Notebook+collaborative+learning+software/SMART+Notebook+software/SMART+ Notebook+11+Software+for+Mac
This version allows for greater flexibility, easier lesson building functions, and it’s just plain more fun.
-This version allows for websites to be embedded in your software. You can then drag and drop images from the web onto a different part of the Notebook software and manipulate it. The live pages can be opened directly from the Notebook software, no more having to cut and paste portions of a webpage.
-When you select an object, the toolbar changes to offer only the tools needed for the object.
Easier lesson building:
-Record sounds directly into lesson.
-Adjust the size of an image to fit into a shape.
-Shake objects to group and ungroup them.
Fun (I know we don’t use this for fun, but it doesn’t hurt to mention it):
-Build your own creative pen using any image you choose.
-Create authentic crayon drawings
