Extension Cords

Extension cords were put in inter-school mail today for those of you who requested one. If you did not send me an email, but still need an extension cord for your table, please let me know. I need to order more, but will get them to you after the winter break.

SMART Table PLC

Remember, our next SMART Table PLC is coming up on January 22. Please come with something you have created - even if it only has 1 application type in your activity. I will provide a couple more webinar sessions between January 5-16 on creating content using the Multiple Choice, Hot Spots, Hot Spaces, and Paint applications. Watch for a separate email advertising those sessions. You can also find fabulous YouTube clips on creating content for all the applications on the SMART Table Friends YouTube channel.

New SMART Table Teachers?

If you have teachers in your building that have started using the SMART Table, please let me know who they are. I will add them to my list and make sure they get my monthly newsletters and emails.

Great SMART Table ideas!

Thank you to the Larchmont team for the great training we had last week. I heard the next day that the counselor at Larchmont was so impressed with the table use, that she wants to utilize it for group sessions! Love the idea :) Any more creative ways you are using the table out there? Let us know. Use the discussion board on my SMART Table website to give us your ideas, and see what others have posted.
