Bitsboard Cheat Sheet

Step 1: Download the new edition of Bitsboard to your tablet. (follow the link above)

Step 2: Open Bitsboard.

Step 3: Read the brief guide that pops up.

Step 4: After your read the guide, you'll have the option of logging in with Facebook, creating a new account with e-mail or skipping this step and opening Bitsboard with no log in information required. I'd recommend setting up an account for yourself, as this will allow you to share your boards in the Bitsboard catalog and access your saved boards from any mobile device. If you don't set up an account, you will not be able to share your boards and you will only be able to access your boards on the specific iPad you used to create the boards.

Step 4: Bitsboard includes some sample boards on your main page as a default. (Actions, Emotions, Exotic Animals etc.) You can peruse them to get a sense of what other people are doing with Bitsboard or you can hit the blue button in the upper right hand corner of the screen to browse or search the catalog.

Step 5: To create a new board, you simply hit the blue plus sign that says Add Board.

Step 6: You'll see a drop down menu asking you if you want to download from the catalog, import from your saved boards or create a new board. Go ahead and choose create a new board.

Step 7: You will then be prompted to enter a name for your board.

Step 8: Once you've entered a name for your new board, you make a new flashcard by hitting the blue plus sign underneath the place where you entered the board name.

Step 9: The flashcard template will pop up and you will be prompted to add text.

Step 10 :You can record audio for the flashcard by hitting the red circle. Hit the red square when you are done adding your audio.

Step 11: You hit the center of the flashcard (marked add Photo) to add an image to your flashcard. You'll have the option of taking a new photo with the camera on your tablet or choosing an existing photo from your library. For commonly occurring words (like pyramid or see) Bitsboard will also auto-generate some images you can choose from at the top of your flashcard screen once you've entered your text.

Step 12: If you add an image and decide you don't like it, you can delete it by hitting the gray X at the top of the flashcard box.

Step 13: Once you've completed your first flashcard, you tap the screen outside of your flashcard to return to your board main screen. Hit the plus sign to add another flashcard and repeat this process until you've added all the content you want to add to your board.

Step 14: To share your completed board (you have to have an account to access this function), you hit the orange share button at the top of your board. Once you have shared a board, anyone with Bitsboard (no log in required) can download the board you created on to their device.

Step 15: Hit the blue house button in the left hand corner of the screen to return to your home screen at any time.

Step 16: If you don't want to create a new board, you can hit the blue catalog button in the upper left hand corner of the home screen. Once there, you can use the search function in the upper right hand corner to search for boards by title/content area, or you can browse boards by category.

Step 17: If you find a board in the catalog you want to work with, you simply tap on the blue cloud button next to the board to download it on to your home screen.

Step 18: Return to your home screen by hitting the blue house button again. Once you have chosen a board you want to work with, tap on the board. You will now be prompted to choose one of seven different practice modes (flashcards, photo touch, true or false, match up, pop quiz, reader and word builder.) Choose the mode that best meets your instructional needs.
