SMART Board Add-Ons
Making the most of your SMART Board Software
The Activity Builder is not really new. It was introduced with the Notebook 11 that is currently installed on all computers in the districts. This add-on allows you to create simple or not so simple interactive sorting activities. The Activity Builder can be found on the "Add-Ons" Tab (Puzzle Piece Tab). Once selected the 4 steps for creating activities appear in the task pane.
Helpful Tip: Lay out your page complete with "containers" and objects/text to be sorted prior to building the activity in the widget.
How to Build an Activity
- Select the object you want to be the activity object, and then click Edit. Diagonal lines appear on the activity object.
- In the Objects tab, drag objects to the appropriate areas to accept or reject them.
- In the Settings tab, set how objects behave when accepted or rejected.
- Click Done
You can now interact with the activity.
