SM ARTBOARD FUNDAMENTALS
Getting Started with the SMART Board
The SMART Board is an interactive whiteboard that turns a computer and projector into a powerful tool for
teaching, collaborating, and presenting. Use the SMART Board to interact, create, focus, capture, and
simplify.
STARTING
THE
SMART BOARD
With the SMART Board and projector connected to the computer, turn on
the projector and then the computer.
The SMART Board draws power from the computer and will automatically
become active. The SMART Board has power when the Ready Light on the
right side of the SMART Pen Tray turns a steady green.
SMART TOOLS MENU
The SMART Tools menu provides quick access to the functions that help you SMART SETTINGS
operate the SMART Board more effectively. To access SMART Tools, click
the SMART Board icon in the Windows Notification Area at the bottom right of your screen. The SMART
Tools menu will appear. On the Mac, control-click the Board Tools icon on the doc.
CONTROL PANEL)
In the SMART Settings, you can configure a variety of hardware and software
options for the SMART interactive whiteboard. We will focus on the following:
•
•
Orient/Align the SMART Board
Pen and Button Settings including Calligraphic pen
ORIENTING
THE
MAC SMART SETTINGS
SMART BOARD
In order to provide an accurate and appropriate response to touch, the SMART Board will need to be
orientated. This process allows the SMART Board Software to know exactly where the projected image
from the computer is located on the SMART Board surface. There are many ways to orient the board. The
easiest way is to,
1. Click the question (?) key, on the SMART Board Pen Tray.
2. Click the Orient/Align button.
3. Press your forefinger on the yellow center of each red cross in the
order specified.
Note: If the SMART Board or projector that is bumped or moved may need to be reorientated. A permanently mounted SMART board and projector require fewer
orientations.

to erase the annotations on the SMART Board.
THE SMART BOARD PEN TRAY
Write over any computer image by picking up one of the four colored pens from the Pen Tray. To write in
a different color, place the pen back in its slot and select another.

SMART Board Tools
The SMART Notebook toolbar is divided into groups of buttons to make Notebook easier to work with.
The groups are Actions, Tools and Properties.

Actions include common operations like page navigation, add and delete a page, and save or open a file.
However, actions also include things like inserting a table, screen capture, deleting objects, etc….

One of the most important tools is the black Select arrow. Anytime you want to work with an object
on a page, first click the Select arrow and then select (click on) the object you want to work with.
Properties allow you to change the look of objects that you create with the tools. Clicking a tool
automatically shows the corresponding property options for that tool. Additional property options may
be available by clicking the properties tab.
By default, the toolbar appears at the top of the Notebook page. When you are working with young
students, it may be more convenient to move the toolbar to the bottom of the page. To do this, click the
double-ended, vertical arrow on the far right of the toolbar.

APPENDIX A
Working with SMART Response
Having a SMART Response system connected to your SMART Board allows you to tally student responses,
