Taking collaboration to new heights
Teachers can increase the opportunities for classroom collaboration, thanks to the multitouch capabilities of the new 800 series. Two people can use their fingers or a pen to write, draw and interact with content on the surface of the SMART Board interactive whiteboard. There are no special tools or menus required – students can simply walk up to the SMART Board interactive whiteboard and immediately begin working together.
Expanding the boundaries of learning
With freestyle interaction, two students can work together anywhere on the surface without being restricted to a defined space or required to use a specific tool. And each student can perform different actions at the same time. For example, one student can move objects around whilst the other writes in digital ink.
Putting the world at their fingertips
Using touch gestures*, students can interact with lesson content in new and exciting ways, which gives them a deeper, more interactive learning experience. Students can use simple, intuitive gestures, such as toss, rotate and zoom, or use the navigational gestures available with multitouch operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows 7 or Mac Snow Leopard.
Making it easy to interact
The object awareness feature makes using the 800 series a completely intuitive experience – the technology is virtually invisible. You can switch seamlessly from writing with a pen, erasing with the palm of your hand and moving objects with your finger. There's no need to press buttons, access on-screen menus or replace tools in the Pen Tray.
Access to a rich collection of learning resources
Teachers can access free, ready-to-use educational resources, including thousands of standards-correlated SMART Notebook lesson activities, anytime on the SMART Exchange website. With the release of SMART Notebook 10.7 software, added functionality will become available for SMART Notebook lesson activities, however material created using version 10.6 will also be enhanced by the new features of the 800 series.
