SMART inking, exchange, maths tools, 3D tools and response icons. Students using interactive board in classroom. Inspired Collaboration SMART

Not just a digital whiteboard

The simplest and most used aspect of an interactive display is inking, but that should only be the beginning of your interactive journey. Inking is simply writing and drawing on a digital canvas or over other applications on the screen, but this basic communication can be enhanced in many interactive ways with SMART Notebook.

SMART Notebook allows you to add images, videos, audio, 3D models, documents, screen caps and more to your canvas. SMART Notebook will recognise your inputs and interpret them appropriately, from handwriting recognition to mathematical equations and geometric shapes. SMART Notebook also includes tools for real-time student responses via any web enabled device which helps you keep your class engaged and enables immediate assessment of understanding levels. Fun classroom activities and games can be built in less than 5 minutes. Concept mapping tools help you stimulate ideas and discussion as well as reinforcing topics learned.

Your interactive canvas can be zoomed in, out, panned, saved for later, exported as an image, cleared, partially cleared, tagged with useful information, used as a working template and undone through multiple steps if you ever need to go back.
