SMART Notebook 16.2 Update



Birdville ISD recently purchased an upgrade to the Notebook 11.4 software that is currently used on SMART Boards.  Notebook 16.2 looks very similar to the current version of Notebook but adds many new features that will support multiple content areas as well as provide new opportunities for collaboration and formative assessment feedback.  


If you currently have a SMART Board, we are asking that you please update at this time. Directions for updating can be found at the bottom of this message.


Note: Updating to SMART Notebook 16 removes the ability to use the old SMART Clickers.  However, the new software includes SMART Response 2, which works with laptops and iPads instead of clickers.


Some of the new features include:
  • SMART Lab
    • SMART lab gives teachers the means to quickly build game-based activities that amaze and engage students on their devices or front-of-room display.
  • SMART Response 2
    • Create a question set to complement your lesson in just a few minutes. Students answer the questions on their desktop computers, laptops, tablets or phones. Teachers get an instant report (in a pie graph or word cloud), as well as the ability to export those results.
  • SMART Blocks
    • SMART Blocks is an add-on that enables you to perform math activities with your class by writing numbers on the page, and then connecting them to a SMART Block. You can choose from seven different equation types to work with.
  • GeoGebra
    • GeoGebra is an interactive mathematics software for all levels of education. When you insert the GeoGebra widget in SMART Notebook software, you can explore geometry, algebra, tables, graphing, statistics and calculus with your students.
  • SMART amp
    • Create and collaborate on a digital canvas, anywhere, anytime.
