Touch Recognition

Enable Touch Recognition on your Smart Board, so that you do not have to pick up an eraser to erase after writing.  You will simply be able to use the palm of your hand or fist to erase what you have written, even if you have a pen in your hand.
  • Click on the Blue Smart Notebook Icon with the white circle at the bottom of your screen.
  • Select the Control Panel.
  • Now, click on "Smart Hardware Settings."
  • Click on the blue down arrow and select "Mouse and Gesture Settings."
  • Make sure that you check the box next to "Enable Touch Recognition." You will see other boxes checked as well, just leave them as they are.  Then, click on Apply and then OK.  
If you want to fine tune this setting, click the "Touch Recognition Settings" Button and it will allow you to do so. 
 

 

Set the orienting of your Smart Board to a finer setting.
  • Click on the Blue Smart Notebook Icon with the white circle at the bottom of your screen.
  • Select the Control Panel.
  • Now, click on "Smart Hardware Settings."
  • Click on the blue down arrow and select "Orientation/Alignment Settings."
  • Select "Fine (20 points)" and click on Apply, then OK.
 Now, when you orient your board, you will have 20 plus signs to click in the exact center of to fine tune it.
 
 
Copy a PDF File or Document from a CScope lesson using the capture tool in Adobe Reader. 
  • Log into CScope and choose an exemplar lesson to view.  While viewing the document, notice the tools that you have available in the tool bar at the top of the screen.  You should see a camera icon just left of the center, next to the zoom tool magnifying glass.  (If you don't see a camera, email Teresa Richard and she can tell you how to get it.)  
  • Navigate to the page that you would like a copy of in your Notebook Software.  Click on the camera icon and then outline the area that you would like to copy.  The beauty of this is that the camera will allow you to scroll down as far as you need to in the document to take a picture.  
  • Then, open your Notebook Software and paste it into the page.  Now, you are ready to use it on the Smart Board.
 
Helpful Tip When Erasing Writing
  • To erase the board all at one time, simply pick up the eraser (or if you are using Touch Recognition use your palm) and then make one circle with it around the writing.  Then, tap the board in the center of the circle you made.  All of the writing within the circle you drew with the eraser will disappear. 
GREAT NEWS!!  If you use Power Points, you can import them into Smart Notebook Software!!!
  • All you have to do is open Smart Notebook Software, then click on File and then Import.  A box will pop up and you can select a Power Point and click open.  It will then save the power point as slides in the Notebook software.  It will not save the animation or anything like that, but it will convert the slides to notebook slides.
