A Search Engine for SMART Notebook Files

Google Custom Search allows anyone to create his or her own search engine. The benefit of this is that you can create a very subject specific search environment. One such use that I found through The Whiteboard Blog is a SMART Notebook search engine. As you would expect from the name, the SMART Notebook search engine is designed to help you find resources designed for teaching with SMARTBoards.

You can access the search engine here or try it out as embedded below.

Applications for Education
Even though interactive whiteboards seems to be losing the popularity they enjoyed a few years ago, there are still in classrooms all over the world. To get the most out of that investment it's important to help teachers locate resources that can help them make the best use of interactive whiteboards. The SMART Notebook search engine could help teachers find resources to include in their IWB lessons.

SMART Notebook Resources from Scholastic

In my previous post I highlighted the free resources available through the MimioConnect community. If you're a SMARTBoard user you may be interested in visiting Scholastic's collection of SMART Notebook resources. The collection is arranged according to subject area. The collection isn't terribly large, but it could be a good source of ideas for developing your own lessons. For a more extensive collection of SMART Notebook resources head over to the SMART Exchange.
