MimioTeach and the MimioPad

Hi Jyllian-
I love my MimioPad! Speaking from my own experience, I simply take the USB receiver on the underside of the MimioPad and put that into one of the ports on my computer. Once this is done, I make sure my pad is turned on and then I'm ready to go. Keep in mind that the 2 devices can be used in conjunction with one another but not simultaneously (either the MimioTeach stylus can be used with the notebook content or the MimioPad pen). The MimioPad allows me (or anyone else that I might pass it off to) to control the actions of the board without having to be up at the board. I have had kids who wanted to do whatever the activity or problem was from their seat using the Pad, while others walk up to the board and use the MimioTeach stylus. There are also times when we are brainstorming and just pass the MimioPad around the room adding to a spontaneous list we're creating. Other times we use it to solve math problems. The possibilities are only limited by your creativity and imagination. The MimioPad's technology innately allows the teacher to manage their classroom more effectively, from delivering content to student engagement, allowing for optimal learning experiences. Should you be experiencing any technical difficulties with the MimioPad, you might contact the tecnical support team at this link: http://mimio.dymo.com/en-US/Support/Technical-Support.aspx I hope some of this was a help. Once you get up and going with the MimioPad, I know that you'll enjoy yours as much as I have enjoyed mine. It's become a valuable (and easily integrated) technology tool addition to my cadre of Mimio tools in my classroom!

Mimio Pad

I am going to pass your information on long to the classrooms at our school that have pads. (we purchased the pad and teach together and then separated them as a way to save money) The teachers that have the pad seem not to use it as much as the teachers with the teach. In addition to what is above does anyone have any other ideas to get them using it more?????

Mimio Pad

Thank you so much for the clarity when using the mimio Pad. I was not comfortable with it when we ended the school year, but with your direction, I am ready to get started with it from the beginning of the new school year. Yeah!

Thank you Tracy. We're

Thank you Tracy. We're rolling out quite a few in our school district and I'm trying to get up to speed very fast.

Could you tell me what the rocker button on the mimio pad is for?
And why you would use hover on the mimio teach (2nd button) My teachers tend to want to use them for left and right click.

Thanks

Jyllian, there are three

Jyllian, there are three buttons on face of the mimio pad. The power button, and the the other two are for advancing slides in your mimio studio file or powerpoint, think of them as forward or backward arrows in your ink (notebook) or ppt (powepoint) files. Those two advancing buttons are found on the top right corner of the pad, just above a circular indent in the pad. That indent is also really cool because you can put the tip of the stylus in there and control the volume of your computer that the pad is connected to. Make clockwise circles to turn the volume up and counterclockwise to turn the volume down.
The hover function on the mimio pad is kind of useless as it already does that when you move the pen. The buttons on the stylus (A and B)are matched up to the settings in mimio studio notebook for the A and B buttons on the Teach or Xi bar pen. Whatever you have programmed those buttons to do the pad pen should emulate. The hover is useful on the stylus for the Teach or Xi bar when you want to point something out and not have your hand block the projected area with your shadow. On the pad, not so useful.

Volume control

John, I did not know about the volume control. That would be quite handy especially if you launch a sound bite or video clip from the pad and the volume needs adjusting quickly! Great details.
