How can I use the "animation" feature in my MimioStudio Notebook?


The MimioStudio Notebook animation feature can help teachers create truly dynamic and powerful lessons! The animation feature can bring impressive visual effects to your content. The MimioStudio Notebook animation feature can also be used to teach students course content in an interactive way.

This short video demonstrates how to use the animation feature within MimioStudio Notebook. The video also illustrates ways in which to use the MimioStudio animation feature in the classroom for educational purposes.

Screen Annotation

How do you annotate on top of a word document?


Annotating a file is so easy! First, open up the File you wish to annotate (I believe you are using a Word Document). Next, position everything on the screen the way you would like (once you freeze the screen you are unable to zoom, scroll down etc.) Now, press on the Screen Annotation on your Toolbar (the last button, lower right hand corner). Your screen will now freeze and you are able to annotate everything using the various tools on your Toolbar. Once you have completed your annotations simply press ESC on your keyboard or right click and select “CLOSE.” You will find a copy of your newly annotated page in your Gallery inside the Screen Annotations folder.

John F. Kennedy Resources

With the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination coming up next week, does MimioConnect have any lessons to help me teach my students about Kennedy's presidency?

The Kennedy assassination was one of the most shocking and significant events in recent U.S. History. However, today's students are largely unaware of the events surrounding President Kennedy. As the 50th anniversary of that sad day approaches, it is an excellent time to teach students about JFK's presidency.

MimioConnect offers several resources that you will find useful when teaching your students about President Kennedy.

You might want to start with To the Best of His Ability: John F. Kennedy

This interactive lesson engages students in the historical events that took place during the presidency of John F. Kennedy. Students must use high level thinking skills to evaluate decisions made by President Kennedy during his time in office. I have found that this lesson works great with Mimio Mobile and MimioVote!

This short video demonstrates how this lesson was created!
