UNIT I: Annotations/Web Browsing
Unit 1: Annotations/Web Browsing
Why is this important?
Desktop annotations are one of the most important skills to have when it comes to using SMART Notebook. This skill allows the user to write on websites, word processing files, pictures, etc. For example, if you were reading a passage together as a class from a website, and you wanted to highlight all of the times the word “the” appeared, you could do just that. Let’s take a look at this important skill and be sure that we know how to execute it properly.
1) After opening SMART Notebook, find the “Insert” tab and scroll down to “Internet Browser.”
2) An image will appear in the middle of the screen that says “Browse to any webpage within SMART Notebook collaborative learning software.” If you scroll down on this image, you will see a small keyboard with a web address bar next to it.
3) Here, you can enter any website you wish and load it into your SMART Notebook page. You can write on anything that you put up!
Note to the Learner: Nothing is perfect, and there will always be limitations, no matter what. It’s worth mentioning that if you change the webpage, your annotations will remain. If you want to save your work, you will have save the file as is in order for it to remain.
