Question:

I have viewed a number of the Mimio pre-recorded webinars and have found them to be extremely informative. I would like to use them as part of my own professional development for technology. Is there a way to obtain a certificate for continuing education units after watching/participating in these recordings?

Answer:

Absolutely and you are so right. The Mimio Webinar series of live events and recordings are very informative and packed with lots of great suggestions, examples, and tips to enhance your Mimio experience in the classroom. Each live webinar or the pre-recorded webinars offer continuing education units via a certificate of completion once the webinar has been watched (by live participation or watching a recording). To obtain one for the pre-recorded webinars, you'll receive a link at the end of the viewing experience to click on in the chat box, take an assessment, submit it, and then a link will be emailed to you for the certificate. To obtain a complete listing of webinars, just follow this link: http://www.mimio.com/en-NA/Events/Tradeshows-Events.aspx. As always, if you get the chance, check out our Ask a Master section for additional tips, trick. and suggestions!

Question:

I am teaching a math class this year. I have seen on some lessons various types of graphing paper. Where can I find them to download into my lessons? Does Mimio have some?

Answer:

Absolutely! Once the software has been downloaded, you need to go to your mimio notebook and open up the gallery. The gallery has numerous types of graphing templates which can be double-clicked or dragged into a notebook page. The templates can be found in the "Mathematics" folder then look at its sub folders. One folder should say "graphs." When this folder is opened, click on templates and scroll down through the list of choices. Find what you're looking for and add it to you lesson. Happy creating and as usual if you get the chance peruse other tips and suggestions in the Ask a Master section of MimioConnect. Have a great school year!

Answer:

MimioStudio Notebook makes it possible for you to use mathematical symbols in your lessons. One option is to create a file within your Gallery to hold commonly used words and symbols. To do this you can screen clip these items directly from a Word Document and add them into your Gallery. Another option you may want to try is to use the ALT key codes on your keyboard when entering text into a text box in MimioStudio Notebook. Click here for a list of common keyboard shortcuts that might help you.
