How would I search for content created by a specific member?


You are wondering how to search for content created by a specific member which is very easy to do! If you select “Members” from the menu bar on the MimioConnect home page and then scroll down about halfway to the bottom and you should see “Search Members” on the right hand side. Simply search for the user you are looking for and once you find them click on their name. On the right hand side you should see a “Members Profile” box with a green border. Click on “Lesson Plans and Activities” and you will find all lessons created by that user.

Using eBooks with MimioStudio

Tracy Tishion's picture

Do you know of some ways to pair eBooks with my Mimio?


This is a great question because eBooks are becoming a very accessible and cost effective way to deliver traditional textbooks and literature that was only available in print form. Many eBooks can be downloaded into a pdf format which allows you to insert them into notebook pages. Once inserted here's a list of just a few suggestions of what you can do:
1. Highlight text for discussion or analyzing
2. Select specific words for vocabulary development/ definitions
3. Locate passages which answer/support essential ideas or themes of the story.
4. Read aloud passages for gaining fluency and comprehension
5. Insert graphic organizer pages for character traits and/or comparisons, plot development, 5 W’s, and related skills.
6. Insert notebook pages where pictures can be sketched to explain a passage.
7. Analyze an author’s style by citing examples.
8. Make predictions by highlighting instances of foreshadowing.
9. Record lesson and class comments for those who were absent or need to use as a study guide for future assessments.
10. Develop/practice research and note-taking skills.
11. Insert video clips, found on the Internet, to bring clarification to complex passages.
12. Analyze and/or interpret charts, graphs, and tables.
Even if an eBook can’t be inserted, project it outside the notebook and develop your lesson incorporating Mimio tools and applications like screen annotation and even quick vote. Don't forget that good teaching practices infusing student centered objectives and engagement are still the focus, so whatever your lesson ideas are, Mimio makes it a better way to learn. As always, we encourage you to check out the other posts on Ask a Master for many more tips and suggestions.
