The light on my MimioTeach is an amber color and I can't get it to calibrate at all. Any suggestions?
1. Open Mimio Settings in the software. Go to Classroom Devices.
2. You will see the MimioHub listed. (if it’s not there, the MimioHub is not in a USB port)
3. Hold down the status light (button) for about 5-7 seconds. It will start flashing amber and you will see MimioTeach appear on your list of Classroom Devices. It will say “available.”
4.Select the device and click Connect.
5.The Status light on the MimioTeach will turn solid green.

Can my students use MimioStudio to complete a project?
Thank you for such an excellent question Joe! Over the years, I have worked with many teachers who have had students use MimioStudio Notebook software to create various projects. In some of the schools that I have been in, MimioStudio software has been installed in all of the computer labs to give students access to this amazing interactive software. Students can also download the trial version of MimioStudio to use at home by clicking here
The great thing about students using MimioStudio to create a project is that not only can they present information to other students, but they can also make their projects dynamic and interactive. Some of the student lessons that I have seen in the past involve students researching information about a topic, presenting that information in MimioStudio Notebook, and then creating some sort of interactive activity for other students to complete within the project. Students include activities such as Vote template questions, drag and drop activities, and a variety of uses of the Mimio pen and highlighter tool. Each student file can then be combined into a dynamic MimioStudio based jigsaw activity that can be used in the lab, at home, or at the board.
A sample lesson that features this type of student created activity would include the “Deciding Congress”lesson. In this lesson, students use MimioStudio in order to present research about state and local candidates in the recent election. While the election may be over, this lesson demonstrates how students can use MimioStudio to showcase their learning.
With Veterans Day this weekend, you may also want to examine the “Veterans Day”lesson.
This is a lesson that I created last year to teach my students about the importance of Veterans Day. In this lesson after some interactive instruction, students use MimioStudio software to create a “tribute page” to a Veteran they wish to thank for their service. These individual student pages are then combined by the teacher into one .ink file. The file serves as a digital “THANK YOU” for their service.
Mimio would like to thank all of our Veterans for their service!
