    Mr. Hollis-
    I enjoy looking through your e-mails that you send me, and I currently received a smartboard for my classroom. I just have a quick question. I tried the 30 day free trial for the notebook, and now it’s expired…can you tell me how much it costs for the notebook?? Thank you so much!!

      Hi Makayla,

      You do not need to purchase Notebook if your school has a SMART Board. All you need is one of the serial numbers from the SB and you can get a Product Key to use the Notebook software. Here’s a link to request a product key: http://smarttech.com/Product+Registration

      Good luck!


  2. I don’t have a smart board – I have SMART clickers. Can these activities be used with clickers? If so, how?
