Making Mimio Magic

Course Description

Have you wondered how others became wizards with their interactive whiteboards while you remained in the land of muggles?  Or thought to yourself how you could be a lot less Weasley and a whole lot more Hermione?  Don’t be fooled by her fanciful fluency; it wasn’t because of a wave of his magic wand.  Instead, they both spent time at the “Hogwarts” of interactive lesson design and you can too!  In this webinar series teachers will learn how to apply strategies of interactive lesson design to craft MimioStudio experiences your students will love.  You’ll learn how to spellbind your students while learning all of the dark arts for making magic with the MimioBoard, MimioView document camera, and MimioStudio Notebook software.
