Smart unveils Notebook 10 collaborative software

updated 05:00 am EST, Wed January 9, 2008

Smart Notebook 10

Calgary-based Smart Technologies today unveiled Notebook 10, an update to its collaborative learning software. Version 10 provides users with over 30 new features, 100,000 pieces of educational content, and an updated teachers' resource hub. The new Table Tool allows users to create symmetrical or asymmetrical rows and columns, and customize table properties. Users can draw freehand circles and other geometric shapes with the Shape Pen, which are then recognized and perfected. The company did not release pricing, but it was made aware that users of existing Smart products will receive the update free in the spring.

Page Recording allows the teacher to capture the exact process they used to demonstrate a concept, and can be later played back without menus or applications distracting the user. Notebook 10 also supports object animation, with transitions such as fading in, flying in, or spinning, while the magic pen allows users to spotlight, magnify an image, or write disappearing notes that last for 10 seconds.

The updated teachers' resource hub gives educators access to hundreds of lesson activities, as well as templates to create customized lessons
