I'd like to create some Valentine's Day lessons that have heart shaped reveals. Are there any heart-shaped reveals in the Mimio gallery?
Thank you for such a creative question. This is something that I'm sure many of our community members could benefit from as they design their Valentine's lessons too! There is a gallery of fun reveals for a variety of holidays located at this link: http://www.mimioconnect.com/content/lesson/fun_picture_reveals. Just download the gallery file into your own. Enjoy exploring the many possibilities and happy creating!
When I download an activity on my home computer how do I find/retrieve it once at school ?(I am signed in as a member)
Thank you for your recent submission to Ask a Master. We are so glad to have you as part of our wonderful online community of educators! You are wondering how to access an activity you have downloaded from MimioConnect on a different computer. When you download a file from MimioConnect it will only save and open on the computer that you are on at the time. I would suggest saving your downloads to a flash drive or external hard drive in order to transfer to your school computer. You can also tag the file as one of your favorites on MimioConnect and then when you get to your school computer you can open and download it there. To do this simply click on the “Add to favorites” blue link underneath the lesson plan or activity. When you log in at school you will be able to easily find this file by going to “View Profile” (top right of page under your username/picture) and then to “Favorites.” I hope you have found this helpful and please let me know if there is anything else you may need as we are always here to help. Have a great evening!
How can I create a table in the Mimio notebook? Can an Excel table be interactive using Mimio?
Thank you for such a versatile question! There are a number of tables available for your use that can be found in the gallery. All you need to do is type the word "table" in the search box when you open up your gallery. Tables can also be easily made with the use of the shapes and line tools from your Mimio toolbar. To make sure that your lines are equally spaced in the table, you can utilize the "grid" feature which can be accessed from the "View" drop down menu in the notebook. When this feature is activated, you have control of how far apart you'd like the lines to be as well as if you'd like objects to be "snapped into place" once they are placed inside the created boxes. As for Excel tables, they can be imported in but they will lose their interactivity. To keep them active and be able to manipulate them, open them up outside of the notebook and just use your Mimio stylus/pen to input data or type text. For more suggestions and tips on how to maximize your lesson creation and development, check out the "Ask a Master" section of MimioConnect. Happy creating!
