When a teacher uses their MimioVote Assessment System in the classroom, student performance data is automatically saved within their MmioStudio Gradebook. This video explains how to make the most of that valuable data by explaining how to generate a variety of reports. This video explains how teachers can print whole class and individual student data reports using MimioStudio Gradebook.

I have updated my software to the latest version. Now, when I use the Mimio toolbar there is no camera icon for the screen clipping tool. I can access it from the drop down menu under INSERT in the notebook but has it been taken out of the toolbar?? It makes it hard to screen clip outside of the notebook if I'd just have the toolbar open on my desktop.
You are so right! It would be hard to screen clip outside the notebook if access to this valuable tool was taken off the toolbar. It isn't gone, just a part of another icon on the toolbar. The Insert icon. This is the icon to the right of the new and improved look of the eraser tool! The screen clipping tool now has a few new features for a more, accurate clipping. You can do the original rectangular clip but now have the choice of an oval, whole page or shape specific clip as well. Enjoy using these new features for creating more engaging lessons.

Do you know of some ways to pair eBooks with my Mimio?
This is a great question because eBooks are becoming a very accessible and cost effective way to deliver traditional textbooks and literature that was only available in print form. Many eBooks can be downloaded into a pdf format which allows you to insert them into notebook pages. Once inserted here's a list of just a few suggestions of what you can do:
1. Highlight text for discussion or analyzing
2. Select specific words for vocabulary development/ definitions
3. Locate passages which answer/support essential ideas or themes of the story.
4. Read aloud passages for gaining fluency and comprehension
5. Insert graphic organizer pages for character traits and/or comparisons, plot development, 5 W’s, and related skills.
6. Insert notebook pages where pictures can be sketched to explain a passage.
7. Analyze an author’s style by citing examples.
8. Make predictions by highlighting instances of foreshadowing.
9. Record lesson and class comments for those who were absent or need to use as a study guide for future assessments.
10. Develop/practice research and note-taking skills.
11. Insert video clips, found on the Internet, to bring clarification to complex passages.
12. Analyze and/or interpret charts, graphs, and tables.
Even if an eBook can’t be inserted, project it outside the notebook and develop your lesson incorporating Mimio tools and applications like screen annotation and even quick vote. Don't forget that good teaching practices infusing student centered objectives and engagement are still the focus, so whatever your lesson ideas are, Mimio makes it a better way to learn. As always, we encourage you to check out the other posts on Ask a Master for many more tips and suggestions.
