Question:

Some of the texts I use in class are in the form of eBooks. Do you know of some ways to pair eBooks with my Mimio?

Answer:

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. Below is a list of a few suggestions of what you can do with the eBook once inserted:
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.

Question:

I have viewed a number of the Mimio pre-recorded webinars and have found them to be extremely informative. I would like to use them as part of my own professional development for technology. Is there a way to obtain a certificate for continuing education units after watching/participating in these recordings?

Answer:

Absolutely and you are so right. The Mimio Webinar series of live events and recordings are very informative and packed with lots of great suggestions, examples, and tips to enhance your Mimio experience in the classroom. Each live webinar or the pre-recorded webinars offer continuing education units via a certificate of completion once the webinar has been watched (by live participation or watching a recording). To obtain one for the pre-recorded webinars, you'll receive a link at the end of the viewing experience to click on in the chat box, take an assessment, submit it, and then a link will be emailed to you for the certificate. To obtain a complete listing of webinars, just follow this link: <a href="http://www.mimio.com/en-NA/Events/Tradeshows-Events.aspx" title="http://www.mimio.com/en-NA/Events/Tradeshows-Events.aspx">http://www.mimio.com/en-NA/Events/Tradeshows-Events.aspx</a>. As always, if you get the chance, check out our Ask a Master section for additional tips, trick. and suggestions!
