SMART Notebook Dual Page Display

UntitledHave you used the Dual Page Display function in your SMART Notebook software? The Dual Page Display is not the same as the new SMART Dual Touch boards. Dual Display is a way to show two pages in your Notebook file at one time. I think Dual Page Display is one of the under utilized functions in SMART Notebook.

This is a video I created to show you how to use Dual Page Display.

Although this video showcased uses in social studies, you can use Dual Page Display across the curriculum. For example, in a Special Education or elementary classes, Dual Page Display can be used to move the student from one task to another. As the student finishes a task, he or she can move his or her icon to the next step on the next page in the Notebook file. Math classes display one page as a word problem and the second page as clean workspace to figure the problem. Language Arts classes can showcase an excerpt of a novel, poetry, or reading on one side then analyze the excerpt on the second page.

Have you used Dual Page Display? I would love to hear some of the ways you use it in your class.

  1. Hi MaryAnn,

    I'm on the opposite side of the fence on this one. A much better solution for me is to have multiple sessions of Notebook running simultaneously. This is mainly due to how small the page gets in entire page view.

    Drag and drop works with two files and you can re-size either window to make it bigger. In the 2nd example you provided, it may also be nice to have two separate notebook files. The 2nd file would contain the notes and the 1st file would contain the original information.

    I've also been playing around with two Notebook sessions when using the transparent notebook feature. It's pretty cool what you can do.

    By the way, you have a great speaking voice.




  2. Thanks for the compliment. I don't like how the pages change size/shape but I like the function within one Notebook file. I like your idea of using two files with the transparent Notebook feature. I will have to check it out.
