Connecting student devices to the SMART Whiteboard
After students have connected to the SMART Whiteboard, they can follow along with a copy of the lesson you're delivering, complete activities, and participate in games and assessments. There are two ways students can connect to the whiteboard:
QR code: Students scan the QR code with their device.
After using one of these methods, students can either connect as a guest or sign in using their school email address.
When students sign in, their screen names and a list of the lessons they have previously connected to are saved, enabling them to connect more quickly in the future.
If this is the first time a student has signed in, learn how help them create a SMART Account using their school email.
