Even if you don't have a Mimio board, you can still use their software for free (one of the many reasons why I love Mimio). Click on the picture below to get started.
You do need a key to download the software but I have it and I'd be happy to share. Just comment this post and include your email. The software is totally free and can be used without a Mimio board.
On MimioConnect.com (a place where teachers post their lessons) my username is tvillacis. I have a ton of lessons on there which can instantly be used in your class!
Please comment if you do have a Mimio or any interactive board in your room. I'd love to get some new ideas!
Technology in my classroom? ABSOLUTELY!
Mimio is the core of my teaching. When my school's FCAT scores came in, I was pulled into the Principal's office and asked what was the contributing factor that made my scores so successful. Without hesitation I replied with "Mimio." Interactive boards stimulate students and engage them in the learning process. Rather than being spectators during a lesson, they are active participants who contribute ideas. I don't know what I would do without my interactive board.
Ok, that's enough lecturing for tonight.
I heart my Mimio. :)
Here are some snapshots of 2 of my Mimio lessons.
