SMART Notebook 17 is now part of what is called SMART Learning Suite. The two most popular features include:
SMART Lab- game-based activities that you can create in less than 5 minutes and students complete on their devices
SMART amp- an online platform for group projects; also used in flipped classroom and blended learning environments
You may have realized that Notebook 17 does not have the same random word chooser as Notebook 11.4. Teachers and students liked this feature, as it randomly selected a student's name as they were engaging in an activity.
Have you tried out the new SMART lab activities in Notebook 17 yet? They're a fun and quick way to practice a skill, get feedback from your students, check for understanding, etc.
For those of you wondering about some of your old Smart Notebook files working in Notebook 17, for the most part they will transfer without any issues. However, if any of the pages in the file contained flash objects, they'll either convert to a Smart Lab activity or they won't.
