Getting the most out of your summer install

So, you'll come back to the classroom to see a shiny new screen! It can be daunting dealing with new technology, but here are our top tips to get the most from your summer install.  

Get the software 

First off, we strongly, strongly recommend that you create accounts for LYNX Whiteboard and Cleverstore. Once you have your accounts you can create content, import your old interactive whiteboard files, download apps and more. There is so much content available to you, free of charge, and you can access it either on your Clevertouch interactive display, or on your laptop or mobile device.  

Here’s where you need to go to create your accounts:

The benefits of training 

Although you can use the screens without training, to get the most from them training sessions are really beneficial.  

The best type of training is face-to-face, and we can offer full day sessions, twilight sessions at the end of the school day, or 1 hour sessions throughout the day. You can book training sessions here (training costs may apply). 

We understand that not all schools book training sessions, but don’t worry, we have plenty of other resources to help you get started. 

Watch tutorial videos! We’ve got hundreds, all with handy tips from our teachers-turned-tech-ambassadors! You can view them here

Take a look at the Getting Started Guide. It will take you through step-by-step instructions of the basics to more advanced solutions.

Join the Clevertouch Academy! With online guides and courses, there’s lots to learn here, and you can gain CTS points.  


Start a Tech Ambassadors Club  

Kids love working with technology and learning new ways to use it. 

A number of schools that we’ve worked with have created Tech Ambassador Clubs. Groups of students are given access to a Clevertouch screen during lunch or after school, and they have time to try things out and learn useful ways to use the technology. They then share this knowledge with teachers.  


Start to collaborate 

Download Clevershare to your laptop, phone or tablet. You’ll find new ways to use your mobile devices, such as using it as a document camera to show students’ work, or to zoom in on experiments so that the whole class can see.  

If your class has access to iPads, tablets or phones, they can also download the app and share work collaboratively.  


Unleash the full potential! 

It’s easy to fall into the habit of using an interactive display as “just a whiteboard”, but there are so many features that can enrich your lessons and help to better engage students.  

If you can find just 5 minutes a day to dedicate to a new app or feature, you’ll be a pro by the end of your first month!
