The MimioTeach Bar & Stylus
Toolbar Part 1

This video shows some of the basic functions of the toolbar.

Toolbar Part 2
- Line and Shape Tool
- Color Picker
Use text boxes to type instructions or type note on Mimio. Make all kinds of shapes (great for math or pattern activities) and lines (point or make connections on the screen). Know how to change the color of the shape or outlines.
Toolbar Part 3
Briefly learn how to use the gallery applications, right click and screen annotations using the toolbar.
- Reveal, Spotlight, Text, Calculator Classroom Manager
- Right click
- Screen Annotations
From the launch button (second button on the bar) on the bottom of your teach bar, you can access screen annotation, quick vote, reveal spotlight etc…
The text editor allows you to adjust the font, style, alignment, and size of text in a textbox.
Add to textboxes without using your physical keyboard. Bring a virtual keyboard onto the screen or use a writing pad to write.
Spotlight and Reveal Applications
Use the spotlight to focus attention on important parts of a lesson. Use reveals to uncover answers or cover just certain parts of the screen.
Screen Annotation (Well worth your time!)
Screen annotations can be used to take a pictures of whatever is on your screen (Word Document, Internet page, etc) and then annotate with the pen, highlighter, text tool, etc).
With a screen clipping, you can take an image from any digital resource, and put it onto your notebook page and use as a clip art.
See how to convert handwritten notes to editable text.
Use Shape Recognition to do a quick sketch of a shape, then have it turn into a perfect hexagon, ellipse, or star.
