Dive In Faculty Technology Workshop

Swim Smart - SMART Products and Office 2013

Come jump into the shallow end of the pool and paddle toward the deep end where we'll combine the simplicity of a whiteboard with the power of a computer. Discover and experience how the SMART Board interactive whiteboard lets you deliver dynamic lessons, write notes in digital ink, save your work and much more -- all with the simple touch of a 'flipper'.

Office 2013 is coming to a computer cluster near you this fall -- you'll also get a quick overview of what lies ahead in the new versions of your old favorites - PowerPoint, Word, and Excel. Be prepared to face the first lecture without fear!
