Be Ready When the First Bell Rings: Lessons, Training, and Resources for the Year Ahead

Posted by Travis Rink on Thu, Aug 11, 2016


School is already back in session for many teachers, but some of us are still savoring the last weeks of warm weather, sleeping in, and grilling out. We all have our back-to-school lists close at hand, however: folders that need to be labeled, tech that must be tested, and lesson plans to get ready for the year ahead.

During this time of prep and anticipation, it’s good to find new ideas and inspiration. To give you an assist, we’ve pulled together a list of great content, training sessions for the month ahead, and other on-demand resources.

Mimio guides and reference cards provide excellent information to help you start using your MimioClassroom™ products immediately. These resources are readily available to view, download, and print as needed.

Each short video provides detailed information on a specific topic. From object cloning to adding content to your lessons, these tutorials will get you up and running quickly. If you have five minutes and need a refresher or want to learn something new, take a look!

Quick Learn Recordings

Just like our LIVE Quick Learn sessions, but available 24/7/365. All of the same great information – when it suits your schedule. Complete a short assessment at the end of each session to receive your Certificate of Completion.
