NOTE: Turn the projector on in the morning and leave it on unless you are leaving
your classroom for an extended period of time (like going on a field trip).
Using the “No Show” button: Use the “no show” button on the remote when you do not want
the image on the board to be a distraction.
Using the “Freeze” Button:
Press the freeze button one time. This will freeze the image on the screen which will give you
privacy to use your computer and not have it projected on the screen. Ex. Put an assignment
on the board and you are free to privately check email, check attendance, etc.
This needs to be done once a month – the first of the month is an excellent time. Consult your
owner’s manual for instructions. This can extend the life of the bulb considerably.
Calibrating Your Activboard:
This tells the board where the pen is. Some examples of when you need to do this: If you
notice that the cursor does not line up closely with the point of the Activpen.
Hold the Activpen up to the lighted flame in the upper left corner of the board. The
screen will change to a bright white background with easy to follow instructions.
Remember, there are five (5) crosses to touch.
Launching Your ActivInspire Software:
The ActivInspire icon or shortcut will be on the desktop. Double click with your Activpen to
open the software.
Cleaning the board:
DO NOT USE ABRASSIVES OF ANY KIND ON YOUR ACTIVBOARD.
It has been found that Mr. Clean ‘Magic Eraser’ works best. After cleaning, a thin coat of
pledge will help keep your Activboard clean and help the Activpen glide more smoothly on the
surface of the Activboard.
