What's new with Boardmaker Studio?

Boardmaker software from Mayer Johnson has been around for years and has been used faithfully by special educators. A year ago, Mayer Johnson introduced Boardmaker Studio, a new version of the software that allows teachers to quickly print out activities on paper or design interactive activities that can be used on a computer or with an interactive white board. This session will teach you how to create activities using fast and easy templates, design activities from scratch, create pictures for augmentative communication, and access thousands of free activities designed by educators from around the country through Mayer Johnson's Boardmaker Share. This software will help you spend less time preparing materials and more time working with your students!
