Did you know you can try SMART amp for free?
SMART is currently offering a free 90-day trial of their new collaborative software, SMART amp.
What is SMART amp?
SMART amp software is a new, easy-to-use, cloud-based learning platform. It enables teachers and students to collaborate in a nearly infinite workspace, in real time, from anywhere in the world.
Why do I want SMART amp in my school?
Here are just a few reasons why SMART amp will be your new favorite classroom software:
- Students work together and learn in new, more effective ways that inspire and empower collaboration and team-oriented projects.
- SMART amp supports flexible learning models, including whole-class instruction, collaborative group work, individual student projects, and presentations.
- SMART amp brings the full power of mobile devices to everyday learning activities. The platform works on most mobile devices (iPads, Surface tablets, Chromebooks) providing flexibility in device implementation strategies and tying together disparate devices.
- It requires no installation or ongoing maintenance, enabling access, creation, collaboration, and sharing at anytime, anywhere. SMART amp integrates with Google™ Drive™ and Google Apps for Education™, simplifying deployment and account management for your school.
So how do I get my free SMART amp trial?
Once you receive a subscription key for a SMART amp free trial, you’ll need to sign up with Google Apps for Education. The person setting up SMART amp for your school must be the Google Apps for Education administrator for the school.
