Looking for a way to integrate learning apps into your classroom? SMART Technologies has you covered with a curated list of approved educational apps from the Google Play Store that you can add directly onto your classroom board and start using right away! 

In order to use this feature, you should be using a SMART board panel with an IQ module – that is, the built in Android operating system on a SMART board. Boards that run this system are typically not connected to a computer, and are in the MX, 6000, 6000S, and 7000 series. With that in mind, let’s take a look at how to add in educational apps to your board.

How to add apps on your SMART board:

    • Tap the Apps icon on the bottom menu of your board
    • Tap the App Store tile
    • Look through or search the curated list of approved apps
    • Tap the app you want to add
    • Tap the install button
    • Follow the on-screen prompts
    • Find added apps in the Apps menu
    • Star frequently used apps to add them to your home screen

Take a look at this video walk-through:

 

It’s as simple as that to add apps to your board! Remember, the apps are from the Google Play store, but not every app in the store will be available on your board, only pre-approved educational apps that have been curated by SMART. For access to more apps, your school’s administrator can use SMART Remote Management to send any Google Play Store app to your board.
