If you haven’t checked for firmware updates on your SMART Board, you are missing improvements to your user experience!
Firmware is a small set of software on a hardware device. Taking advantage of firmware updates when they are available may fix issues you’ve been having or give you additional features. Whether they are minor fixes or major updates, they can make a big difference in the effectiveness of your teaching tool.
SMART Technologies has recently released a new firmware update with the following improvements:
- The 6000 series SMART Interactive Flat Panels have an update that addresses the possible problem of writing and letters being inadvertently connected together.
- The Windows 10 Anniversary Update (1607) addresses issues with touch and double clicking.
The following video shows how to update the firmware on a 6000 series interactive flat panel. The process is the same for all SMART Boards.
