More Help with Copying

If you have an interactive whiteboard in your classroom, the whiteboard software (e.g. Smart Notebook, ActivPrimary and others) usually lets you print what is shown on the screen.

When you set an activity which involves copying text / diagrams from the board, sometimes children struggle with this (if they have difficulties with their vision, or simply if they are not sitting where they can see the board easily). In these situations, why not print a copy of your screen and let them copy the printed version more easily when they're sitting in their place?

If your whiteboard won’t let you print the screen, you can use the following methods too:

  • On a Windows machine, press the PRT SC button. Then go to your word processing software and click on Edit --> Copy. This will copy a picture of your screen into the document, which you can then print.
  • On a Mac, press CMD / Shift / 3 at the same time. This will save a copy of your screen to your desktop, which you can then print.
