The recommended classroom interface is the 70” touch screen monitor in the classroom. It can be controlled by either a finger or a stylus that should be located with the screen.
On the touch screen, to access the start menu touch it once and all programs will display. All available software is in the Start menu. Similarly, to open a program, double tap on the screen twice to open it, similar to the use of a mouse.
Holding the stylus to the screen is the equivalent of holding down a mouse to a computer screen and you will receive the same effect and function. There is also a virtual keyboard on the screen to use to type. All commands performed on the touch screen will reflect on the secondary, non-touch controlled display.
To use the pen on the touch screen, hit the Start menu once and all software will appear, including a Sharp Pen Software folder. There are two options for using the pen, Overlay Mode Pen Software and Pen software. The Overlay Mode is transparent and will allow you to write over what is already on the screen. The Pen software will allow the screen to be used as a white board.
A toolbox for the Sharp Pen Software will appear on the screen when opened. These toolboxes can me moved anywhere on the screen by dragging them with the pen to the desired location. The first menu gives the user options to have up to three pen preferences (color, size, etc.) as well as an eraser option that can be adjusted for size just below the pen options. The menu has two screens, at the bottom of the toolbox you’ll see an arrow that when you hit it allows you to flip to a second toolbox. On this screen the only function that you will use is the save feature, which is located in the lower left hand corner of the toolbox. With the save function you can your work as an image or as a PDF file. If you have only used one screen you can save as an image, if you have multiple screens it is recommended you save your work as a .PDF file, which will save your work as a continuous set of data.
