Product Spotlight: Boardmaker Activity Pad by Mayer-Johnson, Inc.

The Boardmaker Activity Pad moves activities beyond the computer and into the hands of the learner. Create your own educational symbol pages, program functionality and instructions, and deliver that lesson to students wherever they are. The Boardmaker Activity Pad is durable and lightweight. It can be easily handled and carried anywhere at home, in the community or in the classroom. From communication to education, skill assessments to skill enhancement, alternate assessment to classroom participation, the Boardmaker Activity Pad has multiple functionality.

Unique, patented technology allows the Boardmaker Activity Pad to use the Smart Pocket media, providing almost unlimited expandability and maximum portability of all your activities. Each SmartPocket allows you to create two completely self-contained activities that can be used in any Boardmaker Activity Pad. Create your activity in Boardmaker or use any printed material, including photographs. Insert the printed activity or a photograph into a SmartPocket. Select a layout and record your message. Each SmartPocket holds a total of four minutes of recording time that can be spread over as many as 32 buttons per side.

The Boardmaker Activity Pad is now available for loan at the Simon Technology Center Library. Please stop in during STC Library hours: Tuesdays noon to 6 p.m. or Saturdays 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information on the Boardmaker Activity Pad, visit .
