I love the ideas you have. I don't have a smartboard. We have a mimio and a white board. Will your lessons work on a mimio? We just got this and I am having trouble figuring out how to make lessons that will work on it. If yours work, you just saved me a million headaches.

I am not positive this will work since I don't have a mimio board. Now with that said I have been doing some checking around and I have found that there is a process to convert SMARTBoard lessons to Mimio. Here are the directions I found:
You need to pull up mimio and then when you click on open file, there is the drop down box that is labeled files of type, there should be a smart notebook listing. Realize anything that is interactive will not work. Pictures and text will download fine. Sometimes backgrounds would not always transfer over but that is an easy fix. If the smart software is on your computer still, the notebook software will run and work the same, you just have to use the mimio pen.
Now there is animation with this lesson so it may not work the way it should. You might want to check with your tech person to see if you can reactivate the animation once it downloads.
Sorry I could not be much more help
I do know you can download a 30 day trial for Smart Notebook. http://smarttech.com/us/Support/Browse+Support/Download+Software+Internal/SMART+Notebook+Software/SMART+Notebook+software+-+software+only/SMART+Notebook+software+-+software+only/SMART+Notebook+software+10_7+for+Windows+-+software+only
