Smart Technologies has announced the Mac version of Smart Notebook SE
(Student Edition) software. Smart Notebook SE Mac
( created specifically to
meet the needs of tech-savvy students by providing them with a
learning tool that complements the way they think and organize,
according to Smart CEO Nancy Knowlton.

The student edition is compatible with the Mac version of Smart
Notebook software, which many K–12 teachers use as their primary
lesson creation and delivery application. The Windows software was
released in October 2008 and made available on a 2GB USB silicon
bracelet in December 2008. The Smart Notebook SE bracelet lets
students access any computer, complete assignments and save work to a
single, portable USB key. A Mac version of the Smart Notebook SE
bracelet will be available this fall.

Smart Notebook remains one of the most popular collaborative learning
software applications in the world, with more than 25 million
classroom users in more than 175 countries worldwide. Of these,
approximately 15 percent operate on the Mac platform. Smart Notebook
SE Mac helps students in classrooms with Mac computers keep track of
assignments, complete homework, review notes and transfer files.

The software is available in English, French, German and Spanish. The
Smart Notebook SE Mac bracelet adds an additional level of usability
and portability to the student software by enabling students to
access homework, digital texts, multimedia and other important
information from any school, library or home computer. The software
also runs automatically from the bracelet, so there is no need to
download or install it.

The suggested education price for Smart Notebook SE is US$35 per
student and $49 per student for the USB Bracelet (which includes
software). The list price in each market outside the United States
depends on local applicable taxes, duties and importation costs.
