Smartboard Tips & Tricks - Create Custom Highlighters

The other day I was in a high school math class (Mrs. Burton's room) and saw her using multiple colored highlighters with her SMARTboard.  She was highlighting the different parts of a quadratic equation to help students groups the numbers.  This got me thinking...highlighting is a skill which is difficult to master.  Most students will either highlight everything on the page or hardly anything.  Modeling highlighting on your SMARTboard is a great way to get them on the right path.  By default there is only one highlighter option in Notebook.  Check out the video below to see how you can create your own custom highlighters for use in Notebook or on the web.
