Technology Tutorials and More: Smartboard Activity: What is the activity builder and how do I use it? | Web 2.0 Tools for Educators | Scoop.it
Brian Weir's insight:

The activity builder was a nice touch from the people at Smarttech.  With the activity builder you can create categorization activities quite quickly.  Students will drag items from the the Notebook page into a category and if they are right the object will stay or disappear and if the student is wrong the item will bounce back to where it was.  Using the activity builder is extremely useful and very easy to use.
