About the
SMART Pen
Tray
The SMART Board comes with pens and an eraser. Not all SMART Pen Trays look alike,
but the functionality is the same.
Note: You do not need to use the pens to write on the interactive whiteboard, but the
pens make writing more intuitive.
SMART Pen
Colour
Each SMART Board is equipped with SMART Pens. Although they look like pens, they
are just plastic and don’t contain ink.
600 Series – Four SMART Pens in the tray (blue, red, green and black)
800 Series – Two SMART Pens in the tray along with the four coloured buttons to select
desired colour
Using the
SMART Pen
