Technology Simplified: Mimio (Part 1) By: Austin Spencer & Matthew Glines JCHS STAT Team MimioHub Step 1 • Locate the MimioHub and make sure it is secured in a USB port on the ZeroClient. Ensure that the light on the MimioHub is Green. Step 2 • Ensure that the light is Green on the MimioTeach Bar. (If not, please check the troubleshooting slide.) Pen Functions Pen Tip Toolbar Status Indicator Right Click • The pen is located on the side of the MimioTeach Bar. • Parts of the Mimio Pen (Pen tip must be on the board to activate the right click.) Step 3 • To calibrate, press the “Crosshairs” button on the MimioTeach bar. Then, press Enter on the keyboard. The calibration screen will then move to the projected screen, so make sure the projector is on. Precisely tap the center on each target as it appears with the tip of the Mimio pen. MimioStudio Tools Icon Step 4 • Open MimioStudio Tools, either on the desktop or through the Windows Start menu. Toolbar Functions Mouse Pen Highlighter Zoom Text Box Shapes Eraser Current Color Color Selection Pen/Font Width Step 5 • The MimioToolbar will appear on the left side of the projector screen. Pressing the icon in the bottom right corner will allow you to write overtop anything that is pulled up on the projector. (Blank screen, Powerpoint, even a webpage, etc.) To write, simply tap the pen icon, choose a color, then select the size for the line width using the slider. Step 6 • Pressing the bottom left icon will cause the screen to go back to normal (i.e. you can click but no longer write using the Mimio) Step 7 • When finished using the Mimio, click the X on the Mimio Toolbar and return the pen to the MimioTeach Bar. Troubleshooting and Hints: 1. When clicking on the bottom left icon in the toolbar, all writing on the screen will disappear. 2. The Mimio Pen will only work on the projected screen. 3. If the light on the MimioTeach Bar is yellow/amber, be sure the MimioHub is plugged in. If this does not solve it, contact your school’s technology assistant. Have fun using the basic aspects of Mimio!
