Classroom Resources for use with CleverLynx and SnowFlake: As part of our CBI Project, the teachers and I have created a number of files which will run with CleverLynx or SnowFlake Software. My thanks to the teachers who have shared these resources: these are for classroom, non-commercial use; please respect their copyright. A resource can take two hours to produce: if you use more than one of these resources, I insist(!) that you create and share your own resource: please email these to davidk@ict4schools.ie


Note that you must have CleverLynx software installed on your computer in order to read these files. . The software can be obtained - subject to license - from http://www.cleverlynx.com/downloads

Similarly, MultiTeach SnowFlake software can be obtained - subject to license - from http://www.nuiteq.com/snowflake/software/multiteach/


Note that CleverLynx can also open Common File Format (.iwb files) so visit our page at cff---ireland.html
