Help with Board Actions

I've created a board with a Christmas background. The user has to move the decorations (movable buttons) onto the background to decorate the room (destination). When the board is loaded, I've got some Christmas songs to play randomly using Edit Board Actions. However, while the song is playing, the decorations cannot be moved into the room, I have to wait until it finishes. I've also got a speaker button to play random songs but the same thing happens - decorations cannot be moved until the song finishes. Any suggestions please. Julie

    In design mode, go to the Dynamic Boards drop-down menu and click "Button Selection..." In the pop-up window, try un-checking "Finish Current Actions Before Allowing Next Selection." This should allow other things to happen, but the music may go off as soon as the next action is started. You might try making the music a "Board Action." In the "Edit" pull-down, choose "Edit Board Actions" and put the music there.

    e.g. sad, anxious, confused, frustrated kidding, amused, unsure, silly indifferent, undecided, unconcerned happy, confident, thankful, excited

  • If you make it part of Board actions without doing that other change (Unchecking finish current actions), it doesn't let you move on until the action is done. The finish current actions thing is a global change however. That means that the student can interrupt any button action. If you have a "Clicky Clickerson" (as I call her) who will rapidly click, they would be able to interrupt your directions. Hoping that they can make that something we could set on an individual board basis.
