Such features make the ActivPanel Touch range a most compelling suite of front-of-class devices to the advantage of every student and teacher who interact with the large, bright screen of Promethean’s classroom solution.

ActivInspire
Award-winning ActivInspire software helps teachers bring lessons to life with rich, powerful activities that grab students' attention, blending real-time assessment and real-world experience into the learning process.

ActivInspire software at a glance:

  • Dual-user pen and multi-touch capabilities and interactivity tools promote collaboration and engagement in whole-class or small-group lessons.
  • Built-in lesson resources and 90,000+ resources on Promethean Planet give teachers a head start on the creation of innovative, engaging lessons.
  • New ActivInspire now with added ClassFlow integration.

ActivTable
The ActivTable is a multi-user, multi-touch interactive table supporting up to six students collaborating and learning together simultaneously. It uses intuitive tools including key boards, web browsers, and math tools all customizable for each activity.

ActiView 324
ActiView 324 is a visual presenter enabling printed materials and objects to be viewed and shared with an entire class. Using this technology offers opportunities for collaboration in the classroom as it facilitates the sharing of information and work as well as enabling students to engage collectively with 3D objects.

ClassFlow
ClassFlow allows for the interactive flow of dynamic content across the student computers, teacher computer and the Promethean ActivPanel. This allows teachers to see all of the children’s answers and ideas without sharing the information between students. By picking out the right answer and best comments the teacher is able to select the correct students to share their answers and ideas promoting active student participation and collaboration. The reward is to encourage every student to actively participate in their learning and to build each student’s self image.

Lecture Capture
Lecture Capture is the dynamic video capture system that records teacher-selected classroom teachings of the children by their own teacher as well as the live interaction of the teacher and class as they work together to learn. Each selected recorded lesson is archived within CELA’s network, and students can access and view the videos from any CELA device at any time. Each video is also indexed so that students can search for specific terms within a video. Based on the student’s individual assessments, they can review the sections that they were not proficient in or did not fully comprehend. Based on class assessment, the teacher can supplement any area that needs further clarification and add teaching material for that skill. The time saving and power of this technology in improving the teaching and the learning of children is unbelievable.

The power of having this resource for review at the end of a chapter or trimester significantly improves the retention of knowledge.
