Versatile Precision

Interactive learning is a seamless, intuitive experience with Promethean’s ActivPen. Featuring the full functionality of a mouse, including cursor and click capabilities, the ActivPen allows you to hover over icons to review their functions and access helpful tools, making software quick and easy to learn. With the ActivPen, you can transform any computer operation into an interactive learning opportunity on the ActivBoard or ActivSlate. Drag and drop, highlight, open tools and applications, switch between pages and activate sounds and images. Highly accurate and precise, the ActivPen's mouse-like and pen-like functionality enables you to measure and mark on the ActivBoard to the millimeter or degree.

With ActivArena, leverage ActivInspire templates and ready-made activities specifically designed to facilitate collaborative learning. During ActivArena-powered lessons, students solve problems together, building confidence while developing effective, lasting communication skills.

ActivPen is included with all ActivBoards and with ActivSlate.

ActivArena dual-user functionality is included with ActivBoard 300 Pro and ActivBoard 500 Pro. It is available as an upgrade for previous versions of ActivBoards and for ActivBoard 100 and 300.
