ActivPanel Elements Series: FAQs on Interactive Displays for Education

A: For over 20 years, Promethean has been dedicated to education. We introduced the world’s first interactive whiteboard for the classroom and the ActivPanel Elements series continues our tradition of developing purposefully designed products that are designed by teachers for teachers.

A: Older generations of interactive boards for classrooms relied on projector-based technology. These projector systems would often periodic maintenance to replace bulbs, filters, and even the projector itself. Today’s interactive displays for education are based on LED technology and therefore, are practically maintenance free and have much longer lifespans than older projector-based systems.

A: The ActivPanel Elements series utilizes a customized version of the Android 8 operating system, providing a greater level of speed, reliability, and security.

A: In addition to the interactive Whiteboard App, a variety of Promethean Classroom Essential apps are included with the ActivPanel Elements series interactive display. The Annotation App allows teachers to write over any content at any time, regardless of the connected source. Teachers can also use the Screen Capture App to capture an image, crop, and import into the Whiteboard app. The ActivCast App provides the ability to collaborate from anywhere in the classroom by mirroring up to four devices to the ActivPanel Elements series at once. The customizable Spinner and Timer Apps add excitement to any classroom interactive display lessons activities.

A: Teachers have the ability to connect their computers to the ActivPanel Elements series interactive display in order to display their computer-based lessons using interactive whiteboard software, or presentations. Connecting a computer is not required in order to utilize the interactive panel.

These devices can be used to access and download Android apps from the Google Play store.

A: In addition to the apps delivered with the ActivPanel, all models in the Elements series include a single user license for ActivInspire Professional Edition, the original interactive whiteboard software. Designed specifically for use on classroom interactive displays, ActivInspire is a classroom lesson creation and delivery software that has been downloaded by teachers over 2 million times. Users can also create free accounts on ClassFlow, Promethean’s cloud-based lesson creation and delivery software, which has over 3 million registered users.
