Edtech tools built on a foundation of research

For more than 25 years, Promethean has developed cutting-edge
technology that transforms the way the world learns and
collaborates. Through thoughtful, innovative product
development, we provide evidence-based learning tools
that improve outcomes for students and educators.

Logic models

Our logic models are roadmaps that illustrate how our hardware and software products are used by teachers and students, why they work, and the positive effects that result from incorporating them into the classroom environment.

Students actively engage in their learning.

  • Interact with high-value digital content, including lesson activities, videos, and learning checks.
  • Complete hands-on educational activities via touch, further enhancing comprehension and retention of concepts.
  • Stay attentive to lessons with the panel’s large display and multidirectional sound that make it easy to see and hear from anywhere.
  • Share work to the panel, engaging in peer-to-peer teaching and feedback that reinforces learning and boosts confidence.

Teachers create a collaborative learning hub.
