Promethean’s signature ActivPanel interactive display, which was recently enhanced to enable more comprehensive remote teaching and learning capabilities, has been named a winner in the 2020 Tech & Learning Awards of Excellence program in the Hardware category. The Tech & Learning Awards of Excellence spotlights stand-out products that improve the ways educators work and students learn.
ActivPanel is an industry-leading interactive display designed for modern, connected classrooms. Its latest generation, the ActivPanel Element Series, enables educators to deliver engaging, collaborative lessons using Promethean’s award-winning lesson delivery software, ClassFlow®, and ActivInspire®, and thousands of apps available at the touch of a button.
In response to the recent shift towards remote teaching and learning, Promethean swiftly made enhancements to ActivPanel’s robust capabilities, bolstering the system’s ability to be used inside and outside the classroom and make learning from anywhere possible. The ActivPanel is a must-have education technology tool that facilitates learning through collaboration, personalization, and active engagement and helps teachers prepare students for their future.
ActivPanel and its accompanying free software enable teachers to swiftly deliver engaging remote lessons from anywhere. Using ActivInspire®, teachers can record and share lessons via Google Classroom, Microsoft Teams™, Box™, and any cloud sharing platforms, while students can install the personal version of ActivInspire to share activities for offline interactions. With ClassFlow, a cloud-based lesson delivery software, users can work seamlessly with Microsoft’s OneDrive™, Google Drive™, Chromebook™, PCs, and more — so teachers can create and deliver lessons in any environment. ActivPanel’s screen-sharing capabilities also allow students to share content from within the class and while learning at home, therefore providing a hybrid learning solution for educators.
ActivPanel technology also saves classroom downtime and overall costs by reducing ongoing maintenance needs. The solution provides numerous front-of-classroom benefits without the hassle of ongoing upkeep found with older projector-based systems – like changing bulbs and filters – and increases active learning time. IT administrators have enhanced security and manageability delivered through Promethean Panel Management by centrally controlling panel configurations, settings, and restrictions from any location to create more consistent experiences across schools within their district.
Designed by teachers for teachers, Promethean products are used in more than 1 million classrooms worldwide.
