(SEATTLE – May 8th, 2018) The 24th Annual Best Educational Software Awards (BESSIE Awards) and EdTech Digest’s 2018 Cool Tool Awards recognized Promethean®, a global education technology company, and its products ActivPanel™, ClassFlow™, and ActivInspire™ as a company shaping the future of education technology.

Hosted by ComputED Gazette, a premiere education resource in California, the 24th annual Best Educational Software Awards (BESSIE Awards) highlights innovative and content-rich software programs and websites providing parents and teachers with technology that fosters excellence. Promethean’s ClassFlow and ActivInspire were highlighted as the best planning resource website and the best digital lesson planning software, respectively.

In addition to winning two BESSIE Awards, ActivPanel and ClassFlow were also acknowledged by EdTech Digest’s 2018 Cool Tool Awards, an awards program showcasing innovators, leaders, and trendsetters within the education technology industry.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by ComputED Gazette and EdTech Digest,” said Ravi Angadi, Chief Products Officer at Promethean. “Promethean has been a pioneer in the K-12 EdTech space for over 20 years, and we find success by creating strong platforms with tools that empower teachers in the classroom. We are planning even more features and improvements for our world-class lesson delivery platforms ActivInspire and Classflow, as well as for our interactive panels in 2018.”

ActivPanel continues to offer the best natural writing experience in any classroom worldwide, driving increased student engagement and confidence at the front of the class. While other companies focus on touch technology, Promethean’s products incorporate unique technologies that allow for natural handwriting and detect fine details that are often required in math equations, diagramming, or writing. ActivPanel also automatically detects differences between pen, touch, and palm erase so teachers can focus on lessons and students rather than technology.

ClassFlow is a cloud-based lesson delivery software designed by teachers for teachers. With ClassFlow, teachers have access to advanced classroom collaboration tools, such as instant polling and quizzes, and millions of educational resources and activities. ActivInspire is a great platform for schools that prefer to use desktop-based software. Known and loved by millions of educators, ActivInspire is a collaborative lesson delivery software that provides teachers with differentiated lessons, creation tools, and activities to bring their lessons to life.
