ActivClassroom in Motion Named Best Mobile Marketing Program

Atlanta, GA, 17 May 2011 — Global education company, Promethean, was awarded the 2011 Ex Award for the Best Mobile Marketing Program for its ActivClassroom in Motion.

Unveiled for the first time to a national audience in June 2010, the ActivClassroom in Motion is a 21st century classroom on wheels. The 36-foot RV-style bus is equipped with Promethean’s interactive whiteboards with projectors (ActivBoard), hand-held learner response systems (ActivExpression and ActiVote), and other supporting technology products that when used with ActivInspire, Promethean’s proprietary education software, power the ActivClassroom.

Over the past year, the ActivClassroom in Motion has travelled to over 35 states where parents, teachers, students and school administrators have experienced what learning is like in a 21st century classroom.

Facing stiff competition, Promethean was thrilled to win the award. “Winning the Ex Award for the Best Mobile Marketing Program is a significant accomplishment,” said Paul Berry, Chief Marketing Officer for Promethean. “As a global education company, we work tirelessly to develop innovative ways to demonstrate our award-winning solutions. We would like to thank our lead agency, Infinity Marketing, for their contributions to our success.”

The Ex Awards recognize the best of the best in experiential marketing and have become the most sought-after marketing industry trophy in the world. No other award program generates as many entries from as many countries around the globe—and no other program is judged entirely by client-side marketers.

Promethean’s latest accolade follows a series of prestigious award wins in 2010. The company was named, ‘ICT Company of the Year’ at BETT, ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ at the AV Awards, and picked up the top prize in three categories at the Worlddidac Awards. Three Promethean products are finalists for the 2011 CODiE Awards.
