Promethean Planet, an interactive whiteboard community for educators, is now part of ClassFlow, a collaborative teaching and learning software community. With the merger, all lessons and resources designed to be presented on an interactive whiteboard can now be shared across a connected classroom and sent to students’ Chromebooks, tablets, and laptops using ClassFlow.

“We’re extremely excited about what this integration means for the 2.5 million Promethean Planet members around the world,” said Vincent Young, the Chief Marketing Officer at Promethean. “By uniting the Promethean Planet and ClassFlow teacher communities, we can empower educators globally with thousands of high-quality interactive teaching resources that can ensure the active engagement and participation of every student in the classroom.”

ClassFlow is teacher-designed lesson delivery software that energizes the classroom learning experience by allowing teachers to showcase lessons on any interactive display, share digital lesson materials with students, administer quizzes and polls, and assign group learning activities using mobile devices.

With ClassFlow, Promethean Planet users can search among the library of thousands of teacher-created lessons and resources now available in the ClassFlow Marketplace. These free resources within the ClassFlow Marketplace support a wide range of file formats including PowerPoint presentations, Microsoft Word documents, ActivInspire FlipCharts, Adobe PDF files, and more. As a part of the ClassFlow community, Promethean Planet users can now sell their lesson resources to other teachers in the Marketplace.

“As a teacher, ClassFlow is easy for me to use,” said Valerie Burton, a business teacher in New Orleans and a ClassFlow Ambassador. “ClassFlow gives me the freedom to customize my lessons. I can use either my own resources or some of the many resources within the Marketplace to customize my presentations and lessons. ClassFlow makes it easy to cater to my students. Whether it’s the great content in the ClassFlow Marketplace or the ability to create interactive assignments, ClassFlow allows me to send an interactive lesson to my students on their individual devices with just a few clicks of the mouse. This simplicity and efficiency really make a difference and save time.”

According to Sarah Wright, Senior Lecturer at Edge Hill University, UK, “ClassFlow can change the dynamic of the classroom. It gives learners the opportunity for interaction, engagement, and meaningful assessment with complete ease. Planet joining this platform opens up huge potential for taking existing resources and elevating them to ensure high-quality, meaningful, and exciting learning in our classrooms.”
