Promethean has released a new tool for promoting student engagement and assessment, and a new online solution for supporting teacher effectiveness.
Promethean’s Activexpression is a personal response system that empowers students to participate in lessons from their desks quickly and easily, expressing themselves through words, phrases, and numbers–instantly sharing with the entire class through the company’s Activboard interactive whiteboard system. With the product’s two-way radio communication system, teachers can transmit information directly to students, making Activexpression a powerful collaboration tool, Promethean says.
Another new service, Promethean Learning, is an online program that combines interactivity, assessment, and just-in-time professional development. Designed to support ongoing teacher effectiveness, Promethean Learning is an interactive professional development program that helps teachers build capacity, obtain certificates, and collaborate with their peers.
