Promethean interactive whiteboards bring the immediacy of touch to your teaching. Learn the tools and best practices for using one in your classroom, in this course from author and educator Aaron Quigley. Aaron shows how to set up your Promethean board; download ActivInspire, the software that drives Promethean boards; and get started creating new presentations that include video, quizzes, and annotations. He'll also focus on teaching methods that get your students actively involved with the Promethean board, and offer challenges along the way to test their skills.
Hello and welcome to Up and Running with Promethean ActivInspire. This course is going to explore the tools and best practices to use in a Promethean Board in your classroom. We will briefly touch on the technical set-up of a Promethean Board and then dive deeper into the software that makes it all work, ActivInspire. Throughout the chapters, we will look at how to use a Promethean Board in lieu of a whiteboard or a chalkboard. And also how to create interactive presentations that your students can use for exploratory and self-guided learning.
An underlying theme for this course is student-centered teaching. And I will discuss tips and tricks that allow students to become key players in the operation and use of your Promethean Board. You can also test your learning with several challenges along the way. I hope you enjoy the content we will create together as we dive into Promethean Boards and the ActivInspire software.
