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.
If you are a lynda.com premium member, then you have access to the exercise files for this particular course. I highly recommend downloading the exercise files and placing them on your desktop. These exercise files contain all of the flipcharts that I use throughout the course. If at any time, you'd like to see how I created various elements or even use those elements in your own flipcharts. You can find them in folders that align with the various chapters. For example, here in Chapter 4, there's four different flipcharts that I use, and all of them are available to you. All of the exercise files are flipchart documents, meaning you can only open them in ActivInspire.
If you don't have access to the exercise files, please follow along using information that's appropriate for your classroom.
