Join Aaron Quigley for an in-depth discussion in this video Handwriting and shape recognition, part of Learning Promethean ActiveInspire.
…As you're using the ActivInspire software with your Promethean board,…either as a white board, or to annotate on your desktop.…Sometimes you want the ability to make sure you've got really…clean writing, or very straight lines if you're drawing for your students.…I came across this issue a lot when I was teaching genetics.…I'd like to make a Punnett square, and so I'd quickly scribble out a box on the…board, with a line down and a line through the middle to create a two by two square.…As I'm doing this fairly fast to make sure that I don't lose the student…engagement and attention. My lines were not that straight.…Also, as I'm trying to illustrate an idea on the…board and I'm writing really fast, my handwriting's not that neat.…
Well, inside of ActivInspire there are several tools, one being…handwriting recognition, and the other being shape recognition that can help…make sure that what we want on the board is crisp…and clear and that our students can read and understand it.…Let's go ahead and use these tools to add…
