Education + Elearning


- Hello, and welcome to Up and Running with Promothean ActivInspire. This course is going to explore the tools, and best practices, to use in a Promothean board in your classroom. We will briefly touch on the technical setup of a Promothean 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 Promothean board in lieu of a whiteboard or 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 Promothean 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 Promothean boards, and the ActivInspire software.
