What Hybrid Classrooms Should Look Like
If the past 14 months have been the world, biggest and boldest remote learning beta test, the next 14 months should prove out better tools and techniques for schools going forward. In this episode of EdTech Today, Matt Cole lays out what that means for how Promethean supports their districts.
Details from Promethean: The latest round of CARES funding will provide educators with the technology and development tools they will need to continue supporting students as we enter the next phase of education in remote, hybrid, and in-classroom learning environments.
For more than 20 years, Promethean has committed to providing schools with the necessary educational technology created for teachers by teachers. This includes our interactive displays, including software and professional development tools educators need to facilitate undisrupted learning through this period of transition and beyond.
“When they can’t be there, for whatever reason that may be, instead of stopping education, we have the ability to continue it.” – Matt Cole
Seamless Transition to Teach in All Environments
Promethean’s ActivPanel Element Series is an interactive display providing an all-in-one solution for hybrid and in-classroom learning, enabling learning experiences with more opportunity for interactivity. The ActivPanel Element series comes preloaded with a suite of premium teaching tools, such as infinite canvas, screen capture, timer, and spinner.
Our solutions expand from hardware to software, making sure educators are equipped with technology compatible with in-person, hybrid, and remote settings. ClassFlow and ActivInspire software are included with ActivPanel and allow for undisrupted teaching in all environments.
With ClassFlow, a cloud-based teaching software, teachers can build and deliver interactive lessons from any web browser, making lesson preparation easier and providing the opportunity to make lesson delivery more engaging for all students. This includes bringing presentations, documents, image files, videos, and more into a dynamic lesson and further engaging students with interactive polls and quizzes.
Additionally, ActivInspire is a collaborative lesson delivery software that provides a suite of tools to create and deliver exciting lessons. Students can also install ActivInspire Personal Edition and share activities for offline interactions. With multi-touch functionality and interactive tools, ActivInspire is designed to drive student engagement at the front of the class.
Using CARES II to Invest in EdTech
School districts can invest in Promethean technology for long-term use in any learning environment with CARES II funding. Beyond being a technology provider, Promethean partners with schools to support professional development for long-term teacher success. A section of the CARES II funding can be spent on professional development to integrate technology and bridge the learning divide, which Promethean has a standing commitment to deliver.
We offer high-quality virtual and in-person training to support edtech implementations nationwide. Our professional development platform, Learn Promethean, gives educators access to training, online courses, video tutorials, and more. The portal provides teachers with the resources and support they need to effectively use the technology.
As we continue navigating this next phase of education, the investment and prioritization of edtech and professional development is pivotal and is possible through the CARES II Act. See how Promethean can support your school’s specific needs by visiting PrometheanCARES.
