Promethean Enhances ClassFlow™ for UK Teachers
19 January 2016
(LONDON – Jan. 20, 2016) – At Bett 2016 (Stand B99), global education technology company Promethean, will be showcasing the latest version of the award-winning ClassFlow learning platform for UK schools. With a suite of enhanced features and advanced functionality – completely free of charge – ClassFlow helps teachers to improve student engagement, assess comprehension and support personalised learning, through the integrated use of popular devices such as laptops, tablets, and Chromebooks.
Since its initial launch at Bett two years ago, ClassFlow has undergone significant development which has focused on creating a powerful software solution which directly addresses the modern needs of education environments. By registering for a free ClassFlow account, teachers will gain access to a wealth of collaborative tools and the ability to prepare multimedia rich lessons which can incorporate real-time feedback as well as create project-based learning experiences which are personalised to different groups of students or individuals.
Ian Curtis, Head of Europe, Africa and Australasia, Promethean, explains: “The concept of ClassFlow has always been to provide teachers with a platform which enables the integration of varied classroom technologies and supports a diverse range of teaching and learning activities, regardless of the devices that are in use.
“Using ClassFlow gives teachers a central point for lesson preparation, lesson delivery and student assessment. While this makes life a little easier for the teacher, even more importantly, the interactive features of ClassFlow empower both teacher and student to engage in truly collaborative learning opportunities.”
To help support teachers in the adoption of ClassFlow, after Bett 2016 Promethean will start to roll out a series of pre-prepared lessons which will be available at www.ClassFlow.co.uk. With the next release of ClassFlow in March 2016, hundreds of lessons suitable for the UK curriculum will be made available for free.”
Ian continues: “Experience has shown us that teachers are pressed for time – and the time challenge is only getting harder. From a technology perspective we’re helping to resolve this challenge by providing ClassFlow as a single platform for lesson preparation, delivery and evaluation. With the technology well established and robust, we’re tackling the next stage which is to provide an extensive bank of prepared resources. In particular, primary teachers will be able to have access to around 100 spelling, grammar and punctuation (SPaG) assessments with thousands of questions that they can use immediately within Key Stages 1 and 2 in preparation for external testing later this year. Once again, these assessments will be provided completely free of charge.”
At Bett 2016, Promethean will be showcasing ClassFlow in a live lesson environment. Students from Saltash Community School will be joining UK teachers on Stand B99 to demonstrate how ClassFlow creates dynamic and creative learning opportunities. For Primary teachers, there will also be sessions which focus on the use of ClassFlow to support SPaG assessment.
