In each classroom Reepham removed the legacy SMART® Board and replaced it with the new Promethean ActivPanel.
Supplied and installed by Promethean reseller partner, Education Lincs, Reepham is already realising the benefits of the latest teaching technology. Ian Randall, Reepham Primary Headteacher, said: “We wanted to move to the latest front of classroom technology but also had to ensure we were investing in a solution which was designed for daily teaching. Having reviewed the products available, we felt the Promethean ActivPanel features provided exactly what our teachers and pupils needed.”
Offering a robust, full-high-definition screen combined with award-winning ActivInspire™ software, the ActivPanel has given Reepham teachers a powerful teaching tool to deliver engaging multimedia lessons and ultimately increase student engagement. The ActivPanel enables content to be viewed with great clarity, even at wide viewing angles, with a low-glare, low-reflectivity surface.
Ian continued: “We had no concerns over the potential of the glass surface becoming too hot to use and now the ActivPanels are in daily use, this has been confirmed – no finger burn!”
As a robust “front-of-class” interactive teaching solution available in 55”, 65”, 70” high-definition and 84” ultra-high-definition displays, the ActivPanel facilitates collaborative learning opportunities for all classroom sizes.
Supporting a full-range of learning experiences, including whole class, small team and individual classwork, the ActivPanel allows students to simultaneously share ideas, practice team-based problem solving and manipulate images.
