October 23, 2015
(ATLANTA – October 23, 2015) – Promethean is pleased to announce that its cloud-based instructional delivery system ClassFlow was recognized in the Best Upgraded Products category of Tech & Learning’s 33rd Annual Awards of Excellence program, which honors outstanding education technology products. Additionally, Promethean’s ActivPanel, an interactive flat panel display, won as a New Product in the 2015 Awards.
Tech & Learning’s prestigious recognition program judges edtech products on quality and effectiveness, ease of use, creative use of technology, and suitability for use in an educational environment. A panel of more than 30 educators, who tested hundreds of entries, chose the winners.
“It’s truly an honor for two of our solutions to be recognized as outstanding products by Tech & Learning this year,” said Promethean CEO Jim Marshall. “We are incredibly proud of the hard work and dedication that helped our company earn these impressive awards.”
ClassFlow is a device-agnostic platform that gives teachers the ability to deliver high-impact, interactive lessons and increase the depth of student engagement by providing for the collaborative use of classroom devices, digital curriculum and assessments for learning.
The ActivPanel is an interactive display that transforms the front of the classroom into a collaborative learning center where multiple students can simultaneously share ideas, practice team-based problem solving, manipulate images and edit digital content. It promotes active participation in whole-class or small-group lessons by providing vivid interactivity and engaging learning experiences.
According to Kevin Hogan, editorial director for NewBay Media's Tech & Learning Group, "Once again this year, the Tech & Learning judges examined hundreds of entries to select the winners of 2015’s Awards of Excellence. This wasn't just checking off spec sheets and surfing other people's reviews. Each product was handled and scored individually. These companies can be proud that their products were selected as winners by this prestigious team of judges."
The New Product winners of the 2015 Tech & Learning Awards of Excellence will be featured in the December 2015 Awards Issue of Tech & Learning magazine. For more information on ClassFlow visit www.ClassFlow.com, and to learn about the ActivPanel visit www.PrometheanWorld.com/ActivPanel.
