New Interactive Classroom Panel Enhances Writing Experiences for Teachers
(London – 26 January 2017) Promethean, a leading global provider of educational technology solutions, introduced today the all-new ActivPanel with InGlassTM touch and writing technology and ClassFlow Desktop, an interactive lesson delivery software.
“ActivPanel is the intelligently-designed, connected hub of the modern classroom,” said Vincent Young, chief marketing officer, Promethean. “By designing ActivPanel with InGlassTM touch and writing technology, Promethean now offers teachers an improved writing experience and continues Promethean’s leadership in intelligent design.”
The award winning ActivPanel comes with an externally accessible Android™ based processor that allows users to update its performance capabilities easily. This simplifies the device maintenance process and protects the investment that schools make in the ActivPanel displays.
ActivPanel’s InGlassTM touch and writing technology offers a natural and smooth writing experience that is lag-free. It provides a built-in digital whiteboard for free-form handwriting and drawing, saving and sending capabilities, and a simultaneous touch and pen surface where teachers can enable palm erase or convert handwriting and equations into text.
With ActivPanel, teachers will have access to interactive, multimedia lessons through ClassFlow. Promethean hardware users will have access to both the cloud-based version of ClassFlow and the new ClassFlow Desktop software that can be accessed offline. With Classflow, teachers can:
