Blackburn, UK (PRWEB) March 29, 2012
A new collaborative and interactive education solution being released today by Promethean will help teachers re-imagine learning and boost the level of activity in classrooms. The ActivTable, a touch-screen interactive table, empowers students to take a more active role in their learning. The more than 25 activities, mapped to standards, inspire students to get involved and participate in group-based projects.
Using natural touch gesture-based movements on the multi-touch screen, students work in teams, pairs or individually to manipulate content and engage in activities that support lessons aligned to core subjects. In this 21st Century learning setting, students collaborate by simply sharing work with others across the ActivTable or collectively creating content or conducting research to complete a common goal on lessons.
The ActivTable supports wireless web browsing and integrates easily with the Promethean ActivBoard. Educators and learners have easy access to a wealth of tools and resources including web browsers, virtual keyboards, an image bank and offers the ability for teachers or learners to easily record sound files. Up to six students can simultaneously use these activities to build collaboration skills such as problem solving, critical thinking and consensus decision-making.
