Teaching with your Promethean ActivPanel (Self-Paced Online Course)
Are you teaching a course at SSC and your classroom has the Promethean ActivPanel Board? Are you looking for some exciting ways to increase engagement for your students. Sign up for this 30-minute, online self-paced course demonstrating various scenarios that you can use in your physical classroom:
Scenario #1: Covers how to turn your existing resources into engaging lessons, mark up the content, export as a pdf. You can then post this pdf to D2L.
Scenario #2: Build lessons using the built-in templates. The Promethean ActivPanel board has several templates that instructors can easily find under the insert image option. These templates include a Periodic Table, Mindmaps, Fraction Equivalence Strip, T-Chart, Circle Fraction, Geoboards, just to name a few.
Scenario #3: Multi-User Races. Use the built-in timer and alphabet spinner to have two students race to brainstorm words or ideas.
Scenario #4: Rub and Reveal. Upload any image and label certain areas of the image. An example is parts of the human brain. Create a white shape to cover the labels. As you teach, reveal the labels by simply erasing the white shape that covered the labels.
Scenario #4: Build a Story. Upload several images or open up Chromium to capture images from the internet. Showcase those images on the whiteboard. Use the spinner with creative words. Have students build a story based on the images and the words the spinner landed upon.
Scenario #5: Science Lab. Upload scientific images and have students come up to the board circle certain parts based on your question you ask in class.
Scenario #6: Guess Who. Upload a certain image and have students guess who it is by sliding the revealing answer.
Scenario #7: Scavenger Hunt. Use the spinner tool to add certain words. After the spinner lands on certain words, have the students search the internet for images on a laptop they are using in class. Have students share their screens with the Promethean screen sharing tool to share their findings.
Scenario #8: Hundreds Plus. Select the Hundreds Plus template (part of the many templates preloaded). Enable multi-user mode. Add the timer and spinner to have students circle values. Clear all annotations to begin the process with new values from the spinner tool.
