Wednesday, September 26, 2007 Peeking at Promethean
Kelley Simers visited with the VLC Instructional Technology Team (ITT) sharing a demonstration of the Promethean Activboard. This board is similar to the SMARTboard that many of our member districts own. The purpose of the demo was to increase awareness, as well as provide additional support and professional development to our area schools in the future. Each VLC member was able to try the Activote, a wire-free, hand held voting device for teachers to use with the board. The ITT was also allowed the chance to try the Activslate, interactive wire-free mini board that allows the user to stand in a different position around the room to use the board. Kelley also shared the many resources teachers can use with the board. The VLC was excited to learn more about yet another technology that is helping to improve teaching, and ultimately student learning.
