The District has standardized with Promethean as our interactive whiteboard solution. Our partnership with Promethean provides a solution that allows educators to take standard lectures and turn them into interactive activities by integrating various learning styles into one experience. Students can learn by touching, seeing, hearing, and collaborating with the board, thus equipping teachers with new, innovative ways to teach the same subject material. Because of this, students learn better and retain more. Other benefits include:
- Ease: Interactive boards require little maintenance and are clean because there is no chalk or markers.
- Flexibility: Interactive boards allow educators to create lessons that inspire students using photos, graphs, maps, and videos.
- Connectivity: Interactive boards are connected to the internet, giving educators a resource of readily sharable online tools and information. Teachers can enhance and support their lessons with videos, articles, images, and other learning tools.
- Integration – Interactive boards can be attached to computers, microscopes, cameras, and camcorders to enhance instruction.
