ISTE 2011: New Ways to Respond

Self_Paced Why spend thousands of dollars to outfit a classroom with a student response system that is awkward to use? Promethean has a better idea. Why not use off-the-shelf tablets that can be used for other tasks or even student cell phones. That’s the idea behind the company’s Activengage. The teacher sets up questions on a big screen and the kids respond with a notebook, iPad or Android tablet. It’s not only something they’re familiar with but it’s easier to type in sentences. Promethean will introduce versions for Blackberry, Windows 7 Mobile and Nokia Symbian smart-phones. There’s a trial of the software available.
