Summit Pre-Conference: Promethean ClassFlow Desktop
Become a Promethean ClassFlow Desktop Crusader:
Updating to Promethean’s new ClassFlow Desktop Education Software
UPCOMING SUMMER PD SESSIONS
Promethean announces the launch of ClassFlow Desktop, the next generation of Promethean Education Software. And its a free upgrade to all educators using ActivInspire Professional on Promethean equipment.
The intuitive interface of ClassFlow Desktop means that any teacher can develop a comfort level with the software in minutes. Teachers can easily convert existing Flipcharts, PDFs, and other file formats into ClassFlow lessons. Most importantly, teachers can connect and share content, quizzes, and polls with their students simply with the touch of a button making effective formative assessment approachable to teachers regardless of their prior technology experiences. Use ClassFlow Desktop as a stand alone Windows or Mac application, or expand your capacity with ClassFlow or Google. There is no internet or online requirement to run ClassFlow Desktop on new or existing Promethean equipment.
As we begin the migration from Promethean’s ActivInspire software to the newest Promethean ClassFlow Desktop software, AXI Teaching and Learning Consultants will be offering professional development opportunities to build sustainability within districts throughout the state.
Louisiana’s first ClassFlow Desktop sessions to learn all you need to know to become a ClassFlow Desktop Crusader! Participants will leave with not only a ClassFlow Desktop Crusader Badge but also
- Update path to ClassFlow Desktop software free to all Promethean users
- How to obtain and deploy the latest ClassFlow Desktop version;
- Understanding of Promethean’s free ActivInspire Lesson File Conversion service;
- PD and other helpful resources to support ClassFlow Desktop integration in their own schools and districts.
In this session, participants will learn the ins and outs of ClassFlow Desktop, Promthean’s new, “one stop shop” application that caters to both front of the classroom engagement as well as individualized instruction with student computing devices.
Now that lesson interaction has expanded beyond the Promethean Board and is the hands of students with computing devices, teachers are asking, “What is the easiest way to seamlessly integrate it all?
Promethean is offering a Free ActivInspire Lesson File Conversion Service
Additionally, Promethean recognizes that over the last eight years since ActivInspire was first introduced, educators have created and delivered hundreds and hundreds of thousands of great ActivInspire Flipchart lessons that promote active engagement and foster student participation in the classroom.
Promethean will be providing an ActivInspire lesson file conversion service to help districts with the tremendous amount of content and intellectual property they have developed. To convert larger quantities of ActivInspire Flipcharts (minimum of 50) free of charge through December 31, 2017, please visit https://classflow.com/convert.
ClassFlow expands opportunities for student engagement allowing students to leverage many newer and emerging technologies, both today and into the future. AXI Education Solutions and Promethean look forward to continuing our journey together in changing the way teaching and learning happens for the students of Louisiana.
As the modern classroom continues to evolve, teachers and students are provided with digital learning opportunities most never dreamed possible. Students experience a connection to their peers, their teachers, and those around the world through Google Hangouts and virtual reality glasses. Students begin coding when they enter Kindergarten. They use 3D printers to create everything from three dimensional shapes in geometry to iPhone cases to Barbie shoes.
