This hands on course will provide Promethean users with a solid understanding of the impressive potential of the Promethean Board. Through lecture, readings, hands-on experience, practice, and reflection, participants will learn advanced strategies for creating, organizing, saving, and sharing engaging flipcharts (Promethean’s presentation model) that will directly tie into each participant’s lesson plans. In addition, online resources and other extraneous technology devices (Elmo/Ziggy), as well as other online platforms for lesson building (ClassFlow, Google Classroom) will be introduced to enhance and build participant’s repertoire for creation of interactive and engaging lessons. Participants will be expected to use these devices and resources to assist in developing high interest, current, content rich, and Common-Core aligned flipcharts. Participants will also read and understand a variety of texts that focus on physiological processes and strategies for interactivity and engagement to promote long term learning.
With the influx of Promethean Boards in many schools in the State of Vermont, this course is designed to ensure that teachers are provided with the training and resources needed to utilize the Promethean Boards to provide 21st Century instruction.
