Our free Promethean user groups offer teachers an informal opportunity to exchange ideas and share tips and tricks. I’ll be blogging more about the ideas shared so that more folks will be able to learn and continue to explore. Here are recaps from August and September:
In August, Honowai teacher, Danice Mineshima, shared the many ways she uses the camera tool in ActivInspire. Danice showed how she easily creates flipchart lessons by using the camera tool to take pictures of images on the Internet, online worksheets – essentially using it as a screen capture tool to easily integrate images. With the assistance of other Honowai teachers, our participants were given hands-on time to help master the use of the camera tool. Thanks to the talented teachers at Honowai!
This month’s user group was held at Mililani Mauka Elementary where folks were treated to not just one but four teacher presenters! Thank you Dave Morishige, Carita Inoue, Gayle Horie, and Johnna Jacobson for sharing your knowledge of ActivInspire. From learning how to import sound and videos to using the ActivBoard with other software programs and hardware peripherals, teachers walked away with lots of useful information to take back to their classrooms. For those of you that were unable to attend, you can download a flipchart example shared in the session.
Join us for our next user group on Wednesday, November 18, 2011 at Our Lady of Good Counsel School from 3:30-5:30 pm.
