To teach like a Promethean pro, ongoing training is a must! ESC-20 offers three levels of ActivInspire training plus customized workshops to meet your needs. Districts can schedule these classes at their own location. Please view the course descriptions and agendas below for more information.
- Core Essentials - Part 1 (Beginner)
Learn how to use the main features of ActivInspire software to create a basic flipchart presentation. Customize the main toolbox and change software settings for your convenience. Search for ready-to-use materials in the Resource Browser and on Promethean Planet.
This course is for teachers who have never used an ActivBoard or who have been using a board with no formal training.
- Core Essentials - Part 2 (Intermediate)
Create more interactive flipcharts by layering and locking objects using the Object Browser. Learn how to create Magic Erasers and really capture your students' attention!
Teachers who attend this course should have already attended Core Essentials Part 1 and feel comfortable using creating basic flipcharts in their classroom.
- Beyond the Essentials (Advanced)
Use the Property Browser to customize objects on flipchart pages and create self-checking activities called Containers. Learn how to integrate video clips and interactive websites into a flipchart. Use the Action Browser to turn objects into buttons.
