"Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn."

― Benjamin Franklin

Interactive technologies for business and education have been around for quite a few years now, and the expansion of these technologies appears to have no end in sight. Their effectiveness in work and teaching environments is now widely accepted, but the benefits they provide are largely dependent on howthey're used.

If I'm installing a door and all I have is a shovel, then I'm not going to get very far; but if I'm planting a tree, then I'm all set. Likewise, a hammer and saw are good to install a door, but make for a long day planting a tree. The key here is to have a diverse tool kit from which to draw, depending on the task at hand.

The latest interactive system from Promethean, the ActivPanel with ActivConnect, is loaded with features that enable learning to be collaborative, engaging, and downright fun. You've just got to have the right tools to inspire students. Here are some of my favorite tools from my Promethean tool kit:

Tools, games, and learning apps that work well on the ActivConnect android system.

  • Google Earth and Google Street View (both from Google LLC)
  • The mechanism of hearing VR 3D (from Mozaik Education)
  • Khan Academy (from Khan Academy)
  • Muscle | Skeleton – 3D Anatomy (from Catfish Animation Studio)
  • Google Classroom and Google Drive (both from Google LLC)
  • Brain It On! – Physics Puzzles (Orbital Nine Games)
  • YouTube Music (from Google LLC)
  • Cell World (from V.I.E.W.)
  • Draw a Stickman: EPIC (from Hitcents)
  • ZOOM Cloud Meetings (from zoom.us)
