The National Alliance for Black School Educators (NABSE) and Promethean are making an investment of more than $150,000 in interactive classroom technology and professional development to the Metro Nashville Public Schools. The donation is part of an annual program by NABSE and Promethean to close the achievement gap by modernizing classrooms and boosting parental engagement.
The donation will turn classrooms in 15 Nashville schools into learning centers complete with interactive whiteboards (ActivBoard), touch-screen interactive tables (ActivTable), hand held student response devices (ActivExpressions), and educational software.
Promethean’s pen and touch-screen interactive whiteboards (ActivBoards) will be placed in core curriculum and special needs classrooms. Select schools will receive the ActivTable, the newest collaborative learning solution. Each school will also get a set of ActivExpressions, handheld personalized learning devices teachers use to gather instant feedback on student comprehension and understanding.
