Promethean has announced a planned donation of thirty ActivClassrooms to Washington, DC-area schools. Each classroom will receive an ActivBoard+2 system, including a 78” ActivBoard interactive whiteboard, short-throw projector, mounting boom and ActivInspire Professional Edition software.

Ten of the ActivClassrooms will be installed at The Lab School of Washington. Founded in 1967 by Sally L. Smith, The Lab School of Washington is internationally recognized for its innovative programs for children and adults with learning disabilities. Marty Cathcart, Director of Development at The Lab School of Washington states, “ActivClassrooms are the perfect extension of the experiential, interactive approaches to teaching rigorous academic material that make our methods successful with students who have struggled in traditional educational settings.”

The additional twenty classrooms will be installed in DC-area public schools. Promethean is working closely with the DC District Chancellor’s Office to identify some of the most deserving public schools in the local area and a final list of these schools will be available following the National Education Computer Conference.
