New mobile app for classrooms

Promethean today launched its first mobile app for the classroom, ActivEngage Mobile, a new virtual learner response system designed to expand and support the use of hand-held devices, such as iPad, iPod Touch, iPhone, and Android devices (tablets and phones) for teaching and learning activities. The application can be used with a mix of hand-held technologies, (e.g. Promethean ActivExpression devices alongside iPod Touch) to enhance assessment for learning and student response activities without the added cost of additional hardware.

The application supports delivery of a wide range of assessment question types: multiple choice, true/false, Likert, sort in order, text response and numeric. Advanced options, such as question levelling, enable progressive assessment activities to challenge students and help teachers address gaps in learning paths. Results are immediately tabulated, saving time and giving teachers information to address student needs in real time.

Promethean’s ActivEngage is a multi-platform (Windows and Mac systems simultaneously) software application that will work on any laptop, desktop or networked wireless device. Now, ActivEngage Mobile extends this functionality to include Apple iOS and Android devices.
