Touch-screen interactive table allows up to six users at a time

Promethean today unveils ActivTable for public preview at BETT 2012. The ActivTable is aimed towards primary school and special educational needs learners. At 46 inches, the screen provides one of the largest interactive surface areas on the market and allows up to six students to use it at any one time, with ample room for them to work together. The interactive nature of the ActivTable encourages inclusion and collaborative skills such as problem solving, group work, critical thinking and consensus decision making.

The ActivTable is simple to set up and offers web browser capabilities, individual tool libraries and support for numerous applications and activities. Teachers can also create tailor made activities in order to meet core curriculum learning objectives. The ActivTable integrates with Promethean and third party resources, content and solutions, including interactive whiteboards.

The public launch of ActivTable will be in late March 2012, with general availability from late June.
