Get Inspired with ActivInspire
Limited Capacity seats available

In this 2-hour workshop, Christine Ferrin will introduce participants to several tricks of the trade in ActivInspire to make your Promethean ActivBoard more interactive and student-oriented. We will use object hiding, actions, layering, Class Flow, and more in creating interactive flipcharts for your classroom. In addition to creating your own flipchart pages, participants will leave with sample pages and instructions. You will get the most out of the workshop if you bring some content or lesson plan material. Bring your laptop with the latest version of ActivInspire installed.

This workshop will start at the beginning and help you set up an account, get started, and find the magic of using all of the features available to bring your classroom into the 21st century. Edmodo's power is only limited by a teacher's creativity!
Edmodo is designed to get students excited about learning in a familiar environment. On Edmodo, teachers can continue classroom discussions online, give polls to check for student
understanding, and award badges to individual students based on performance or behavior.

Edmodo surfaces up engaging, easy-to-use apps that personalize learning for every student. These apps help teachers amplify their lesson plans and integrate seamlessly with Edmodo,
delivering all digital content in one place.
Edmodo makes it simple to track student progress. All grades and badges assigned or awarded through Edmodo are stored and easily accessible. Teachers can get the pulse of their classrooms
through student reactions to quizzes, assignments, and discussion posts that capture understanding, confusion, or frustration. Edmodo's Snapshot tracks student's progress as they master the standards of the Common Core.
