ActivSlate

ActivSlate is a wireless, fully integrated, notebook-sized tablet that offers the same interactive functionality as the ActivBoard, but can be used from anywhere in the classroom. The ActivSlate enhances teachers’ abilities to deliver truly interactive, engaging lessons, while providing the freedom to instruct from anywhere in the classroom.

Interact from Anywhere in the Classroom

  • In an interactive classroom, nothing is static. Subjects, ideas and especially participants come alive in learning environments filled with movement and energy. While students enjoy interacting in front of the class at the ActivBoard, teachers also want connection and freedom of movement—to instruct from student desks, stimulate debates from the four corners of the room and direct lessons during group projects.
  • ActivSlate provides the flexibility to lead versatile, interactive activities by giving anyone the ability to control the ActivBoard from anywhere in the classroom. A wireless, fully integrated, notebook-sized tablet, ActivSlate uses the same ActivPens as our ActivBoard, is small enough to sit on a student desk, and is light enough to be passed around the classroom.

Why ActivSlate?

  • Interactive - The same interactive functionality as the ActivBoard accessible from anywhere in the classroom.
  • Mobility - The ActivSlate is small enough to sit on a student desk, and is light enough to be carried into the centre of any discussion. Enjoy the freedom of interacting with lessons, controlling applications and annotating content from anywhere in the classroom.
  • Low cost of ownership - The accessible, rechargeable and replaceable Lithium-Ion battery provides long-life. Instant-on mode ensures immediate interactivity and reliable, wireless connectivity while sleep mode provides longer battery life.
