Learner

Response

Promethean's Learner Response Systems are creating a revolution in education. Each learner response device gives individual students a voice while equipping teachers with a revolutionary tool for delivering dynamic lessons tailored to the immediate assessment of student performance.

ActiVote

ActiVote is a hand-held wireless Learner Response System with a simple 6-button, A-to-F interface. Teachers poll students at any time during class to assess progress and, based on responses, customize lessons to create a more personalized learning environment that is tailored to individual student needs.

 

 

Ask, Engage and Assess

Classroom participation and student collaboration are integral components of the learning experience but it takes courage to speak up in front of classmates. ActiVote enhances interactive learning by giving even the most timid students a voice enabling educators to assess the entire class, while teaching based on the needs of individuals.

With A–F voting capability, a classroom-tough design ActiVote makes whole-class participation fun, exciting and easy. Ask a question with ActiVote and feel the energy level surge when the classroom comes to life with stimulating discussions and lively responses. Create a spontaneous, yet focused learning environment with ActiVote by polling the class and starting a debate on a whim to delve deep into students’ understanding of key concepts.

Give Every Child a Voice

With ActiVote, you won’t have to guess whether students truly grasp the lesson content. The entire class clicks to respond and answers are instantly viewed, shared and analysed on the ActivBoard in easy to understand formats, such as bar graphs and pie charts. Gain insight into student progress and use real-time feedback to determine whether you need to review, re-teach or proceed with the remainder of lesson. Students build confidence with every vote, while self-evaluating their progress through both instant feedback and achievement records tallied over time.

ActivExpression

Students have amazing things on their minds, and very little of it fits the standard multiple choice format.  ActivExpression turns question and answer into query, communicate and check comprehension. Full text-capability enables students to respond in full sentences as well as in numbers, symbols, math equations, true/false, Likert scales and more. Self-Paced Learning allows teachers to assign full quizzes of varying difficulty and gives students the opportunity to register answers at their own pace. Teachers can alter the assignment's length of time to challenge learners. 

 

 

Question Leveling is used for differentiated instruction. Teachers customize the level of each question to target learner profiles and enable students to venture deeper into the curriculum.

Familiar Form offers students a fun wireless communication tool like those they're already used to connecting with. Wire-free radio connectivity means ActivExpression works anywhere in the classroom with no line-of-sight needed.

Wonder Wheel interface floats over (and can be used with) most applications for full class participation and engagement throughout the entire lesson.

Overview


The ultimate collaborative learning tool, ActivExpression allows students to express themselves through words, numbers, symbols, Likert scales and more. Self-Paced Learning functionality encourages students to work at their own pace and level.

With Self-Paced Learning ActivExpression provides real time, immediate response details for each student per question. This facilitates immediate intervention enabling teachers to support individuals on exactly what they need, or identify individuals who need to be challenged further. With the ability to combine the progression of questions with an increase in difficulty; differentiation is achieved on a per pupil basis, enabling students to work at their own pace and level.
