Promethean, the UK-based maker of interactive whiteboards, is planning an initial public offering valuing it at £400m-£500m, which would propel it to the front of the class in the rapidly expanding market for digital classroom technology. Smart may follow.
Which ones do you use? I have trained teaching staff using both Smart Notebook and ActivStudio…(with the new versions currently being rolled out).There are some fantastic resources out there and promeathean planet and smart resources are available from within the software dashboards / resource kits. I have however founf that the installation of the software has been hit and miss in classrooms with often several key components missing. For me Smart is the more intuitive solution however the Promethean software has much more exciting advanced features.
