Ways to interact with the Promethean board - a refresher!

Ways to Access the Promethean Board…a Refresher

At the beginning of the New Year we
listed seven (7) ways for you and your students to access the Promethean Board:

Please refer to the Blog Post on January 17th http://bit.ly/17fYFpV for more information on these seven ways to access the
Promethean Board.

An eighth way to access the Promethean Board:

Some students may have difficulty accessing the
Promethean Board in traditional ways due to a variety of challenges. An
additional way that students can access the Promethean Board is to use a
switch. Using a switch allows students to interact with the lesson or activity,
increases independence and encourages participation in a group setting.

This is an example of a wireless switch called a Wireless Jelly Beamer switch and switch interface called a Crick Switch Interface. 

Please watch our YouTube Video to learn more about how
to use switches with your Promethean Board. http://bit.ly/GGObcz
