Really nice to see Promethean focusing on the learning this year at BETT 2011 as well as just their products. Their latest active-classroom solution the ActivBoard 500 Pro range supports multi-touch and works fantastically well well. Products like this have only been enhanced during recent years with the mult-touch capability being built into operating systems such as Windows 7.
Depending on the projector it is also now possible to view content in 3D and I don’t think it will be long before we see a lot of 3D content developed for Active Inspire and available on Promethean Planet.
I continue to think 3D does have a lot of potential in the classroom although a lot of the content is still fairly immature. But if companies like Promethean can build in 3D projection to their whiteboard solution and offer class sets of glasses at a fairly low price point. I am convinced it will take off.
Finally, a big well done to Promethean for being announced ICT company of the year at the 2011 BETT Awards.
