Promethean Announces New ClassFlow™ 2.0

ATLANTA --(Business Wire)--

Promethean, a global leader in education technology, announces its new ClassFlow 2.0 update. ClassFlow, the "all-in-one" interactive lesson orchestration platform for creating and delivering interactive multi-media lessons across a connected learning environment, breathes a high level of educational purpose into the various devices that many schools have purchased and deployed in an effort to improve student engagement.

"ClassFlow assists teachers as they cultivate active learners with actionable skills that prepare them for the future," said Scott Cary, Chief Marketing and Products Officer at Promethean. "ClassFlow harnesses all of the different technology in the classroom and connects them into one environment that educators can use to engage students, personalize instruction and foster collaboration. With real-time feedback capability, ClassFlow arms teachers with powerful insight for tailoring instruction to each learners' needs."

Teachers can access the free cloud-based ClassFlow platform from any major web browser to begin building interactive multi-media lessons. Student devices such as laptops and tablets are easily connected to the teacher's multi-media lessons through the ClassFlow Student app available on iOS, Android (News - Alert) and Windows 8 devices. Once connected, students can receive and annotate lesson material on their devices, respond to questions, create original material, even capture photos to send back to the teacher from their mobile device. Student contributions can then be displayed via a variety of "front-of-class" displays such as interactive whiteboards and flat panels and even integrated as part of the lesson content.

The new release of ClassFlow 2.0 will offer the following benefits for teachers:
