PowerUpEDU Interactive Table solution is a multi-user interactive surface designed to promote student collaboration, engagement and student-led learning. The intuitive touch interface allows up to six users at once to access a wealth of ready-to-use educational activities, tools and resources. Small groups can work together to accomplish a single activity or work independently to contribute toward the completion of a group project.

Promethean’s ActivTable
Unlike most multi-touch technology tools, Promethean’s ActivTable has been designed specifically to help teachers quickly, easily and effectively foster collaborative classroom learning.

  • Navigate maps and roam the world’s oceans in geography, share virtual money in a math lesson or investigate creatures in science—the possibilities are endless.
  • Divide the class into groups and use the ActivTable as a learning center for targeted small group instruction and peer-to-peer learning.
  • Foster the development of communication, collaboration and group-led decision-making skills.

Promote inclusion for all, particularly children with special needs. ActivTable’s interface and activities facilitate peer learning and allow for differentiation, and this multi-touch table is wheelchair accessible.
