Andrew O’Brien, Principal of Accrington Academy and members of the Senior Leadership Team discuss how implementing Interactive Whiteboards and ActivExpression within their School has improved many aspects of Academy life. Listen to the pupils themselves and how using the latest Promethean technology has increased their aspirations and thoughts on being able to obtain instant feedback on results.
ActivExpression Student Voice:
Accrington Academy carry out a Student Voice survey every term with their students aged 11-18. In this short film, observe how 250 students answer 30 questions within 5mins on all aspects of Academy life using ActivExpression. The school feels that the main drivers of the survey is for the students to feel that they are part of the Academy and know that their pupils are happy to feedback their honest feelings as all responses are anonymous and confidential. When Ofsted visit and talk to the students, they appreciate that the students are listened to and what they say helps to change and shape the Academy, now and in the future. Hear what the pupils thoughts are.
Andrew Foster, Deputy Head of Little Hoole Primary School demonstrates the use of ActivExpression with Learning Clip software. Learning Clip provides Maths resources for Y1 – Y6. In this film, hear how Andrew uses the resources to assess his pupils strengths and weaknesses and the pupils’ comments with regards to using the learner response systems in their lessons.
ActiView is an essential part of the ActivClassroom. With its ability to work with or without an Interactive Whiteboard, this visual presenter is able to share documents for the whole class to see. Combined with ActivInspire software, images can be captured for future flipcharts, annotated or drawn over and saved to create custom libraries of real-life resources.
The ActivBoard 500 Pro system raises the standard for interactive display systems with its intuitive pen and touch capability. This new feature accommodates multiple users collaborating on a single task; enabling images to be scaled and rotated with finger touch in conjunction with real life ‘pen’ tasks, increasing engagement.
