Activtable Part 2


 Our students explore the Activtable...we have found a couple of things.  One, this table is incredible!  Two, it is important to put one student as lead student to read the help screen and the "rules" of the activity. Three, it is important for us to give up the control of knowing everything about the activity...the students can explore and teach each other and we get so much further by doing this.  Tosha and I are able to facilitate other activities in the classroom and as we check back in at the table the students can show us what they have discovered.  





My oldest son (college) stopped by our classrooms last week and had to try out the table...he was instantly engaged and amazed by this technology and all that it offers to students.


















The table seems to be the perfect match for our makerspace time. It opens up another space for students to collaborate and interact. This is quite a piece of technology for our students to use.   The learning and discussions taking place is truly amazing!  This is the link to Promethean, if you would like to know more about this table:  https://www.prometheanworld.com/products/interactive-table/activtable
