Flipcharts or ActivLessons
Core Learning has started to re-deploy its courseware lessons in different software formats proprietary to interactive whiteboard suppliers. The benefits are in optimizing the presentation features to enable the IWB’s software tools and to enable hand-held voting devices for whole class feedback on the success of the lesson presentation. In some instances, additional instructional content in the form of interactive activities and review steps add additional instructional value. There are presently two major collections of flipchart lessons developed in Promethean’s ActivInspire software:
- Core English Essentials ActivLesson Collection: 74 lessons derived from the English Grammar II and III Essentials courses. Click here
for a list of English ActivLessons.
- Core Health Essentials ActivLesson Collection: 85 lessons derived from Core Health I, II, and III. Click here for a list of Health ActivLessons.
