Get your interactive whiteboard out

Promethean PlanetCan’t get your Promethean Board working with Mavericks? I couldn’t either. Each time I have upgraded the MacBook OS I have had to fiddle around with the Promethean Board software and this Mavericks update has been the most challenging. The fix for Lion did not work on Mavericks. The active logo top left of the board was not calibrating the board .It was bringing up the file menu and that was all. My pen wouldn’t work. I removed all the software and downloaded the new version of the software on the Promethean site. I was really impressed with how nice it looked and how much better it had been set out. Drag and dropping files onto the flipchart was easy, searching for files was easy and inserting media was easy. My pen was still not working. You also discover you type straight onto the flipchart from the keyboard. I like that. The board image is clear and functional in a classroom setting. In the end the technician sorted it all out for me. She changed the display setting to 1280 x 800 and recalibrated the board from the menu in the top toolbar of my MacBook desktop. Technician magic! It was all working again. My year 8s were so happy in the lesson at the end of the day. They especially love it when we use the Promethean software and they can see my awful drawings as I teach them French. They love and value interactive learning which is why I was pleased to see the Promethean software looks better than ever. My year 8s seem to like to run a conversation with me as I teach and the Promethean software allows you to do that. They will pay attention to things on the board for a little while but past that point they want to be actively engaged and so you have to have  tools to teach them according to their needs. An interactive board does that. In actual fact it is making far better use of my resources than before because I can aggregate them on the board when I want to or just focus on one thing. It’s all easy and effective.
