Little is known about the life of Greek philosopher Heraclitus. However, his stance on change has been well recorded in his quote, “The only thing that is constant is change.”
In the education space, this quote thoroughly applies as curriculum, standards, state testing procedures, and technology are continually updated. To keep up with teachers on the leading edge, there came a time for Promethean Planet to evolve.
At Promethean, we are proud to look back and note that Promethean Planet first came about in 2006. Over a decade ago this amazing teacher community was developed by teachers for teachers. The bulk of Promethean Planet’s teacher members were users of Promethean’s Interactive Whiteboards and ActivInspire. However, with the rise of technology integration in the classroom, the expansion of BYOD, and 1:1 initiatives, it became more apparent that it was time to catch up with these trends. ClassFlow was born when Promethean decided to combine the best of Promethean Planet and ActivInspire to create a solution for the modern classroom.
ClassFlow comprises a marketplace and a lesson delivery platform, which offers both online and offline lesson delivery capabilities.
Inside the ClassFlow Marketplace, you will find a variety of free and premium K-12 educational content. Users familiar with Flipcharts can still find those in addition to multimedia content such as 3D models, simulations, PDFs, and PowerPoint files.
Software Online and Offline
ClassFlow is Promethean’s next-generation platform for lesson delivery. While ClassFlow offers a fantastic cloud-based solution that is device-agnostic and is free for everyone, some classrooms often battle with internet connection issues. ClassFlow Desktop is the answer for teachers that have the desire to present interactive lessons offline. This solution may be downloaded and trialed by anyone for 90 days. If you wish to use ClassFlow Desktop beyond the trial period, you can attend our upcoming webinar series to learn more.
The ClassFlow Support Team offers help in many different ways. The easiest way to get help while using ClassFlow is to chat with the team directly by clicking on the mint green question mark in the upper right corner of ClassFlow. Other forms of support can be found on the support page.
