Promethean’s Activboard and Activstudio software and family bring large and small interactive drawing surfaces and sound educational content and pedagogy to teachers and learners. Promethean is about interactive surfaces and software that enable whole class interaction Better image here Elluminate Live! extends instructional resource and student interaction across locations in real-time, using the Internet. Elluminate is about live, cross platform web collaboration designed by and for educators. Engage more students in more ways:  Engage more students in more ways Your whiteboard now crosses place and time to bring students and ideas together in ways that were not previously possible. With the combination of interactive whiteboards and live web collaboration, you are limited only by your imagination. Add creativity, innovation, and excitement to your teaching and learning environment. Image: I’d really like an image of a teacher reaching “in” to the whiteboard with an Elluminate UI on it and reaching out to the world… But too complex for this draft. Together, they change the education equation!:  Together, they change the education equation! This short booklet describes four basic scenarios where the combined power of Promethean and Elluminate combined exceeds what each could do alone. Then, it describes how you can implement some of these scenarios. 6 Getting your Promethean Activboard product and your free Elluminate vRoom 7 A general overview of four application scenarios 7 Room-to-room learning community 9 Bring in a guest speaker from anywhere in the world 11 Make a parity classroom accessible to a remote student 14 Capture classroom activity for later use 15 Share your ideas! 16 Let’s do it! 17 Connect three classrooms 18 Bring a community leader into your classroom from a remote location 19 Occupational therapy and handwriting 20 Next steps Obtaining Promethean and Elluminate Products:  Obtaining Promethean and Elluminate Products http://www.prometheanworld.com Main site: http://www.elluminate.com FREE version: http://www.getvroom.com Room-to-room learning communities:  Room-to-room learning communities Whether a classroom you want to partner with is down the hall, across town, or across the planet, Promethean and Elluminate together enable you to extend visual, audio, and kinesthetic activity and interaction – in real time – across locations. What you need to make three locations morph into one: An Activboard at attached to an internet connected Mac or a PC A free, three location Elluminate vRoom account A microphone and your Activeboard speakers. (A USB or Firewire webcam is optional.) Instructor and student leaders Educationally sound activities What it looks like: Activboard image with Elluminate screen shot Room of people Activboard image with Elluminate screen shot Room of people Activboard image with Elluminate screen shot Room of people Room-to-room learning communities:  Room-to-room learning communities What you get (well, some of a much longer list, anyway): Students in their seats and at the front of the room interacting with people they may never have met at all, much less in a classroom environment Collaborative problem solving at the board The possibility of open captioning interactions for students with hearing issues The ability to record these interactions for later student, instructor, or parent review* Instructional resource shared across locations that may not have them (for example, the Japanese language teacher in the district is only available for a certain period of time – but now she can be shared across multiple buildings at the same time) Multiple channels of communication and instruction – visual, textual, and aural Student teams can be broken across locations Since the Internet connections are not per-minute, long length sessions where rooms are connected for a morning – or all day – can foster ongoing student and instuctor interactions A really cool platform to play competitive educational games where students compete from the desktop or from the front of the room – against students from other locations * Recording is not available with the free vRoom but with paid versions of Elluminate Live! Bring in a guest speaker from anywhere in the world:  Bring in a guest speaker from anywhere in the world Does someone’s Mom have a cool job? Does a Dad want to teach a math lesson from his office or his lab at the University? Do you know a VIP who is willing to speak to your class, but can’t afford the travel time? What you need to bring in a guest speaker: An Activboard at attached to an internet connected Mac or a PC A free, three location Elluminate vRoom account A microphone and your Activeboard speakers. (A USB or Firewire webcam is optional.) A remote speaker with an internet connected Mac or PC and a webcam and a headset (and optional Activslate) The ability to handle the excitement of meeting cool people and showing students real-world leaders live, and giving them individualized attention. What it looks like: Activboard image with Elluminate screen shot with guest image on video window. Room of people sitting near the board in a circle. Art of a person at a pc Screen shot of Elluminate with the person on the vid camera Guest speakers:  Guest speakers What you get (don’t forget that the guest speaker gets a lot too!): Students who learn to write better inviting famous (and not so famous) people to speak in their classes Oh, and they will learn to write thank you notes as well Involving parents and community leaders to participate in the day-to-day activities of teaching and learning when they would have otherwise not been able to Building a local repository of recordings of these interactions for later use* Multiple channels of communication and instruction – visual, textual, and aural Create national and international real-time “web pals” and “blog pals” where real-time interaction is mixed into the other kinds of communication Turn your own students into “guest speakers” who present at other rooms and schools Virtual field trips Meeting the cast of a play Watching a doctor work * Recording is not available with the free vRoom but with paid versions of Elluminate Live! Parity classrooms for remote students:  Parity classrooms for remote students Is a student at home recovering from a long medical issue? Is a student home for just week with an illness? Is a teacher in the hospital for surgery and wants to teach some lessons instead of the substitute a few times a week? What you need to bring a remote learner or teacher into your classroom for parity interaction An Activboard at attached to an internet connected Mac or a PC A free, three location Elluminate vRoom account A microphone and your Activeboard speakers. (A USB or Firewire webcam is optional.) A remote student with an internet connected Mac or PC and a webcam and a headset (and optional Activslate) Many hospitals have internet connections available for patients. And many recovering students have home internet access. What it looks like: Activboard image with Elluminate screen shot with guest image on video window. Room of people sitting near the board in a circle. Art of a person at a pc Screen shot of Elluminate with the person on the vid camera and an Activslate Remote students:  Remote students What you get (for a lot of people, not just the student): Reduced costs by not needing to bring in tutors for the remote student as often or at all Social interaction that would otherwise wane is fostered between remote student and classmates A student with a short-term at-home illness can keep up with classmates with minimal “setup time” needed by any school IT people * Recording is not available with the free vRoom but with paid versions of Elluminate Live! Capture classroom activity for later use:  Capture classroom activity for later use Do parents want to review classroom activities? Is a student being called out of the room (or homebound) and you want to let them watch the full classroom interaction? For professional development, does instructor interaction have to be critiqued? Does the unfolding of student solution to a problem need to be shown to a parent or other educator – not just as a “result” but as a process? What you need to record whole class activity for later playback: An Activboard at attached to an internet connected Mac or a PC A full license of Elluminate Live! that allows recording (not the free vRoom) A microphone. (A USB or Firewire webcam is optional.) Later playback on any Internet connected Mac or PC with speakers What it looks like: Activboard image with Elluminate screen shot with guest image on video window. Room of people sitting near the board in a circle. Shot of person at mac “watching” an Elluminate recording Capture classroom activity for later use:  Capture classroom activity for later use What you get: Help students review for exams Enable students with disabilities to review classroom activity later as many times as needed Capture classroom best practices Share new instructional techniques with other professionals This is not an exhaustive list.:  This is not an exhaustive list. Share your ideas. People want to know! http://www.prometheanplanet.com http://www.elluminate.com/community Let’s do it!:  Let’s do it! OK, so we’ve looked at a few conceptual overviews of the ways in which Promethean and Elluminate can be used together. Now, let’s actually look at steps of how to make three very real and doable ideas happen, step by step. Prerequisites: 1. You have your Activboard set up and running 2. Your PC or Mac is connected to the internet and you have a microphone and speakers (or microphone and headsets) up and running 3. You’ve signed up for and tested your free Elluminate vRoom Let’s do it! Connect three classrooms:  Let’s do it! Connect three classrooms The Classroom A teacher creates a free Elluminate vRoom account and sends invitations to Classrooms B and C Classroom A opens an activity on a flipchart Classroom A starts application sharing of the flipchart Classroom A leads the activity with writing and audio and text chat. Classroom B (or C) has something to add by raising their hand. Classroom A gives them control of the microphone and application. Classroom B (or C) takes the leadership role Classroom A takes control of the pen back when other class is done Classroom C wants to make a point, so they raise their hand. a. They perform a “web tour” and show Classrooms A and B a point from a web site At the end of the exercise, Classroom A closes the flipchart Classroom A uses Elluminate to send the completed flipchart file to Classrooms B and C Let’s do it! Bring a community leader into class as a “remote guest”:  Let’s do it! Bring a community leader into class as a “remote guest” A teacher invites a leader to join the classroom “virtually” at a specified time. Outside of the classroom time, the teacher sets up a test time where the guest (or his or her assistant) tests Elluminate vRoom. The guest will need a headset and a microphone The guest can, optionally, have a webcam The guest should be prepared to share an application, show some slides, or show some web pages. (The teacher can even control everything and let the guest “just speak.”) When the time comes, the guest joins the Classroom’s vRoom The guest presents some slides, shows their video camera (optional) The students want to show the speaker some of their own work and get comments The students show some slides. a drawing, and their web site The students push a Quicktime video file to the guest The guest, thoroughly impressed, comments and critiques The students, suitably impressed, show their parents the recording of the presentation when they get home (or in the public library).* * Recording is not available with the free vRoom but with paid versions of Elluminate Live! Let’s do it! Occupational therapy / handwriting lesson:  Let’s do it! Occupational therapy / handwriting lesson In the classroom: The student, the occupational therapist, a second student who is helping model handwriting grip, posture, and penmanship The second student can be in the same physical classroom for modeling The second (or a third) student can be in a remote classroom or using an Activeslate so the ink can just seem to “apprear” on Activeboard Second student writes a few letters or a short sentence in a thick and darker pen color Therapist changes color to lighter color and ink to thinner line First student writes on top of the modeling writing Instructor “drags” first student’s writing to the side and deletes modeled writing Student now prints out what they “traced” for portfolio (and for pride) Exercise can be iterated with modeled writing “above” the first students writing area. Eventually no model is used at all. Optionally, entire interaction including student and therapist audio is recorded* – student can review, parents can review. This makes the “portfolio” recording a and end-to-end record rather than just an end-product. * Recording is not available with the free vRoom but with paid versions of Elluminate Live!
