Interacting with IWB using ProConnect app!
I am a massive fan of apps like Socrative and Plickers to assess children's understanding and evaluate their work. Another app/tool I have discovered recently is ProConnect. This FREE app links with the ProWise Presenter software. The software is designed for use with ProWise screens, however, the presenter tool works on any Mac or PC so can be displayed on any IWB. The presenter tool is free and is similar to other IWB software -
What drew me to this tool was the app available on iPads. Children can log into your ProConnect room and then engage in a variety of activites -
There are some fantastic maths games where the children have to answer questions as quick as they can to finish first. I also love the word cloud tool where every child in the class can contribute live to a whole class word bank of vocabulary. You can also create a whole class Mindmap which would be a great way to start or finish a topic.
Once you set up one of the activities, a room code will generate so the children can log in using the ProConnect app on their iPads -
It is well worth a look as it is completely FREE to set up an account for the ProWise Presenter tool! There is also a ProQuiz tool that allows you to create a quiz that can be shared using the ProConnect app.
Here is a quick video about the Presenter tool -
Would love to know what you think and how you use it in class!
