Promethean have released version 1.2 of their ActivInspire software. This version of the software brings Promethean back to the top of the pile as the very best IWB software money can buy. The main (and very annoying) flaw of the previous version was that they had gotten rid of the resource finder feature. This was such a big deal that I didn’t bother upgrading from ActivPrimary.
However, Promethean’s new version includes the excellent search engine and now I’ll be downloading it before Monday morning!
One other cool feature that Promethean have somehow managed to squeeze on is the ability for two students to work on the board at the same time. Other new features that don’t really matter to me are the ability to import PDF files and to get images from a scanner or visualiser. This is all mightily impressive – if only they would invent a way to interact with your finger, I’d be buying their boards as well as their software. Well done Promethean…you’ve listened well!
