Promethean Planet is an online educator community that allows teachers to share resources to utilize Promethean technologies in the classroom. Promethean Planet features blogs, forums, lesson plans, lesson materials and training videos made by and for teachers.
Promethean offers a wide variety of educational technologies, such as interactive whiteboards, interactive tables, mobile learning options and student assessment systems. Promethean Planet allows educators to use Promethean technologies more thoroughly and effectively.
The blogs on PrometheanPlanet.com contain information for educators, such as the most popular lessons being downloaded from the website, ideas for math and science projects, classroom management tips and education-related current event updates. Educators can search the website resources for subject-specific and grade-leveled interactive whiteboard documents, which can be used in the classroom. Resources include games, homework assignments, lesson plans, instructional materials and assessments.
Promethean Planet is comparable to Smart Technologies' Smart Exchange, which offers similar resources for educators but is based on Smart Technologies' products. Smart Technologies produces interactive whiteboards, interactive tables, mobile learning options and document cameras. One of the most widely used technologies is the interactive whiteboard, which creates a touch-sensitive computer screen on a whiteboard-like surface using a projector and software, says the National Education Association.
