Promethean has announced the launch of Promethean Planet, a free collaborative Web portal designed to help K-12 educators, administrators, and parents maximize the use of interactive learning technologies.

Intended as a comprehensive online source for educators, Promethean Planet provides searchable information to help educators maximize the use of interactive technology in the classroom. These high-quality resources include detailed maps and scientific diagrams. Graphic organizers have also been incorporated in various formats.

Searchable lessons organized by grade and subject, videos, and Weblinks are ready to download for use with Promethean's Activstudio and Activprimary lesson-development software. Best practices are highlighted in the monthly "Teacher Feature" that will focus on how educators are optimizing teaching with interactive technology in their classrooms.

Promethean Planet features an online forum where teachers can interact with other teachers and share experiences and lesson materials. Online technical support from Promethean is also available.

Promethean Planet supports Promethean's Activclassroom, which offers teachers thousands of standards-based resources as part of the Activstudio lesson development software. Student centered lessons take place on Activboard interactive whiteboards. Full class participation is provided through handheld Activote formative assessment devices.

Registration, membership, and access to the online resources and forum at Promethean Planet is free to all administrators, educators, teachers, and students. For further information on Promethean Planet, visit the site at
