The LPS Promethean Users Group (PUG) is working to create a sustainable “community” of Promethean users supporting each others’ operational and instructional use of Promethean boards, clickers, slates, etc. Teachers currently using Promethean tools and hoping to grow in their effectiveness at using those tools for increased engagement and learning in their classrooms are welcome to attend these sessions. Contact Tim Hahn in Computing Services for more information and / or become a member of the “PUG” listserv below.
