ATLANTA -- June 27, 2014

Promethean, a global leader in education technology, announces its new
ClassFlow 2.0 update. ClassFlow, the “all-in-one” interactive lesson
orchestration platform for creating and delivering interactive multi-media
lessons across a connected learning environment, breathes a high level of
educational purpose into the various devices that many schools have purchased
and deployed in an effort to improve student engagement.

“ClassFlow assists teachers as they cultivate active learners with actionable
skills that prepare them for the future,” said Scott Cary, Chief Marketing and
Products Officer at Promethean. “ClassFlow harnesses all of the different
technology in the classroom and connects them into one environment that
educators can use to engage students, personalize instruction and foster
collaboration. With real-time feedback capability, ClassFlow arms teachers
with powerful insight for tailoring instruction to each learners’ needs.”

Teachers can access the free cloud-based ClassFlow platform from any major web
browser to begin building interactive multi-media lessons. Student devices
such as laptops and tablets are easily connected to the teacher’s multi-media
lessons through the ClassFlow Student app available on iOS, Android and
Windows 8 devices. Once connected, students can receive and annotate lesson
material on their devices, respond to questions, create original material,
even capture photos to send back to the teacher from their mobile device.
Student contributions can then be displayed via a variety of “front-of-class”
displays such as interactive whiteboards and flat panels and even integrated
as part of the lesson content.

The new release of ClassFlow 2.0 will offer the following benefits for
teachers:
