Promethean Tip

I learned a new trick the other day from a teacher in Pickens County.  There are many times with the new Activ+2 boards that you are writing at the bottom of the screen in a flipchart and students cannot see it because is too low on the board.  One remedy to this problem is to set up each page in your flipchart to be 1 X 2 pages long when the flipchart is initially being created.  To do this all you need to do is to create a new “custom” flipchart. Creating a new flipchart

Click flipchart

Move the left scroll bar down to the second notch (or more…but note…I would not move it down more than 2 or 3 notches or else it will scroll too fast in the flipchart).

Click ok

Once you fill in the flipchart with notes,  the flipchart becomes scrollable.  You may scroll the flipchart up to where the students can see it.  This is especially useful if I was teaching math and had my whole page full of information.  I could then scroll the page up higher on the board so that students could see.
