RESOURCES FOR INTERACTIVE WHITEBOARDS
 

ACTIVINSPIRE FLIPCHARTS

Share and find ActivInspire flipcharts from educators around the world at Classflow - you'll need to create a free account. Please note that Promethean Planet is now Classflow - but the Promethean accounts will still work.

The Promethean Planet Support Team had a resource pack that they encouraged new users to download. You can get it from the FISD Shared Google Drive HERE if you are logged into your FISD Google account.
Classflow also has game template flipcharts that you can edit to fit your curriculum area or content.
 
NAVIGATING THE NEW CLASSFLOW MARKETPLACE - "Help! I can't find resources anymore!"

How to find flipcharts in the new site:
 
1. Once you're in your account in Classflow, click "Marketplace" in the top menu bar.
2. Under "Refine by" in the left-hand box, select: Price = free, File format  = flipchart, and any subject or grade level parameters you wish to set.
3. Enter your search term(s) in the search box and hit <enter>.
4. When you select a flipchart, it automatically gives you a preview (although it looks a little different). Click the > next to the image to move through the slides.
5. When you find a flipchart you like, click "Add to My Resources".
6. Open the "My Resources" tab in the top menu bar, and from there you can download, print, or convert from a flipchart to a Classflow lesson pack. You can also create folders to organize your Classflow resources, and connect your "My Resources" account to your Google Drive to upload lessons from there as well. (It doesn't seem to download straight to your Drive, however.)
