The Promethean Activities Player provides an easy way to access pre-created ActivInspire activities and engage students on an Elements Series ActivPanel. Simply save ActivInspire activities to a USB, insert the USB into the ActivPanel, then access the Promethean Activities Player from the Locker.

Users may open an activity for students to play in fullscreen mode.

Users may also open a second activity for a multi-user experience. This could be the same activity, or a different one. Multiple students can practice skills and concepts simultaneously.
