  PTHS 209 to Show a Preview of Technology and Enhanced Learning Environment Through the Promethean ActivBus  
     

Forest Park, IL...Proviso Township High Schools is constantly working to engage students with hands-on-learning that is fun, interesting, and interactive. As a part of that effort, next week, PTHS 209 will offer teachers, parents, and the Proviso community a comprehensive view of some of the technologies being used in District 209.

On Monday, September 12th, PTHS will be visited by the education technology Promethean ActivBus. The bus is a 36' long custom RV that is equipped with a model interactive classroom complete with duel pen boards and an interactive tool wall. It will demonstrate what an interactive classroom can look and sound like.

Over the past three years, PTHS 209 has implemented many ActivBus technologies into classrooms district wide. The bus will demonstrate a few of those technologies. It will help parents and the community understand what technology is being used in PTHS 209 and how to utilize technology to improve educational results.

“This is a great opportunity for teachers, staff, parents and community members to observe some of the awesome technologies in our buildings,” said PTHS 209 Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction, Dr. Cheryl Pruitt. “We have been working over the years to bring our vision of a more engaged, interactive, and successful classroom to life. Technology is helping us to build stronger bridges to learning and student engagement. The ActivBus will display some of the technologies that we are using in District 209. It will also introduce our parents and the community to new ways of incorporating technology in education.”

The ActivBus will arrive in Proviso Township High Schools on Monday, September 12, 2011. All Proviso faculty, staff, parents, and community members are welcome to board the ActivBus for an educational journey designed to maximize student and teacher potential. The first stop will be Proviso West High School from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. The bus will then visit Proviso East High School from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.—just before the Board of Education’s regularly scheduled meeting.
