Bulgarian Teachers Got Their First Ever Interactive Presentations Creation Training

Multimedia knowledge publisher Sirma Media has for the first time in Bulgaria presented interactive console eBeam ENGAGE and its usage in a combination with online presentation platform PREZI. The event took place on March 24 and 25, 2012, in front of maths teachers, who represent the Mathematicians’ Union from the municipalities of Kyustendil and Blagoevgrad. More than 50 teachers were trained to take advantage of the features of the new solutions.

eBeam ENGAGE is a latest-generation interactive product meant for education. For the first time a mobile solution for an interactive board includes speakers, a wireless keyboard with a touchpad and a scroller, and free software to share content on the board in real time across 10 class rooms.

Sirma Media is an official representative of eBeam in Bulgaria, and ENGAGE is already used at Hristo Botev Primary School in the city of Dobrich. ENGAGE works on every white board or flat surface, and it can create an interactive image of up to 8 meters – an enormous working area.

PREZI is an innovative system which lets users create and present all sorts of projects, presentations and learning materials, and it is very easy to use. It is Internet-based and offers free registrations. The system is suitable for the creation of student projects, home works, and papers, for unconventional presentation of lessons, for extracurricular activities, etc.
During the training it was demonstrated how several people can work simultaneously on the same topic or project. PREZI lets many users collaborate at the same time, even if they are physically in different cities or countries. The system can be used from personal computers, as well as smartphones and tablets.

“Interactive presentations and interactive boards create new opportunities to co-work, and they facilitate the usage of multimedia in teaching subjects, which makes lessons much easier to remember. These solutions in practice set up a new way of thinking and give people new ways to engage students, thus letting students form useful habits of working in a digital environment, which will be handy throughout their entire lives,” said Alexander Angelov, who is in charge of the development of the educational products at Sirma Media.
