Getting Started 


ActivInspire allows users to create interactive presentations that can be manipulated in different ways to engage students.  Some of the tools included in the program can be used to assess student learning (like the express poll and containers) and manage classroom activities (through tools such as a timer, spotlight, and ticker-tape). ActivInspire will be part of the image loaded on all BCPS devices including student devices.
