your classroom experience
Use the Hive digital whiteboard to create your digital ink, handwriting & shape recognition. Choose from different colour backgrounds, annotate onto any file type or import a video. The included mini-apps can be used to help you create an engaging innovative delivery style to keep the attention of your class.
Students use their own tablet or laptop device to connect to a Nexus class you start. With your permission they can them contribute content on the front of class screen from their tablet or laptop for everyone to see. Hosts can send files to participants and receive files from participants.
Users can search SMART Exchange and Classflow for keywords, thumbnail results appear directly in the Hive Cloud panel and users can drag content from here directly onto the page. Connect to your Dropbox and Google Drive account so you can drop your cloud files into the page.
Hive opens SMART .notebook & Promethean files with all the layering and animations intact. For teachers who have a bank of resources they want to continue using – Hive makes the transition easy. Also oprn your Word, PowerPoint and PDF documents with ease.
During a Nexus collaboration session you can start times assessment or feedback sessions. These can be yes/no, multiple choice or essay questions. Once the allocated time is finished, Hive will automatically collate the answers and produce the results in a pie chart. This is great for identifying weak areas that may need a refresher.
Teachers love this mini-app. Work on the main page and then pull down the ‘pull string’ to access a simple flipchart area where you can make additional notes you can refer during class.
Record all interactions with the screen including audio. Create a resource bank of recordings for evidencing, revision or to post to your VLE to help absent students keep up. Also useful for creating easy to follow instructions for colleagues.
With two taps you can create a slide show of pages you’ve created in Hive. Perfect for creating a scrolling notice board or digital signage during parents evenings/open days.
Replay a page you have created from the start. Great for going over concepts or teaching you have just discussed without having to preset up a recording session. Page replay in real time or faster.
