ISTE 2024 – Discussing Promethean’s path to upgrades

Upgrade Your Learning Experience: Promethean’s Path to Sustainability and Innovation

In the dynamic world of educational technology, Promethean stands out as a beacon of innovation, particularly with their interactive displays. At Twotrees Technologies, we understand the importance of long-term investments in technology, and Promethean’s upgrade path for their interactive displays exemplifies this philosophy.

The Power of Upgrades

Promethean’s interactive displays are not just a one-time purchase; they are a long-term investment in the future of education. Unlike other technologies that become obsolete as they age, Promethean offers an upgrade path that ensures their displays evolve alongside technological advancements. Customers are not bound by the processor built into their display. As the display ages, the processor can be upgraded, allowing the panel to remain in place and in use.

A Conversation with Promethean

In a recent interview at the ISTE conference, Matt from Promethean shared insights into their upgrade strategy. “We’re giving districts the ability to meet them where they’re at,” Matt explained. Whether it’s security concerns or the desire for the latest technology, Promethean’s approach is flexible. Devices can be upgraded easily, ensuring security and up-to-date browsers1.

Security and Choice

With no operating system on the panel itself, Promethean’s displays offer unparalleled security. Users can plug in their OS of choice, whether it’s a Chromebox, an OPS-M, or a teacher’s laptop. This flexibility allows for a secure and managed system that’s always up-to-date1.

Consistency Across the Board

For schools that have rolled out technology over several years, Promethean ensures a consistent interface across all devices. This uniformity is crucial for training and usability, making it easier for teachers to adopt and integrate technology into their classrooms1.

Investing in the Future

Promethean’s commitment to sustainability is evident in their efforts to extend the life of their products. “It’s an investment in your investment,” Matt stated, highlighting the cost-effectiveness and environmental benefits of upgrading rather than replacing. Promethean is working on future products that will continue this trend, ensuring that their hardware remains supported and up-to-date1.


At Twotrees Technologies, we believe in the power of technology to transform education. Promethean’s upgrade path for their interactive displays is a testament to their dedication to sustainability, security, and innovation. By choosing Promethean, schools are not just purchasing a product; they are investing in a partnership that will grow and adapt to meet the ever-changing needs of education.
