LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Educators looking for ways to have students engage with lessons, videos, web pages, and class objectives all at the same time in an interactive, ultra-wide collaborative space need to look no further than MimioSpace™, the latest interactive offering from leading K-12 technology provider, Boxlight Corporation (Nasdaq: BOXL) (“Boxlight”). The newly launched, interactive collaborative Touch 360° system provides extraordinary functionality that significantly increase the number of students able to work together at the front of the classroom. The system creates a 32-touch interactive area on a touch board that spans almost 11 ft. wide and 4 ft. tall.
The touch board also doubles as a dry erase surface, so teachers can retain valuable whiteboard space in the classroom. An accompanying ultra-wide laser projector creates bright, clear images in brilliant colors on the 134-inch (diagonal size) interactive surface. The system's Touch 360° interactivity ensures that whether students write or manipulate objects above, below, or parallel to one another, their touch experience will remain uninterrupted.
“It’s our mission to remove any and all limits on students working together,” said Mark Elliott, Boxlight’s CEO. “MimioSpace provides the space for students to work collaboratively like never before. No feeling boxed in by limited space, no hassle of minimizing one or more windows to find another. Everything you need is easy to access and see.”
The MimioSpace system includes the award-winning MimioStudio™ classroom software, which connects all Boxlight products so using other tools—from the document camera to the pen tablet—is quick and easy. MimioStudio software allows educators to not only create interactive lessons and collaborative activities – it even gives teachers the ability to import existing lesson plans from other interactive software platforms. It permits teachers to perform real-time formative assessment. Additionally, the MimioSpace touch board comes with three MimioMobile™ connections for the lifetime of the product -- so that in conjunction with MimioStudio -- can enable collaboration and assessment on almost any mobile device from anywhere in the classroom.
Elliott concluded, “whether it’s whole-class learning, small-group collaboration, formative assessment or STEM-based learning, we offer the services, software, and hardware that enables teachers to easily and effectively enhance student outcomes and build essential skills like critical thinking, greater collaboration, strong communication and self-motivated creativity that today’s workplace demands.”
