Tech & Learning, a magazine focused on the acquisition and application of educational technology in K-12 classrooms, named the eInstruction Mobi(TM) mobile interactive whiteboard one of the "Best New Products" in its 2010 Awards of Excellence recognition program.
Tech & Learning's Awards of Excellence program, which has recognized creative educational technology solutions for nearly 30 years, selected the top 21st century classroom tools out of more than 140 technology submissions. The 78 winning submissions were judged by the magazine's editorial team and a panel of industry experts based on quality and effectiveness, ease of use, creative use of technology, and suitability for use in an educational environment.
"We are flattered that experts in our industry have chosen Mobi(TM) to receive this prestigious Tech & Learning award," said eInstruction CEO Steve Kaye, who accepted the award at the recent Texas Computer Education Association Conference in Austin, TX. "Educators constantly tell us the importance of being able to move around the classroom as they deliver a lesson and engage their students. This award proves that Mobi(TM) is a trusted solution for effectively meeting the needs of educators."
Starting at only $349, the eInstruction Mobi(TM) mobile interactive whiteboard has proven to be an effective and affordable alternative to a fixed interactive whiteboard. Mobi's Workspace(TM) software allows users to annotate, highlight, and interact with engaging, multi-media lesson content projected onto any surface, including pull down screens present in nearly every K-12 classroom. When used with Mobi(TM) Learners, Workspace(TM) provides a multiuser platform, which is exclusive to eInstruction. The multiuser capabilities allow up to nine students to simultaneously contribute content on one display, creating a collaborative and student-centered learning environment. Additionally, when used with eInstruction's CPS(TM) student response system, Mobi's built-in color LCD screen instantly displays student responses allowing educators to receive real-time formative assessments privately.
