Mimio, developer of the MimioClassroom™ family of interactive teaching technologies, today announced that Winslow Township School District will outfit its elementary schools with the MimioBoard™ device, a fixed interactive whiteboard powered by the award-winning MimioTeach™ bar. The district, based in New Jersey’s Camden County, will install more than 100 interactive whiteboards before classes resume in September.
The MimioBoard device is both interactive and dry-erasable, and easily transfers created interactive lessons to other classrooms via its removable MimioTeach bar. The board, which integrates seamlessly with all MimioClassroom teaching technologies, comes fully equipped with the renowned MimioStudio™ classroom software, and supports both wired and wireless operation.
“Our teachers love Mimio products. We currently use the MimioVote with the MimioStudio software,” said Darryl Scott, supervisor of educational technology, Winslow Township School District. “The addition of the MimioBoard made perfect sense not only in terms of empowering our teachers and students with the most relevant interactive technology, but also in light of its comprehensiveness.”
The advanced design of the MimioBoard device reflects the company’s commitment to research and development, as well as insightful educator feedback. Its durable ceramicsteel™ surface easily withstands the rigors of classroom activity. And while the MimioBoard device is a fixed installation, its interactive whiteboard component – the MimioTeach bar – can be detached from the whiteboard and transferred to other classrooms, where it can quickly and easily turn any ordinary whiteboard into an interactive whiteboard. The MimioBoard device can also be used with either short- or long-throw projectors, leveraging current projector inventory in schools and districts.
The portable MimioTeach bar and easy-to-use MimioStudio software make it simple for teachers to set up their interactive boards and begin employing a comprehensive range of interactive capabilities with their lessons in just minutes.
“No other product that we piloted offered the full package of affordability and ease of use,” Scott added. “And we’ll be able to adopt IWB-related best practices with no trouble, because it’s coupled with an extensive library of rich lesson plans and other professional support through its MimioConnect® teacher forum.”
