“We are so grateful to the teachers and customers who have made SMART’s success possible," said Neil Gaydon, CEO of SMART Technologies. "It is their continued support, input and enthusiasm for the benefits that collaborative learning brings to the world that has enabled us to continue to stay on the cutting edge of innovation in the IFP space. This ensures that more and more classrooms have access to the very best technology on the market today, and SMART is thrilled to be recognized as a leader in making that happen."
Built with touch and collaboration technology, SMART’s interactive displays offer students and teachers a natural learning experience. For example, the new and improved SMART kapp iQ is specifically designed to deliver a complete, all-in-one classroom solution that provides educators with the flexibility to deliver lessons across a range of learning and instructional styles, including whole-class, small group and individual instruction.
SMART kapp iQ now offers educators simple, one-touch access to a full range of classroom applications, promising a fully integrated experience with student devices. Because all software is built right into the interactive display, both educators and students have access to the applications they use every day, all without the need to physically connect to an external computer. kapp iQ can be mounted on a mobile floor stand, meaning the latest advancements facilitate the creation of flexible learning environments both within and outside of classrooms – it’s ready for collaboration anywhere, without the inconvenience of managing cables and hardware.
