Mimio, developer of the MimioClassroom™ family of interactive teaching technologies, is introducing three new tools that allow simultaneous use of iPads, other manufacturers’ interactive displays and MimioClassroom products. The new MimioMobile™ application for the iPad, the MimioStudio™ 10 classroom software and MimioPad™ wireless pen tablet are scheduled to ship Feb. 28, 2013.
With a single MimioMobile license for the teacher’s computer or laptop, every student with an iPad can interact with lessons displayed on the classroom’s interactive whiteboard.
The latest version of MimioStudio 10 software
includes a new Collaborate feature that automatically divides up to nine devices into collaborative windows on a whiteboard and allows each group to use their individual window at the same time.
The MimioPad wireless pen tablet
offers shortcut keys that give teachers one-touch access to the most common functions of MimioStudio 10 software, and it works with any interactive content.
The MimioPad tablet works only with MimioStudio 10 software. Like the original tablet, it allows teachers and students to collaborate on interactive whiteboard lessons up to 30 feet from a computer, but the new model can be used with both Mimio and non-Mimio interactive whiteboards, or as a stand-alone whiteboard controller with MimioStudio 10 software and a projector.
