Upgraded Mimio software released for Common Core

10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM

To help students and teachers meet the increased rigor of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and the impending Common Core Assessments, Mimio is releasing the updated versions of its MimioStudio™ classroom software and MimioMobile™ application.

New MimioStudio

The platform for creating and presenting interactive lessons on all MimioClassroom™ products, MimioStudio software now allows students to practice for the open-response test items that will be part of the upcoming Common Core Assessments in 2014. Teachers can create open-response, short-essay, and numeric-response assessment questions, and students can respond using mobile devices equipped with the MimioMobile app. The MimioStudio software will automatically grade the multiple-choice, short-answer, and numeric responses.

New MimioMobile

While the previous version of the MimioMobile app works on the iPad, the new version also works on iPod touch devices, iPhones (4 and up), and Android tablets.

The MimioStudio Collaborate feature lets up to nine students collaborate on a MimioStudio activity using any mix of new MimioPad tablets and mobile devices running the MimioMobile app. Each individual collaboration space is shown on the interactive whiteboard at the front of the classroom. Teachers can hand off control of the interactive whiteboard to any mobile device equipped with the app, and can unilaterally retake control. Students can work individually or in small groups, while each controls his or her own MimioStudio Notebook page.

Schools purchase one annual license for a teacher’s classroom computer or laptop, and every student with an Android tablet or Apple device will be able to interact with the lesson being taught on the interactive whiteboard, at no additional cost.
