San Francisco, Calif. (June 27, 2016) – Touchjet, the first company to create touch technology with a standalone Android operating system, introduces Pond and Wave, to the education market at ISTE 2016 and SETDA's Emerging Technologies Forum. The announcement marks the official debut of these products, which support small-group collaboration and whole-class interactive learning, in the education space.
Pond is a touchscreen projector and Android PC all-in-one instructional tool that turns any surface into a giant touchscreen, enabling teachers and students to connect, collaborate, create and communicate in small groups in a blended learning environment.
