Boston, MA – June 28, 2016 – Boxlight and K-12 science technology pioneer Globisens, unveiled their newest offering, the GlobiLab app for Chromebook laptops, at the 2016 ISTE Conference & Expo in Denver, Colo. STEM educators attending the conference were among the first to experience the newly-launched app in action.
The genesis for the Chromebook app came after the company realized that while the Chromebook has emerged as a unique utility for the education sector in recent years, many users were prohibited by the limited number of available apps for this platform, particularly in science education.
“As part of our tradition of pioneering technologies, we’re offering one of the first science education apps for Chromebook,” said Dov Bruker, Globisens CEO. “We’ve adapted our proven and highly successful GlobiLab, making hands-on science available to the millions of Chromebook users.”
GlobiLab software communicates wirelessly with Labdisc multi-sensor compact devices, allowing for full setup and control of the devices. Graphical and meter displays present data in real time, enabling students to quickly measure their world and analyze data samples. The software’s sophisticated data analysis functions help students develop skilled scientific responses by enabling users to perform derivative and regression functions as well as view comprehensive statistics. GlobiLab also merges the latest sensor, Internet and satellite technologies so that students can plot measurement data over a Google map, allowing them to map local pollution or weather conditions and compare their data with other schools – opening the door for meaningful collaboration between learners all over the world.
“Globisens had already leveraged the revolutionary design of iOS and the versatility of Android to help educators and students make the most of GlobiLab,” said Pat Henry, Boxlight’s Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Now that Chromebook is proving to be an increasingly popular choice for education, especially in the United States, updating the app for Chromebook laptops allows for a lot more users and flexibility. Sophisticated but easy-to-use features as well as the software’s productivity suite and research facilities, mean millions of educators and students will have no trouble making use of this light-weight cloud-based platform.”
Established in April 2009, Globisens is an education technology company, focused on delivering the most modern pioneering solutions for K-12 science. In October 2011, Globisens launched the Labdisc all-in-one multi-disciplinary laboratory for every science field including physics, biology, chemistry, environmental studies and geography.
