Cambridge, MA – August 1, 2013 – To assist teachers in delivering interactive lessons that infuse learning environments with sophisticated, engaging content, Ignacio (CO) School District 11-JT will install the MimioProjector™ interactive projector in all 75 classrooms district–wide, as new schools are being built during the next two years. The newest technology in the MimioClassroom™ family of products, the interactive MimioProjector device rounds out Mimio’s ability to provide affordable technologies that address the collaborative display needs of every classroom.

“Ignacio educators are committed to creating technology-enabled learning environments in support of their focus on academic rigor across the curriculum,” said Mimio General Manager Manny Perez. “Their large installation into their district classrooms demonstrates their commitment to reach today’s students with tools and resources that are relevant and engaging.”

The MimioProjector device is an affordable and easy-to-use solution that includes built-in tracking technology, a stereo amplifier, speakers, and the award-winning MimioStudio™ classroom software. Teachers can quickly and easily create multimedia lessons and then display those lessons, graphics, and images on a dry- erase board or any other flat surface. An accompanying pen or stylus allows users to manipulate MimioStudio software’s projected images. Dual-pen operations allow two students to simultaneously interact with the same projected image, increasing teachers’ capacity for including collaborative learning and small-group instruction in their classrooms.

In a recent independent review of the MimioProjector device conducted by Projector Central staff, the interactive projector scored a perfect 5 out of 5 in ‘features’ and 4 out of 5 in each of the other three areas: performance, ease of use, and value. The complete review can by found at www.ProjectorCentral.com

“There are many reasons why we like the MimioProjector – it’s easy to use, it brings multimedia functionality to teachers’ lessons, and it’s affordable. I can outfit several classrooms for the price of just one of their competitors’ systems,” said Brian Crane, technology director for the Ignacio School District. “It’s that ‘you know it when you see it factor,’ where interactivity is going to enhance the lessons – they come alive. Students won’t just be talked at; they will be participating, collaborating, and learning at a much higher level. It’s going to provide real excitement when the schools open in the fall.”

The MimioProjector interactive projector seamlessly integrates with other MimioClassroom products – including the MimioVote™ assessment, MimioView™ document camera, and MimioPad™ wireless pen tablet – through the intuitive MimioStudio software, eliminating the need for additional software training as educators expand their interactive classroom technology.
