Belkin Tablet Stage Named One of 20 Hottest EdTech Products at TCEA 2013 by K-12 TechDecisions
PLAYA VISTA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
today announced that its recently announced Tablet
Stage was named by K-12 TechDecisions as one of the 20
Hottest EdTech Products at TCEA (Texas Computer Education
Association) 2013 which took place last week. The Belkin Tablet Stage is
an ergonomic stand for tablets that makes classroom presentations easy
to deliver and, coupled with the Belkin Stage app for iPad, reduces the
expense of outfitting a digital classroom.
More than 400 companies at TCEA 2013 featured products that included
tablets, interactive projectors, a 3D document camera, iPad accessories
and interactive displays. Many of the products were designed to leverage
the use of mobile devices in the classroom.
Tablet Stage allows teachers to use their tablet as a document camera
and securely holds tablets with or without cases for effortless document
projection and convenient use. It has an adjustable platform and LED
lights and is compatible with devices from seven to 11 inches.
Tachers can also download the Belkin Stage app which allows them to
annotate directly over live video and images just as they would with an
interactive whiteboard. By displacing expensive and cumbersome
technology such as document cameras and interactive whiteboards, Belkin
Stage engages audiences with real-time video without the high cost.
"We are extremely pleased to have received this recognition from K-12
TechDecisions," said Jon Roepke, senior product manager, Business
Division, Belkin International. "As schools embrace the interactive
power of the iPad, they look for ways to make it more of a collaborative
tool. We designed the Belkin Tablet Stage and Stage app so that teachers
and administrators can integrate iPads into their curriculums in a way
that is engaging and makes both teaching and learning easier and more
fulfilling. Being honored as one of the 20 Hottest EdTech Products at
TCEA 2013 is a testament to the care and dedication we put into
understanding technology challenges in the classroom and developing
innovative products that enhance the learning environment."
The Belkin Stage app and the Tablet Stage are Belkin's latest solutions
designed to serve the growing needs of school districts and educators,
both in and beyond the classroom. For more information, please visit: http://www.belkincampaigns.com/edumobility/.
