Suwanee, GA (PRWEB) June 29, 2010
Saving money, enhancing teacher instruction and boosting student learning are the primary concerns among K-12 school administrators, according to recent market research by PolyVision (http://www.polyvision.com), a leader in the development of interactive teaching and learning technology. eno one, a break-through classroom solution unveiled today by PolyVision at the International Society for Technology in Education’s (ISTE) 2010 conference, is designed to effectively address these three concerns and provide infinite ways to transform teaching and boost student success while minimizing monetary expenditures.
“Today, more than ever before, kids are part of a connected generation. However, classroom environments have not evolved to capture the needs of today’s learners,” says Bob Crain, PolyVision’s General Manager. “eno one meets the emerging needs of teachers and students alike through an interactive learning ecosystem that bridges traditional teaching methods with innovative instructional tools to inspire creativity, collaboration and engagement.”
The newest member of the eno interactive family, eno one is a comprehensive classroom solution that combines the eno classic interactive whiteboard, multi-media short-throw projector, lesson development software, and eno stylus in one package. Unlike any other classroom technology offering, eno one meets the emerging needs of school administrators by:
1. Helping Budgets Grow - The eno interactive whiteboard has an exclusive Forever Warranty™ on the surface offering the lowest total cost of ownership available. In addition, there are no cords, cables or hard connections to power, which significantly limits installation and ongoing energy costs. Featuring unprecedented flexibility, eno one can be moved within classrooms with the new mobile stand or can be utilized as a height-adjustable solution on the wall.

2. Helping Teachers Grow - eno one introduces unparalleled interactivity to teachers’ existing lesson plans. The open software platform integrates easily with existing instructional curriculum programs and has a simple user interface. And, with eno one, unlike any other all-in-one interactive whiteboard solution, teachers save precious teaching time because all components can be controlled at a central, easy-access control area on the board. Turning on/off the projector, browsing the web or accessing lesson content is controlled with the one touch of the eno icon strip, a magnetic strip which is always available and moveable.
3.Helping Students Grow - eno one immerses students in engaging content with digital multi-media and multi-user lessons, thereby increasing student interaction and collaboration. Interactive lessons delivered in an engaging learning environment have been proven to boost engagement and information retention, boosting student comprehension of key concepts and lessons.
4. Plus, Helping Our Earth Grow - eno not only reduces a school’s carbon footprint by operating without a power source, but it is also the only interactive whiteboard that is MBDC Cradle to CradleSM Silver certified and helps schools qualify for LEED® certification points. Additionally, eno whiteboards are made from recycled materials. No other interactive classroom technology developer is more dedicated to conserving natural resources or ensuring clean air in the classroom than PolyVision.
eno one is the latest addition to the eno family of products, which includes eno classic, the original interactive whiteboard combining a traditional dry-erase surface with interactivity; eno flex, a configurable classroom solution that combines a marker, chalk and/or tack surface; eno click, a magnetic-mounted whiteboard that can be instantly moved to another classroom; and eno mini slate, a mobile companion to the eno interactive whiteboard. eno one will be available to schools nationwide in the third quarter 2010.
