“With Mobi View, we wanted to do more for teachers by enabling them to quickly and easily access, control and interact with their instructional materials while fully involving their students at the same time. - Steve Kaye, eInstruction CEO
Denton, TX (PRWEB) January 10, 2011
eInstruction, an educational technology pioneer, is meeting market demand for interactivity and mobility with the release of Mobi View, the industry’s first mobile interactive whiteboard with an integrated touch screen display. At $449USD, Mobi View™ delivers the full functionality of a fixed interactive whiteboard in a handheld device, while greatly simplifying control of lesson delivery through an interactive touch screen display located just above the writing area.
An independent survey conducted by Creative Research Services, Inc. shows that 9 out of 10 educators prefer to move around the classroom while they teach, something they can’t do with a fixed interactive whiteboard. Mobi View’s enhanced features allow teachers to be 100 percent mobile without need for a fixed whiteboard or access to a computer for the duration of their lessons. This mobility enables seamless, efficient, and engaging lesson delivery, creating more teachable moments and more interactivity with students.
“We are continuing to innovate based on feedback we receive from educators. In the year since we launched the original Mobi™, we have heard time and time again that mobility and collaboration are changing the classroom experience for both students and teachers,” said Steve Kaye, CEO of eInstruction. “With Mobi View, we wanted to do more for teachers by enabling them to quickly and easily access, control and interact with their instructional materials while fully involving their students at the same time. Mobi View provides all of this and more in an affordable, mobile device that’s a real pleasure to use.”
According to a research analysis by Interactive Educational Systems Design, Inc., fixed interactive whiteboards have been, in some cases, associated with teacher-centered instructional methods that reduce student involvement in instruction. Mobi View™ affords the same benefits as fixed interactive whiteboards, while removing the tendency of the fixed board to result in lecture-style teaching.
“Using the Mobi has allowed our teachers to come out from behind the desk and move freely throughout the classroom, truly creating a student-centered learning environment,” said Andy Kuhl, Director of Secondary Curriculum and Instruction in Wilkes-Barre Area School District. “We are observing that students are more engaged in the learning process.”
Mobi View™ introduces students and teachers to improved teaching and learning experiences through the following benefits:
- The full functionality of a fixed interactive whiteboard at a fraction of the cost. With Mobi View™, any wall or projector screen instantly turns into an interactive display.
- One-touch access to annotation tools, favorite files, folders, applications, websites, and keyboard, through its interactive touch screen. Mobi View helps teachers run smooth and efficient lessons from anywhere in the classroom.
- Student collaboration with the Mobi Student-Centered Learning Pack™. Mobi’s multi-user capabilities allow up to nine groups to contribute content to the lesson display simultaneously.
- Seamless integration of content, instruction and formative assessment with the simple touch of a screen. A variety of actionable feedback reports, generated with eInstruction’s CPS™ student response systems, can be viewed privately on Mobi View’s touch screen, enabling teachers to easily conduct frequent formative assessments.
