Smart to showcase new products at expo
Dubai, February 18, 2010
Canada-based Smart Technologies, which introduced the world’s first interactive whiteboard, will showcase new education products at a major upcoming education supplies exhibition in Dubai.
Gulf Education Supplies Show (GESS) 2010 will be held at the Airport Expo in Dubai from February 23 to 25.
New products which will be shown for the first time include the Smart Board 685ix interactive whiteboard system, Smart Notebook Math Tools software, Smart Notebook Express, Smart Response LE interactive response system, and the Smart Classroom Suite interactive learning software.
The Smart Board 685ix interactive whiteboard system is a fully integrated system that combines a Smart Board 685 interactive whiteboard and the new wall-mounted, ultra-short-throw UX60 widescreen projector.
With a 16:10 aspect ratio, the new system delivers unparalleled image quality and virtually eliminates shadows, glare and projector light in the eyes, a statement said.
Smart Notebook Math Tools, which integrates seamlessly with Smart Notebook software, provides maths-focused content and tools for middle, secondary and post-secondary school educators that enable them to demonstrate math concepts visually by creating, editing or graphing mathematical equations.
Smart Notebook Express is a free, lightweight web-based application that lets anyone, anywhere download, edit and share files created in Smart Notebook software.
Smart Response LE helps teachers gauge comprehension among students in early education who may or may not be able to read and learners with special needs.
Smart Classroom Suite interactive learning software, which includes Smart Notebook collaborative learning software, Smart Notebook SE collaborative learning software, Smart Sync classroom management software and Smart Response CE collaborative learning software, makes it easy for teachers to create, organise, manage and assess students.
“The Middle East continues to be a key growth market for innovative classroom solutions with academic institutions in the region increasingly adopting the latest teaching and education technologies," said Aaron Fright, regional director – Middle East, Smart Technologies.
"Smart Technologies continues to develop hardware and software products that enhance and enrich the classroom environment. GESS 2010 will be an excellent opportunity to showcase our latest innovations,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
