PLAYA VISTA, CA – February 14, 2013 – Belkin 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.
Teachers 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/.
