PolyVision, a leader in the development of interactive teaching and learning technology, announced today that its newest interactive classroom solution, eno one, is now available to schools nationwide. Unveiled last June at the International Society for Technology in Education 2010 conference, eno one is a comprehensive classroom solution that combines the eno classic interactive whiteboard, stand or mount, PolyVision’s multi-media short-throw projector, and lesson development software in one package that can be configured in multiple ways.
Designed in collaboration with and specifically for K-12 schools, eno one helps bridge traditional teaching methods with innovative instructional tools to inspire creativity, collaboration and engagement in the classroom, while offering unprecedented flexibility. Three configuration options allow educators to adapt to classroom needs with the ability to move eno one within classrooms on a mobile stand, or affix to a wall on a fixed or a height-adjustable wall mount. Using eno one’s height-adjustable wall mount or mobile stand configuration, teachers can position the interactive whiteboard at any height to comfortably interact with lesson content and allow special needs students to participate at the board with confidence. In addition to its extraordinary flexibility, eno one meets the emerging needs of educators by:
1. Helping Teachers Grow. eno one introduces unparalleled interactivity to teachers’ existing lesson plans and the open software platform integrates easily with existing instructional curriculum programs. Turning the projector on/off, browsing the web or accessing lesson content is controlled at a central, easy-access control area on the board, saving teachers time.
2. Helping Students Grow. eno one immerses students in engaging content with digital multi-media and multi-user lessons, thereby increasing student interaction and collaboration. Accommodating up to three simultaneous users at the interactive whiteboard, lessons are delivered in a collaborative learning environment that has proven to enhance engagement and information retention, boosting student comprehension of key concepts and lessons.
3. 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. To estimate the total cost of ownership, visit the eno TCO calculator at http://www.polyvision.com/portals/0/custompages/tco-eno.htm.
4. 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 interactive whiteboards are made from recycled materials.
eno one is now available to schools through our network of approved partners.
