INDIANAPOLIS, July 1 – uWriteTouch introduced KUNO at ISTE 2011 this week. Unlike other mobile internet devices available, KUNO has been developed with students in mind and allows schools the ability to manage and control the individual student devices from a teacher, school, and even district level.
Through partnership with sister company CurriculumLoft; KUNO answers concerns that implementing a one-to-one device initiative will only give students access to play games and text during class. CurriculumLoft’s management software allows only course materials and other teacher-approved resources to be accessed from the devices, so as to enhance – not distract from – the learning environment.
“With KUNO and its partnership with CurriculumLoft, students will be able to access class resources from the CurriculumLoft Cloud, even when Internet access is not available,” says president JR Gayman.
Schools in Indiana who have seen the pilot version of KUNO are enthusiastic about implementing the devices, with several districts already placing pre-orders. At a starting price point under $335 for the device and its accessories, schools see KUNO as a viable solution for their one-to-one plans. “The decision maker in going with an android based platform like KUNO was the management tool. [Other popular tablets] and notebook computers are hard if not impossible to manage,” says Assistant Principal Drew Markel of Crothersville Community Schools, an early adopter.
