Feb 2018 - Busting Myths, Teamwork & Sharing

FEBRUARY 2018

Hi Friends, 

Between sickness and snow days, January came in like a lion, leaving many of you playing catch up in the month of February. However, when you do get back on your feet, February is a great time to begin scheduling trial and pilot programs for technologies you are considering for next school year.

Don't forget about our loaner program that give you the opportunity to try out our technologies for 30 days to see if they are the right solution for your classroom! In addition to the many technologies we loan out for free trials, GradeCam offers a free 60-day pilot program for schools to try out sharing assessments and data between schools and within the district. James Bowie High School recently detailed how they became a national model PLC school using GradeCam, and their case study - complete with data, of course - really is AMAZING!

In addition, we're offering a free Try-and-Buy for Boxlight ProColor flat panels - first come, first served. Take advantage of this no-obligation free trial and awesome pricing if you do decide to purchase!

We are always ready to investigate new products that make classroom life more efficient and more effective, and Dustin will be heading to TCEA next week to see what interesting things he can find! Let us know if we can be of any assistance as you are planning technology purchases for next year, whether it be designing new buildings or simply brainstorming different solutions to solve a current classroom problem.
