School safety continues to be a key priority for many districts, especially considering the changing dynamic of our teaching and learning environments. As students develop emotionally and mentally, their sense of well-being, confidence, and safety can be a factor to their overall academic success. The Boxlight suite of instructional technology help power a school’s communication and safety systems.
The Boxlight family has 10 reasons to celebrate early in the year – we won 10 Tech & Learning Awards of Excellence. Five of our solutions earned Best of 2022 in both Primary and Secondary categories – Attention! campus communication solution, MimioPro 4 interactive display, CleverLive cloud content management platform, Robo 3D printer, and EOS Education Professional Development services.
When districts and schools search out education technology, their checklist of requirements generally includes budget considerations, ease of use, software and apps available, warranty and maintenance, and user training. To successfully implement education technology, quality professional development is essential to support administrators, support staff, educators, and students on how to use technology most effectively and efficiently at the school and district levels.
Incorporating advanced technology to improve campus communication is critical to boosting safety in a school. As district and school leaders continue to look for ways to help those in the school community feel safe, interactive display technology has become a key tool. For instance, administrators can broadcast alerts and updates to the interactive displays in a school quickly so that teachers and students receive important information when it’s needed. With a solid and detailed communication plan, schools can implement innovative technology for more than just teaching and learning.
Hello, I am a Lyrik that lives in the Physical Education Department. Mr. Peters was up super early to take me to the school pool for swim practice. He wants to make sure that every member of the swim team can hear the guidance and feedback needed to improve their skills. One of the better parts of my job is to help the person who has me to communicate clearly so that any important information and direction is heard.
It’s going to be a full day for a Lyrik like me. Ms. Rogers already had her morning cup of coffee and greeted everyone in the school office. The main office sure is a busy place! Soon Ms. Rogers and I will be heading out to help direct cars while students and parents cross the street. We want to make sure everyone gets to school safely, and Ms. Rogers always takes me along so that instructions can be heard loudly and clearly. Morning arrival can get really hectic!
We’re living in a time in which posting updates and sharing news on social media instantly is the norm. The immediate gratification of seeing simple messages that convey information that may impact views and actions can be applied to the needs of a school. Campus communication that can clearly, quickly, and reliably share alerts and information is essential for the overall safety and sense of well-being that staff and students need. With nearly all schools implementing technology – whether on a large or small scale – all need to know what can affect them.
We are excited to announce that Boxlight solutions have won multiple Best for Back to School 2022 Awards! As schools head into the new year, we are honored that six of our solutions were recognized as those that will support educators in their work. As a company, we understand the value of offering educators comprehensive solutions that are user-friendly, robust, and turnkey.
