Mimio Launches MimioMobile for the Web
Offers a 30-Day Free Trial, Complete with Lesson Starter Pack
CAMBRIDGE, MA — Nov. 2, 2015 — Mimio has launched the newest version of its award-winning MimioMobile™ application, MimioMobile for the Web. Available through a (compatible) Web browser at mobile.mimio.com, the Web application enables educators to deliver collaborative lessons and assessments to an entire class. This release, coupled with the existing Apple and Android apps, allows the MimioMobile app to work on virtually any device the student may have in the classroom: tablets, smartphones, and laptops (including Chromebooks). Educators can try the software for free for 30 days. And to help teachers make the most of their trial, Mimio has created a Starter Pack of lesson samples, assessment questions, and tips.
Mimio users can learn how to start their free trial of the MimioMobile app at http://www.mimio.com/en-NA/Products/MimioMobile-Trial.aspx. The app will allow teachers to show any combination of the students’ work on the front-of-the-class display, creating greater collaborative learning and providing more in-depth understanding of the students’ comprehension. The MimioMobile app is the only application that provides complete collaboration models for students working with each other and with teachers as part of an interactive whiteboard solution.
To make it even easier for educators to get up and running, Mimio is offering a MimioMobile Starter Pack that will help new users try the app in depth. Available at http://news.mimio.com/mimiomobile-starter-pack-pr it includes collaborative student activities, assessment questions, and further learning practice. The pack is loaded with tips that will help teachers enhance each lesson through the use of conventional and technological tools. It also includes links to resource guides and information about on-demand and live training.
“Teachers need to be given the appropriate resources to get up to speed on new software and technology – otherwise, there’s a distinct possibility that the technology will go unused,” said Christopher Leonardo, head of research and development at Mimio. “With the release of the MimioMobile Starter Pack, we are solving this problem by providing busy teachers with materials that show the many benefits of the collaboration and assessment features of the MimioMobile app.”
Recently named “best upgraded product” in Tech & Learning magazine’s 2015 Awards of Excellence program, the MimioStudio™ classroom license and the MimioMobile app allow any student with an Android or Apple mobile device, or any device with compatible Web browser, to participate in collaborative learning and ongoing, real-time formative assessment, including open-response questions. The collaborative group instruction encourages participation and idea sharing, and supports the requirement of the Common Core State Standards for a more student-centric learning environment.
“Schools are increasingly adopting mobile devices, which allow teachers to teach in new and more effective ways”, said Dan Winkler, chief technology officer for Mimio. “Integrating these devices effectively in the classroom can present some challenges. That’s why we developed our MimioMobile collaboration and assessment app, which can now run on almost every popular device used in the classroom. MimioMobile allows students to work on their own or to collaborate in groups. It’s also great for student-led teaching. And with the assessment feature, teachers can better understand what their students are learning. The app enables new teaching strategies that were previously not possible with traditional tools.”
