Significant Upgrades to MimioStudio Software and MimioMobile App Advance Collaborative Teaching and Learning
New enhancements include functionality to enable mobile participation and collaboration for the entire classroom across multiple Apple and Android devices.
CAMBRIDGE, MA — Jan. 12, 2015 — Mimio introduced two updates to MimioStudio™ and MimioMobile™ teaching technologies this week to provide even more effective solutions to interactive teaching aligned to the Common Core State Standards. The new offerings, the MimioStudio™ 11.3 classroom software and the MimioMobile™ 3 mobile application, are available immediately. With this new release, MimioStudio offers full compatibility and seamless integration with the MimioMobile™ 3 mobile application – the only app that enables educators to deliver collaborative lessons across any Apple or Android mobile device for up to 50 students at a time. All current customers have the opportunity to upgrade to these versions for free from app stores and Mimio’s website.
“At Mimio, we work every day to advance our interactive teaching tools for one reason alone: to help teachers better engage students in the process of learning,” said Mimio Chief Technology Officer Dan Winkler. “We are proud to offer new functionality that further supports teachers through more effective collaboration.”
Updates of MimioStudio and MimioMobile MimioStudio now integrates all MimioClassroom™ products, supports Common Core State Standards guidelines through ongoing assessment and collaborative learning and powers any type of interactive displays. The latest version of the software augments the Collaborate feature. Each student now can use the new MimioPad™ wireless pen tablets and mobile devices equipped with the MimioMobile™ application to control his or her own MimioStudio™ Notebook page, building on the interactive activities and lessons already created by the teacher.
With the expanded Collaborate feature within the MimioStudio 11.3 software, teachers now have the option of having a single student, group or the entire class work on the same activity. They can also pause student sessions, or hide a session from view instantly, all on the front-of-the-class display. Teachers now have a far greater ability to highlight, discuss, and share student work with the entire class.
With a single MimioStudio classroom license and the MimioMobile 3 app, any student with an Android or Apple mobile device can participate in collaborative learning and ongoing, real-time formative assessment, including open response questions. Schools and students benefit from more collaborative group instruction, which encourages participation and idea sharing, and supports the requirement of the Common Core State Standards for a more student-centric learning environment.
“These new Mimio offerings improve the classroom experience by extending technology from teachers to their students to foster interaction and collaboration,” said Mimio President Manny Perez. “Mimio takes great pride in the fact that our ongoing commitment to advance interactive learning has created some of the most innovative products on the market, bar none.”
