What We Do

Boxlight and EOS Education provide engaging, differentiated professional development for teachers to ensure that every student benefits from the technology tools available in their classrooms and schools. EOS programs are built with customization in mind—we focus on building comfort and confidence using the specific hardware and software platforms available to the teacher, adjust content to be relevant for different grade bands and subject areas, and then scaffold application of this technology to meet instructional priorities.

Our Philosophy

EOS Education believes there are three fundamentals to improving teaching and learning quality:

Professional Development to improve Teacher Motivation

TEACHER MOTIVATION

Professional Development to improve teacher effectiveness

TEACHER EFFECTIVENESS

Professional Development to improve purposeful engagement of students

PURPOSEFUL ENGAGEMENT
OF STUDENTS

We are focused on sustainable implementation that provides:

  • SYSTEMIC CHANGE through guided processes
  • SELF-SUFFICIENCY as experts work alongside district and teacher leaders
  • DOCUMENTATION and purposeful follow-up
Maximizing resources is essential:

  • LEVERAGING existing district/school capabilities and know-how
  • SETTING CLEAR EXPECTATIONS and providing accountability
  • DRIVING EFFICIENCY through workflow optimization

What Makes Us Better

We design each program to work for your teachers, students, and schools.
We focus on learning applications first, then advise and support technology integration.
