ScreenBeam® Wireless Display and Classroom Orchestration Platform Adds Support for Google Classroom and Chromebook Student Devices

At BETT 2020 London in booth #NJ40, ScreenBeam will demo Classroom Commander – the only platform to combine both teacher and student wireless display capability with student Windows 10 or Chromebook device orchestration.

 

LONDON, January 22, 2020 — ScreenBeam Inc. – a global leader in wireless display and collaboration solutions – will preview its latest version of ScreenBeam Classroom Commander (SBCC) with new support for Chromebook student devices at BETT 2020 in London. The platform combines the award-winning ScreenBeam 1000 EDU wireless display receiver – an essential tool for mobilizing teachers from the front of the classroom and into the classroom – with Classroom Commander student device orchestration software – an elegant, easy-to-use app for monitoring and controlling student devices.

“Chromebooks are impacting classrooms because they offer a low-cost, easy to use option for delivering online learning tools,” said David Lopez, ScreenBeam senior manager, strategic alliances for EDU. But as a former teacher, it’s easy to recognize the challenges when you have an entire classroom of 5th graders with web access. Technology has been a great enabler for student personalized learning, but educators need to be able to control the experience. ScreenBeam Classroom Commander gives teachers an intuitive yet powerful solution to harness student use of mobile devices and enable in-room student led learning, presentation and collaboration.”
