Commercial Tablets in K-12    E118 

K-12 educators and technology personnel face challenges supporting consumer focused tablets.  The EltePad 900 is the first tablet designed specifically for commercial use.  K-12 technology professionals now have a true alternative to consider in the tablet category.  With the EitePad 900, you have a machine that runs X86 architecture and Windows 8 Professional, which will allow for legacy, K-12 applications to be loaded.  The touch screen, with optional pen, makes it the perfect device for test taking.  In addition, with HP's well thought out ecosystem for the ElitePad, you can get a full scale notebook computer which could be nice for teachers and administrators.

Classroom Technology that Improves Learning and Ensures Student Safety        E121 

Audio Enhancement was founded on the simple idea that learning begins with hearing.  Audio Enhancement pioneered wireless microphone technology for classrooms. These systems improve student achievement, positive behavior, and decrease teacher vocal fatigue.  Every day, the teacher wears the lightweight microphone that has a function button and when activated sends an alert to first responders. With the optional security camera, the first responders can see and hear what’s happening in the classroom and determine the level of threat and the response necessary to deal with the emergency. Audio Enhancement continues to lead with innovative solutions.
