Belkin Earns Double Honors from K-12 TechDecisions for Optimizing Use of Mobile Technology in the Classroom

Store and Charge, and Air Protect Case for iPad Are Recognized by TechDecisions at ISTE 2013 for Helping Educators Manage BYOD/1:1 Devices    

Belkin today announced that two of its recently announced products for education – the Belkin Store and Charge and the Belkin Air Protect Case for iPad – were named by K-12 TechDecisions as two of the Best Edtech Tools for Your BYOD or 1-1 Classroom at ISTE 2013, which took place in San Antonio last week. K-12 TechDecisions included both products in its round-up of 13 tools from the ISTE show floor that can help students manage their devices to stay focused and on track. The Store and Charge helps students optimize digital learning by keeping tablets, laptops, and e-readers organized, available, fully charged, and ready for classroom use. The Air Protect Case offers an ultra-protective, dropped tested, closed-cell foam enclosure for transporting iPads safely in school settings.

The 13 products awarded honors for BYOD or 1-1 learning initiatives were selected for their effectiveness at helping manage devices in the classroom, monitor how students use the devices, or aid in charging and updating the devices simultaneously. More than 18,000 educators and industry reps worldwide participated in ISTE 2013, which featured products that included tablets, mobile device management tools, tablet accessories, and other tools for K-12 education. Many of the products were designed to leverage the use of mobile learning initiatives in the classroom.

The Belkin Store and Charge was recognized for offering a functional and affordable mobile device management solution that provides K-12 customers the ability to store and charge up to 10 devices simultaneously. The station can also store and charge different types of devices at the same time – each with its own charging cable or adapter – without interfering with wireless syncing. The Store and Charge accommodates BYOD environments by using the mobile devices’ own charging cable or adapter to power the device.

The Belkin Air Protect Case for iPad was selected as a best edtech tool for using the same high-grade material that is found in shock-absorbing running shoe insoles and protective athletic shin-guards. The Air Protect Case has been military tested with validated performance to MIL-STD-810G Shock/Drop specifications by a third-party test laboratory. The thin profile fits in most charging carts and is designed for quick, hassle-free assembly, allowing for easy classroom deployments.

“We are extremely pleased to have received this recognition at ISTE 2013 from K-12 TechDecisions,” said Jon Roepke, senior product manager, Business Division, Belkin International. “K-12 environments can be unpredictable, with students frequently subjecting their devices to less than ideal conditions. So it’s important to have a reliable device management solution, and protect their investment with a case that can withstand the daily wear and tear of an education environment. We designed the Store and Charge and the Air Protect Case for iPad so that students’ learning experience can be easier and more fulfilling. Being honored as one of the 13 Best Edtech Tools for BYOD or 1-1 Classroom at ISTE 2013 is a testament to the care and dedication we put into understanding classroom technology challenges.”

The Store and Charge and Air Protect Case for iPad are among Belkin’s latest solutions designed to serve the growing needs of school districts and educators, both in and beyond the classroom. For more information, please visit: http://belkinbusiness.com/education.
