SMART Technologies has announced that it has been awarded two Legacy Awards in the prestigious Technology & Learning Awards of Excellence program for SMART Board™ software 9.5 and SynchronEyes™ classroom management software 7.0. The category recognizes previous award-winning products that have stood the test of time and continually offer the highest quality experiences for educators and students.
The Technology & Learning Awards of Excellence program is now in its 25th year and is recognized as one of North America’s premier education technology judging programs. This year’s winners were chosen by more than 30 educator judges who test-drove over 120 entries. Ease of use, quality, effectiveness, creative use of technology and suitability for the school environment were some of the judging criteria.
“This year’s winning products reflect an impressive effort to respond to the real needs of schools,” says Susan McLester, editor in chief of Technology & Learning magazine. “The offerings being honored are practical, innovative and central to a variety of district and site operations.”
“SMART works directly with educators to develop products that meet their needs and make a difference in the classroom,” says Nancy Knowlton, SMART’s CEO. “The Legacy Awards recognize SMART’s long-standing commitment to education and reaffirms its position as a leader in quality technology products for educators and students.”
