A Magical Classroom Combination – SMART Unveils SMART kapp iQ for Education
  • New advanced addition to SMART kapp product line is the interactive display reimagined
  • Unique plug-and-play solution enables walk-up-and-use, real-time multi-way collaboration through simple whiteboarding on an Ultra HD display
  • Includes market-leading SMART Notebook® software

Imagine the combination of an award-winning interactive flat panel display, a revolutionary replacement for the traditional dry-erase board and the world’s most popular collaborative learning software. This magical mix has arrived, as SMART Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: SMT) (TSX: SMA) announces SMART kapp iQ.

Available in either a 55” or 65” diagonal, SMART kapp iQ is an Ultra HD display that enables students to learn naturally – working in groups as they pose questions, share ideas and solve problems in real-time – either on the display itself or on any web-enabled device.

SMART kapp iQ requires nothing more than a power supply to work in whiteboarding mode. Educators and students simply walk up to the display and immediately share notes and drawings from the display onto connected devices, whether they are in the same room or remote, in an incredible real-time, multi-way, multi-device collaborative experience. Students can contribute to on-screen content directly from their Android, iOS or web-based devices and have those notes appear on other students’ connected devices and on the large display as well. Throughout the collaborative learning process users can capture, save and share content for later review and re-use within SMART Notebook, SMART amp or other learning management systems.

“Walk into any classroom today and you’ll see teachers and students naturally gathering in groups to learn by sharing ideas and problem solving,” says Neil Gaydon, president and CEO, SMART Technologies. “SMART kapp iQ enhances that collaborative learning process by providing an incredibly simple walk-up-and-use experience while seamlessly connecting with smartphones, tablets and laptops. We’re confident that no other interactive flat panel for education offers so much magic, power and flexibility.”

At the heart of this game-changing classroom technology is an interactive flat panel designed specifically for education to promote skill development and active learning in ways that are natural to how students interact with the world. Featuring SMART’s proprietary Silktouch, unique Pen ID, Object awareness and exclusive SMART ink, SMART kapp iQ provides a premium touch experience, superior collaborative features and Ultra HD resolution – all enabling higher levels of student interaction without the technology getting in the way. Like all SMART interactive displays for education, SMART Notebook software is included and allows educators to easily create engaging interactive learning experiences. Educators can add SMART amp software, SMART's innovative co-creation software that brings together students, teachers, interactive displays and mobile devices to unlock the full potential of collaboration in the classroom.

More Key Features of SMART kapp iQ 

  • Students with special needs, those contributing asynchronously or remote, have more ways to participate, using their own mobile devices
  • Seamlessly switch the interactive flat panel to PC input to use SMART Notebook software, or other applications and content
  • Integrates with SMART amp software
