Prestigious International Awards Program Recognizes Outstanding Educational Technology Products and Companies
EdTech Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies and solutions in the global educational technology market, today announced that Boxlight Corporation (Nasdaq: BOXL), a leading provider of interactive technology, digital signage, classroom audio, and services, has been selected as winner of the “Overall EdTech Company of the Year” award in the fourth annual EdTech Breakthrough Awards program.
Boxlight’s dynamic portfolio of ‘breakthrough’ classroom technology empowers teachers with innovative solutions for classroom collaboration, real-time assessments, STEM-based learning and more. For over 35 years, Boxlight’s technology, software, and professional development solutions have enabled educators to effectively enhance student outcomes and build essential skills, including critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creativity.
With brands that include Mimio Education, MimioSTEM, Boxlight-EOS Professional Development, Clevertouch Technologies, and FrontRow, the Company offers educators cutting-edge, results-driven, and comprehensive solutions.
To help more districts, schools, teachers, and students implement their best-in-class edtech, Boxlight recently launched Boxlight Financial Services. This program allows more districts and schools – whatever their size – to implement the edtech solutions they need. In addition, to help educators take advantage of federal funding such as CARES and ARPA, the company’s Grants Assistance Program (GAP) has released a Relief Funding Guide to help schools navigate the application processes.
Boxlight-EOS has also been approved as a Sponsor of Continuing Teacher and Leader Education by the New York State Education Department. Already working for large school districts like Clayton County Public Schools (GA) and Phoenix Union High School District (AZ), Boxlight-EOS continues to demonstrate its expertise and qualifications to help educators advance their ed tech skills.
“We are so excited to be recognized with this marquee award from EdTech Breakthrough. Our aim is to keep teachers and students connected and maintain learning continuity. As educators stepped into 2021 with some trepidation, we have been determined to support them in their search for, and successful implementation of, turnkey tech solutions,” said Michael Pope, Chairman and CEO of Boxlight. “While educators are offered more and more solutions in the hopes of becoming part of their ed tech ecosystem, we want them to feel confident that they have more options, and that budget will not limit their district goals and vision. In this way, we help them transform the learning experience and take it to the next level.”
The mission of the EdTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of educational technology categories, including Student Engagement, School Administration, Adaptive Learning, STEM Education, e-Learning, Career Preparation and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 2,250 nominations from over 18 different countries throughout the world.
“Over the past couple of years, educators had to navigate complex challenges created by school closures, remote teaching and learning, virtual meetings, then a return to the classroom and learning loss,” said James Johnson, managing director, EdTech Breakthrough. “As educators look for new solutions that support teaching and learning to address these challenges, we are proud to recognize the ‘breakthrough’ innovation and value that dynamic educational technology Boxlight delivers. Their portfolio of solutions has helped schools and districts become more adept at addressing educational challenges, and we are thrilled to congratulate them on being 'Overall EdTech Company of the Year' for 2022.”
