SMART Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: SMT) (TSX: SMA), a leading provider of collaboration solutions announces today that they have updated their most advanced member of the award-winning SMART kapp® product family, SMART kapp iQ®. The new and improved SMART kapp iQ interactive flat panel is specifically designed to deliver a complete, all-in-one classroom solution that provides educators with the flexibility to deliver lessons across a range of learning and instructional styles, including whole-class, small group and individual instruction.

SMART kapp iQ now offers educators simple, one-touch access to a full range of classroom applications, promising a fully integrated experience with student devices. Because all software is built right into the interactive display, both educators and students have seamless access to the applications they use every day, all without the need to physically connect to an external computer. kapp iQ can be mounted on a mobile floor stand, meaning the latest advancements facilitate the creation of flexible learning environments both within and outside of classrooms – it’s ready for collaboration anywhere, without the inconvenience of managing cables and hardware.

“This improvement to SMART kapp iQ is yet another revolutionary leap for us,” said Warren Barkley, CTO of SMART Technologies. “kapp iQ was introduced into education last year and its multi-way collaboration between the display and student devices proved extremely successful in a classroom setting, fostering both whole-class and student-led learning. With the new all-in-one capability, we’ve not only simplified the user experience for better technology adoption, but have also developed an easy way for administrators to standardize installation, training, maintenance and support across multiple classrooms.” he said.

SMART kapp iQ displays found success in classrooms, garnered awards and received praise for its use in the workplace including a 2016 Edison Award, three separate Best-of-Show Awards at InfoComm 2015, the recipient of a Gold Stevie Award for the Best New Product of the Year – Business-to-Business category, raVe On Demand, and Best of ISTE 2014 award.

All SMART interactive flat panels include a 1-year subscription to the SMART Learning Suite – an integrated educational software platform designed to enable natural and collaborative learning experiences, combining the power of industry-leading SMART Notebook®, SMART lab, SMART response® 2 and access to the award-winning SMART amp™. The SMART Learning Suite is optimized to work best with SMART interactive flat panels – this hardware and software combination deliver the best solution for educators.
