KB4Pack Finalist in 2016 Cool Tool Awards

Named a finalist in EdTech Digest’s 2016 Cool Tool Awards, the package enables wider use of mobile devices with audio support for differentiated listening, learning, and for use in assessments.

“Technology is opening the door to a renaissance in education”

Introduced in late 2015, the KB4Pack includes computer peripheral accessories to support mobile devices – specifically smartphones and tablets. It includes the KB4 Bluetooth Keyboard, the TPT stand, and an audio choice between the award-winning 3068AV headphone or an E3T earbud (KB4E3TPack) with inline microphone. “By dismantling the onscreen keyboard so students can view the entire screen, the KB4 meets a key accessibility requirement by all of the major assessments, including PARCC & Smarter Balanced, EPPA21, NCSC, WIDA and DLM standards,” shared the company’s Tim Ridgway. He added “We’re honored the KB4Pack was recognized by EdTech Digest for its innovation and how it can help students with accessibility for digital learning, listening, and for use in assessments.

“Technology is opening the door to a renaissance in education,” says Victor Rivero, who oversees the program as Editor-in-Chief of EdTech Digest. “The edtech sector has experienced tremendous growth in the past several years, and there is also tremendous quality of products and very talented people out there. These honorees are among edtech’s best and brightest.” He continues, “This year’s program had some very stiff competition, hard decisions were made in selecting winners. The honorees here are among the best and brightest in the edtech space. Finalists and winners both represent an achievement. We’re proud to honor these cool tools, leaders and trendsetters in education technology”.

The audio options of the KB4Pack mobile peripheral package support school officials who have opted into a BYOD environment or wanted to supplement their device choices with audio support for differentiated listening and learning. The E3T earbud meets budget-conscious needs with the benefit of an inline microphone while the 3068AV headphone provides the longevity and peace of mind from the just announced 3-year warranty.
