At ISTE 2019, we unveiled our new ScreenBeam 1000, a robust Miracast wireless display receiver that untethers teachers from the front of the classroom. ScreenBeam brings a new level of mobility that increases student interactions and collaboration. To experience the full impact of ScreenBeam, teachers are pairing ScreenBeam with various edtech tools.
