Promethean Wins Two Tech & Learning Best of Show Awards at ISTE 2016

Company honored for leading the way in both software and hardware for K-12 learning

(HONG KONG – July 14, 2016) – NetDragon Websoft Holdings Limited (“NetDragon”; Hong Kong Stock Code: 777), a global leader in building Internet communities, is pleased to announce that Promethean has been awarded with Best of Show awards for its two products by Tech & Learning at ISTE 2016. The two winners were ClassFlowTM, Promethean’s free software for interactive learning and collaboration; and the ActivPanelTM, which was recently named the most preferred model of interactive flat panel display for K-12 classrooms in the United States, according to data from Futuresource Consulting Ltd.

An anonymous panel of educator judges selected the Best of Show products by scouring the exhibit hall floor during the conference in Denver, which featured 500 companies sharing their solutions with more than 16,000 educators.

The judges rated their impressions on a sliding scale, evaluating areas such as quality and effectiveness, ease of use, and creative use of technology. They then met in person to discuss their ratings and decide which technologies would have the most impact in the classroom and therefore deserve to be named Best of Show.

“We’re thrilled that both ClassFlowTM and the ActivPanelTM received Best of Show awards, and especially excited that ClassFlowTM won for the third year in a row,” said Promethean’s Chief Marketing Officer Vincent Young. “We’re truly honored that the judges recognized Promethean as a leader in both software and hardware. Creating immersive learning environments requires solutions that bring the digital and physical worlds together, wherever students connect to learning. We’ve significantly expanded the capabilities of ClassFlowTM and the ActivPanelTM in the past year, and this accolade reaffirms our strength in both categories.”

ClassFlowTM features interactive lessons, polls, assignments, and more that engage students with learning content. The newest iteration of ClassFlowTM added thousands of free, teacher-approved interactive lessons, free teacher and student accounts, access to ClassFlowTM Desktop, rewards  for exemplary student behavior, and collaborative lesson-building.

The new ActivPanelTM, which launched at ISTE 2016, features an externally accessible, upgradeable AndroidTM central processing unit, wireless and BlueTooth® connectivity, more than 500,000 pre-loaded applications, mobile device mirroring, digital whiteboarding, and free access to ClassFlow TM.

An overview of all Best of Show winners will be included in the August 2016 issue of Tech & Learning.
