In creating our line of InFocus interactive products we have heard from lots of educators. We took much of their feedback to heart as we refined our products. We treasure educators who spend their days changing lives, and we are ready to take that relationship to the next level.
InFocus is proud to announce the InFocus Interactive Educator program! This innovative program is designed to create a lasting relationship between InFocus and a select group of exemplary educators interested in alternative forms of interactive technology in the classroom.
We are very proud of the flexibility, durability, and quality of our interactive products. Our interactive projector, for example, is ranked among the best in the world. The included wand allows teachers and students to interact from virtually anywhere in the room, freeing you from being tethered to a board. If you are selected for the program, we will give you an InFocus Interactive Projector (valued at up to $1,500) to keep. It’s our way of saying thanks for being innovative with us.
Here is how it will work. First, you will apply to the program. Each Interactive Educator class will go through an intense initial training program. These “Interactive Institutes” will happen roughly twice per calendar year, typically in conjunction with a regional educational technology conference. The Institute lasts for about a half of a day and we will train you on the in’s and out’s of your new InFocus Interactive Projector. Then we will interact with you for the next few months as you develop curriculum and content using the device. You will tell us stories about how you are using it, how you are loving it, and you will make us a video showing us a creative use. We will be there to answer any questions you may have and encourage interaction among the members of the program to generate new and creative ideas.
We’d love it if you would consider applying for our brand new program. Find out more and read the full program requirements at the InFocus Interactive Educator page.
