Educational technology manufacturer Mimio unveiled a new touch projector for classrooms at this week's International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) conference.

The MimioProjector 280T transforms traditional white boards into interactive touch pads, allowing up to ten students to work together using their fingers or styli.

With an interactive touch area of 100 inches, the HDMI projector offers exceptional image quality, while ultra-short throw design reduces shadows on the whiteboard.

Mimio's new offering promises to be the perfect solution for schools keen to encourage interactive learning, but without the budget to buy expensive tablets.

The award-winning projector manufacturer also launched an update to its MimioMobile app at the conference - the only application that provides complete collaboration models for students working with each other.

Designed to improve group work, the MimioMobile app allows students to participate through their device from anywhere in the classroom.

"At Mimio, our objective is to anticipate what technology-driven resources educators need to actively engage their students and increase learning," said Christopher Leonardo, director of research and development at Mimio. "Our goal is to help educators create the type of learning environments that meet their needs, today and into the future."
