The CTL team recently returned from our yearly trip to ISTE, the International Society for Technology in Education conference and tradeshow. This year was exceptionally special as a record number of over 20,000 attendees and exhibitors from all 50 states and 72 different countries flocked to see the latest in ed-tech solutions. CTL brought our fleet of ruggedized Chromebooks for education. Though we’re proud to say that the CTL J5 Rugged Convertible Touch Chromebook stole the show and was voted “ISTE 2017 Best of Show” by Tech & Learning Magazine.
Each year after the ISTE conference, Tech & Learning releases its list of winners of the “ISTE Best of Show” Awards. Tech & Learning’s team of advisors dedicate their time at the conference to explore all 572 exhibiting companies. These anonymous judges review each product based on a sliding scale, evaluating areas of ease of use, quality, innovative application of technology, and effectiveness. They then meet to discuss and name “Best of Show” products which will have the most impact in classrooms. Last year, T&L took note of the CTL NL61X Chromebook for Education and awarded the device “Best of Show.”
J5 Remains a Best Selling Chromebook for Educaiton
This year, CTL’s J5 Chromebook for education caught their eye. One of our best-selling products, the J5 Chromebook stands up to daily use from students, converts to display and tablet mode, and features a drop resistant design, spill-proof keyboard, and a battery that lasts up to 10 hours. The J5’s ten point capacitive touch screen allows the user to scroll, navigate, and interact with the Chromebook with ease.
We, at CTL, always value the time we get to spend with new and old friends attending ISTE and many other tradeshows. This year was no exception. From our Educator Appreciation Reception at the Hard Rock Cafe to our talks with our attendees about digital equity, 1:1 solutions, and ed-tech innovation, we remain excited to celebrate technology in education each year at ISTE.
