Thank you, @ipevo, one of Edcamp MetroDC’s Spring 2018 sponsors

We’re grateful to have IPEVO as one of our returning sponsors this year! IPEVO is providing us with major giveaways for our raffle: one interactive white board and one document camera will be given out on the day.

https://www.ipevo.com/

IPEVO is a whole new approach to classroom technology. They believe that classroom technology should allow educators to do more at a lower price.

IPEVO makes versatile teaching tools instead of specialized “classroom equipment.” They go beyond the usual conventions of classroom technology — large, expensive, specialized and complex — to rethink simple and flexible solutions for interactive teaching in today’s classrooms.

IPEVO’s interactive teaching tools empower educators and teachers with radically affordable and compact technology that is simple, intuitive and flexible, so that precious time and resources can be wholly dedicated to teaching. They intend to make educational technology accessible and available to all.
