EdTech Products

ClassHub is a device management and monitoring solution that opens amazing new possibilities for teachers and students in the classroom. This software gives teachers the tools they need to manage classroom devices and keep class on track, engaged and collaborative.

The all new Reflector Teacher is a leap forward from our classic Reflector technology. It's specially optimized for teachers and students for fast and reliable screen-mirroring in the classroom. Display devices on the big screen for everyone to see.

Thank you MACUL!

Last week, the Squirrels girls headed to Detroit to exhibit at the 2015 MACUL conference. Enthusiastic attendees were eager to learn about an upcoming Reflector 2 release and everything Squirrels has to offer.

Full of deep conversations and sessions, the annual MACUL conference is the event of the year for Michigan educators. Check out the MACUL15 hashtag on Twitter for a great recap of the event.
