Tuggerah, Australia - February 26, 2013: Belkin today announced the Australian availability of a range of products developed specifically for the modern classroom and designed by a dedicated team focused on the education sector globally. This includes the Belkin Tablet Stage, a stand that turns any Tablet into an interactive presentation tool, as well as a range of accessories designed to connect, protect and enhance the use of tablets in the learning environment.

As technology and most especially Tablets permeate the learning environment, Belkin has invested significant research and development to ensure these technologies are enhanced and tailored to the unique needs of educators and students alike.

“As today’s schools embrace the interactive power of Tablets, they seek to make it less of an individual device and more of a collaborative tool. As such, the use of tablets in the classroom is growing at an amazing rate as educators integrate these amazing innovations into their curriculum” explains Daniel Hall, Product Marketing Manager, Belkin ANZ.

“As tablet accessory industry leaders globally, Belkin’s dedicated Education team have taken all this knowledge into the classroom and are developing products based off the results of this in-classroom research. These products are designed specifically for educators and students to enhance the learning environment.”

The Tablet Stage and accompanying app is one such exciting new development, enabling teachers and students to share documents by turning a tablet into an interactive presentation tool. The document camera mode makes it easy to capture images and live video for display or projection, and the accompanying app enables educators to sketch, annotate and capture live video for the recording of engaging tutorials for future use or sharing. The Belkin Tablet Stage will be available in Australia in July for $199.

In addition to this, Tablet accessories including the Quadprotect iPad Hardcase, Stackable Tablet Stands and Tablet Stand with Storage products are designed to protect and enhance the learning environment -
