DYMO/Mimio ITT Launches "Trade Up" Program

Limited Time Program Offers Schools $200 Off MimioTeach Interactive Whiteboard System with Proof of Every Recycled Interactive Whiteboard*

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., May 3, 2011/via PRNewswire/ -- As the school year comes to a close, DYMO/Mimio® Interactive Teaching Technologies (ITT) announces its new "Trade Up" program to offer schools even more savings on their newest technology offerings.  From now through June 30, 2011, for every conventional interactive whiteboard that schools recycle, DYMO/Mimio will offer $200 off the standard educator price of the MimioTeach™ system in the U.S. and Canada.  For each recycled conventional interactive whiteboard, a signed Principal's Agreement will be required, indicating that the school has recycled or removed the old product.

"We wanted to give schools both an environmentally and budget-friendly incentive to clear out their old and unused technology that just clutter precious classroom space," says Laurence Huntley, general manager, DYMO/Mimio. "We created the DYMO/Mimio Trade Up program to help schools stretch their end-of-year budgets even further, and make our products even more accessible to teachers."

The MimioTeach system is among the newest and most advanced products in the MimioClassroom™ product suite, with patented technology that instantly transforms any dry-erase whiteboard into a full-interactive whiteboard. With no costly installation or expensive equipment required, the MimioTeach system can be quickly set up right out of the box.  The award-winning MimioTeach system is rechargeable, wireless and not much bigger than a ruler. The system can easily be moved from one classroom to another, so teachers can reach even more students through engaging interactive lessons.

"The MimioClassroom product suite is refreshingly intuitive, so teachers can be up and running within minutes, with features that make them more successful – and students more engaged," says Huntley. "It really is that simple. Teachers can just attach the MimioTeach system onto a regular dry erase whiteboard, turn it on, and simply teach."  

*Schools are asked to use a local recycling facility. If this is not an option, it is asked that the schools permanently remove the conventional interactive whiteboard from the building.
