eGlass, the new clear whiteboard, coming to ISTE 2021

June 25, 2021 GMT

SAN DIEGO, June 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- (ISTE EdTech Live) - Pathway Innovations Inc, an education technology company best known for the HoverCam document camera (in 400,000 classrooms across North America), is showcasing eGlass, its latest tool for raising in-class student engagement, at the ISTE Live 21 Ed Tech conference taking place online June 26-30. Educators interested in learning more about eGlass can sign up for 30-minute presentations at: https://conference.iste.org/2021/live/expo/activities/

eGlass is a transparent glass writing board, built-in camera and software package that enables teachers to have their face appear embedded with their writing. “This is a tool that engages students on multiple levels,” said Pathway CEO Ji Shen. “Teachers can use their gaze, gestures and body language to emphasize written points. Students, meanwhile, feel they have a 1-to-1 connection with their teacher.”


Using eGlass, teachers never need to turn their back to write on a traditional board, or look down to work on a computer or tablet. Their eyes are on their students the entire time.

The effectiveness of lightboard pedagogy will be discussed daily at ISTE with presentations by blended learning specialist Marcia Kish and eGlass’ Craig Justice. Kish uses eGlass to coach teachers on how to incorporate technology and other blended learning practices into their in-classroom, hybrid and distance learning instruction. Register for any of the following sessions at https://conference.iste.org/2021/live/expo/booth/index.php?id=659736.

About eGlass

eGlass is an all-in-one, transparent writing surface with built-in camera and adjustable lighting that engages students while the teacher writes. As the instructor writes on the glass, eGlass’s built-in camera automatically flips the image so the text appears left to right. The surface’s embedded LEDs intensify the pen ink with an eye-catching glow that is highly visible.

Available in 35 and 50 inch models, eGlass is easy to set up and use. Instructors simply plug it into a PC, Mac or Chromebook via USB cable. Bundled intuitive software is fully compatible with Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Skype, Google Meet and more.
