Our exclusive Engage-2 is a multi-touch table PC that engages children as they learn new skills and explore technology together. Whether it's used as an interactive display board or as an activity center for small groups, the Engage-2's durable design can withstand regular classroom use and young children's active play. Its lightweight, compact design makes the Engage-2 easy to move around the classroom, and the table can easily be moved from its horizontal position into a vertical one for teachers to better engage the whole class. The Engage-2's adjustable stand also makes it the perfect table PC for students in wheelchairs or with special needs because teachers can tilt the table forward to give children better screen access.
The 27" touch screen can engage up to four children at a time in small groups, which allows children to interact with technology in a new, improved way. The Engage-2 features the Windows 8.1 operating system, can run Windows applications, and has a 4 hour battery life to give it even greater versatility in the classroom. Each table PC comes with our Kaplan-exclusive Shine-2® Software which includes 7 circle-time activities and 10 cooperative learning explorations that encourage children to explore and discover cooperative play while also completing clear learning objectives. Be sure to click on "The Explorations" tab for more information about the 10 learning explorations featured on the Engage-2.
The Engage-2 adheres to the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) recommendations for the use of technology by young children by giving students intentional and effective tools that support their learning and development.
The Engage-2 brings technology into the Early Childhood classroom with portability not found in other interactive tables. Here's what you'll find when you receive your Engage-2:
Your new interactive table includes FREE shipping. The Engage-2 can be setup with just a few easy steps. We provide video walk-throughs to show you how to set it up and begin using your new interactive table PC.
What makes the Engage-2 a must-have asset in the classroom is our exclusive "Shine-2 Explorations" software. The 10 Explorations available on the Engage-2 give children the opportunity to explore their natural curiosity and creativity instead of the typical linear play featured on most early childhood software. Each activity was designed with Head Start Objectives and Kindergarten Common Core standards in mind to ensure that children are appropriately engaged and learning in the classroom.*
