AMHERST, NEW YORK, June 26, 2018 – State of the art solutions for education take center stage this week in Chicago as, Stampede, the global leader in value added ProAV distribution, showcases the award-winning TAPit® assisted learning platform and JOAN® Classroom scheduler at ISTE 2018, produced by the International Society for Technology in Education. The show runs through June 27, 2018 at McCormick Place West and Stampede will be demonstrating the two educational solutions at Booth #1195.
“Educators need all the help they can get in meeting the needs of today’s learners,” Stampede President & COO Kevin Kelly said today. “The TAPit touch accessible platform for interactive assisted learning and the JOAN Classroom scheduler are two stand-out solutions that meet the needs of the modern classroom.

TAPit is the first ADA compliant interactive learning station designed to recognize the difference between an arm resting upon the screen and a finger or assistive device intentionally tapping an image. The TAPit platform is within reach for people using wheelchairs, walkers or other mobility devices, providing full access to the screen with easy adjustments that adapt to individualized needs. With the touch of a button, the TAPit platform can move up or down and the 42″ interactive LCD panel can be tilted from 0 to 90 degrees.
