“I am a former teacher and come from a family of educators, and it’s not lost of me that the idea of balancing technology with education is a trend that’s here to stay. So, I guess the real question is, “Why not?”. EdTech solutions are the conduits through which any lesson can become tangible for students in ways that just weren’t possible when I was in school. Furthermore, myViewBoard addresses the teacher and student real-life challenges in software and provides an innovative, user-friendly experience. Everything you could possibly need is all in one place – that makes my teacher heart so happy!”
