A CTL Chromebook, Chromebox and Keyboard/Mouse Combo receive awards
CTL has won three Tech & Learning Awards of Excellence: Back to School 2023. The CTL Chromebook PX11E “Secure” Special Edition and CTL Works With Chromebook Keyboard and Mouse combo were recognized in the Secondary Education category while the CTL Chromebox CBx3-7 was recognized in the Higher Education category.
“We are always appreciative when our products win awards given out by EdTech experts,” noted Erik STromquist, CTL’s President and CEO. “But, we are more proud knowing CTL devices help students and teachers achieve better learning outcomes.”
The Tech & Learning's Awards of Excellence program, “The Best Tools for Back to School,” is designed to help readers find the products and solutions that will support their work in any learning environment.
“With ESSER funding coming to an end, and emerging tech like AI exploding into the market with little guidance as to how best to integrate this new technology into the classroom, it’s more important than ever to curate the many education products on the market to ensure your investments support innovative teaching and learning,” says Tech & Learning Content Director Christine Weiser. “Our judges chose the following nominated products based on their versatility, compatibility, value, and ability to help schools solve challenges and support continuous instruction. Congratulations to all of our winners.”
Here is how Tech & Learning judges viewed CTL devices:
The CTL Chromebook PX11E "Secure" boasts a secure transparent bottom for users to view its interior electronics. Our judges note: “The concept of a clear back may help with students trying to get into them, and the special screws and extra thread lock helps. But, the back may be a teacher tool as well and add to the "cool factor" of the device. Overall, a solid well built and spec'd device.”
The CTL Chromebox CBx3-7 is a small form-factor PC with an Intel Core i7-1355U processor that delivers speeds up to 5GHZ. “The ability to mount on the back of the screen, as well as the internal hardware configuration and port, makes this PC a real standout,” write our judges.
The CTL Chrome OS Bluetooth keyboard and mouse are Google-certified products that guarantee top performance for Chromebooks and Chromeboxes. “This is a very nice mouse and keyboard combo,” writes our judge. “I appreciate the forethought of the Google Everything and screen capture buttons”
