SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - Jan 22, 2014) - Beamz Interactive, Inc. (OTCQB: BZIC), a leading developer of state-of-the-art interactive music products, today announced that it will be exhibiting its latest Beamz Education and Healthcare controller at this year's BETT Show January 22 - 25, 2014 at the ExCeL Centre in London, UK (Booth B461).
Celebrating its 30th year, the BETT Show (formerly known as the British Educational Training and Technology Show) is the global meeting place for the education technology community and is one of the world's leading learning technology events, bringing together 35,000 educators and learning professionals every January. BETT attracts visitors from over 100 different countries including school leaders and practitioners. Around 700 technology companies who market to schools, colleges and education establishments exhibit at the show.
"We are delighted that Beamz will be exhibiting at BETT this year," said Charlie Mollo, CEO of Beamz Interactive. "Attracting visitors from around the world, BETT is a perfect venue for Beamz to showcase its Education and Healthcare product offering, raise awareness and meet with prospective UK and international partners and customers. Since launching the Beamz Education and Healthcare product this past year in the UK, we have found Beamz to be particularly well received within the special needs area."
During BETT Show 2014 (Booth B461), Beamz Interactive will demonstrate the new Beamz Education and Healthcare product line, which allows children of all ages and abilities to experience the fun and excitement of creating interactive music by moving their hands through laser beams. The Beamz interactive music system is currently used in hundreds of special education classrooms, pull-out rooms and OT and PT settings to teach skills including cause and effect, directionality, sequencing, fine and gross motor skills, common core subjects and more.
The universal design of Beamz gives students of any cognitive or physical ability instant access to hundreds of musical instruments and songs from every genre. Adaptive peripherals such as switches and keyboards, as well as interactive whiteboards and touch screen devices can be used to provide just the right amount of support for every learner or therapy recipient.
"Beamz delivers an exciting approach to learning while building self-esteem and independence," said Rod Lewis, Managing Director of Beamz Europe. "As part of our outreach efforts in the UK, Beamz units have already been supplied to Hampshire Autism, Berkshire Autism, as well as Anglian Autism. In addition, we have supplied units to Southampton General Children's Hospital and received excellent feedback. Beamz is truly a remarkable device that combines high-tech gadgetry, with that special sense of 'awe' from a child, more than anything I've worked with over the years."
The Beamz Education and Healthcare product is compatible with multiple platforms (PC, Mac and Apple iOS) and comes supplied with 50 songs across all genres. In addition, Beamz has developed new activity guides, which provide structured activities that showcase how Beamz can be used in many different settings for a variety of purposes. The Beamz music system has become an important device for children of all abilities because music is such an excellent vehicle to teach learning concepts and achieve developmental milestones.
