Spaces4Learning Names Lightspeed’s Mobile PA A Platinum 2023 New Product Award Winner
Unveiled just last September, Spaces4Learning recognized Lightspeed’s Mobile PA as the top audio enhancement solution
TUALATIN, ORE. (August 8, 2023) – Lightspeed, the provider of instructional audio solutions that create equal access to learning, announces that the company’s Mobile PA solution was named a Platinum 2023 New Product Award winner by Spaces4Learning. The annual awards program honors the outstanding product development achievements of education companies whose services or solutions are particularly noteworthy in their ability to enhance the learning environment.
A portable, all-in-one instructional audio system, Mobile PA extends the learning environment beyond the classroom and provides a clear, even distribution of sound—no matter where learning takes place. Unveiled in September 2022, Mobile PA ensures students can hear their teachers’ voices. In addition, Mobile PA is easy to move, Bluetooth enabled and includes a built-in charging cradle and storage for two wireless microphones so educators can use Lightspeed’s Mobile PA solution throughout their school each day.
According to the latest Gradient Learning Poll, 80% of educators are concerned about their students’ lack of engagement in classroom-based learning. While there are several indicators that help educators track engagement, 77% of educators noted that the level of student participation in discussions helps them assess if students are engaged and connecting with instruction.
“Mobile PA lowers the barrier to listening, learning and engaging in large and outdoor spaces—such as lunchrooms, PE classes and more,” said Shaun Fagan, Senior Vice President of Product at Lightspeed. “We know from numerous research studies the benefits of instructional audio for all students and the importance of clear, evenly distributed sound. When we unveiled Mobile PA last September, our goal was to provide more engagement opportunities and ensure an equitable learning experience for all students, no matter the learning environment. We are honored to be recognized by the Spaces4Learning team and look forward to furthering our mission to help every student hear every word.”
A panel of curated judges in the education space selected Mobile PA and the other winners.
“We congratulate all of our 2023 Spaces4Learning New Product Award winners and thank them for the work they are doing for education,” added David Nagel, Editorial Director of Spaces4Learning. “Our winners are helping to make the nation’s schools safer, cleaner, more sustainable and more conducive to fulfilling the mission of education in every way.”
