25 Years of EdTech Innovation
EarthWalk is celebrating its 25th anniversary this month. As we reflect upon the evolution of technology used in education, and how we continue our mission to provide the latest digital tools for educators and students, it became clear that we had plenty to say. We’ve been leaders in developing reliable and top-quality classroom solutions to make it easier for teachers to have access to the latest technology tools and improve students’ interaction. That’s more than two and a half decades of expertise. And so, a blog was conceived.
K-12 Technology Provides Enriched Learning
In the education world today, we offer an evolving range of products to enrich students’ learning. Our technologies specifically provide advantages via improved computer access and literacy: Access to educational technology offers learning opportunities that develop students’ understanding of key concepts with an excitement for learning.
How EarthWalk’s Technology Has Evolved Over the Past 25 Years
EarthWalk’s history of classroom technology has taken many turns since our founding in 1996, and we’re proud of all we’ve been able to accomplish and provide to our customers. Here’s a snapshot of how our technologies have developed over time.
Innovative Leaders in EdTech
EarthWalk was the first company to incorporate wireless technology into student laptops.
We patented the technology system for secure, mobile charging carts to provide computer lab access for any classroom.
We were one of the pioneers to develop solutions for all-day laptop battery power to help students keep computer-based learning uninterrupted.
We engineered and patented a High-Efficiency electrical power management and battery power technology system that was adapter-free and energy efficient for charging multiple laptops—a first of its kind.
EarthWalk’s AC-SMART switching system, an electrical power management and charging system—and one of the world’s first of its kind—senses power consumption and distributes power where it’s needed, eliminating circuit overload.
Our exclusive Cart Art option personalizes carts and stations with unique, custom graphic decals such as school logos, sports mascots and classroom curricula images.
SolarWalk—In just the past few years, we announced the launch of SolarWalk, a solar power project development division. These solar power systems provide reliable, renewable electricity to schools and nonprofits through rooftop, ground mount and carport photovoltaic panel systems, saving millions of dollars in energy costs for many years.
CleanZone—As COVID-19 pandemic concerns shaped educational protocol, we stepped up to help provide solutions. Our industry-leading device decontamination technology uses ozone, a naturally occurring compound and classified as an oxidizing and disinfecting agent. Unlike UV technology, ozone is a heavy gas and can penetrate every corner of the enclosed carts and stations, effectively killing up to 99.9% of pathogens on all surfaces. And once the ozone dissipates, it decomposes back into oxygen molecules—leaving no harmful residue or odor.
Innovative American Company
EarthWalk prides itself on developing and building our products right here in America, just outside of Washington, DC. Our customer support is in the United States, our sales team is in the United States and our technical support is in the United States. We stand by our products and we make sure that ultimately our customers are satisfied.
