Texas Instruments Announces TI-Innovator

UPDATE: I have posted a hands on TI-Innovator review.

Continuing to build their brand as a way to teach and learn STEM skills in the classroom, Texas Instruments has announced exciting new hardware, the TI-Innovator Hub. The TI-Innovator was created using the TI LaunchPad Board technology and is designed as a classroom tool that introduces students to coding and engineering design.

“The TI-Innovator allows students to get hands-on with technology and not even realize they are learning important STEM principles, like coding, that they need to be successful in the classroom today, in college tomorrow and in their careers in the future,” said Peter Balyta, Ph.D., president of TI Education Technology. “The opportunities for exploration are endless; students’ imaginations are their only limits.”

Promotional videos and photos show students using the TI-Innovator to code and interact with robots using their Texas Instruments. Best of all, the device works on both major TI platforms, the TI-Nspire CX and TI-84 Plus CE. I’m quite interested to try it out and hope to review it soon from the perspective of a long time educator and current STEM practitioner.
