Four companies presented at March’s Baltimore TechBreakfast, including downtown Baltimore education technology startup 1sqbox.
At $249 apiece, 1sqbox’s proprietary, Android OS tablets, as well as its lesson planning software, are already in use at City Springs Middle School, where the EdTech startup conducted a pilot project last spring, as Technically Baltimore reported.
The software, which incorporates tools for teachers in addition to lesson planning, such as a quiz creation tool and a homework assignment calendar, is sold at $199 per license. (Parents are provided the software for free, while schools typically pay licenses for the principal, teachers and students.) Although, at schools eligible for Title I funding, licenses are sold for $99 each.
The other startups that presented at March Baltimore TechBreakfast:
- LegalLogs.com: an online dashboard for divorce lawyers to interact with their clients, as well as a document log for people going through divorce so they can keep accurate records of papers and evidence they’ll need to present in court. It’s been live for 30 days, and will eventually cost $40 per user. (Right now the price per user is $20.)
- Baltimore DataMind, the interactive mapping tool that pulls data from OpenBaltimore, U.S. Census figures and data points collected by the Baltimore Neighborhood Indicators Alliance-Jacob France Institute at the University of Baltimore.
- ImageShare: A web-based, cloud-hosted health IT tool from startup Vigilant Medical that enables physicians at different hospitals to upload images of imaging studies and e-mail or transfer them to other hospitals and physicians. ImageShare is presently used by the neuroscience team at Johns Hopkins.
The morning was rounded up, full disclosure, by Technically Baltimore cofounders Brian James Kirk and Christopher Wink who demoed this site’s responsive web design, directory and mission.
