CTL Chromebook NL7TW Named 'Best of Show' by Tech & Learning at the ISTE 2018 Chicago Conference

BEAVERTON, Ore., July 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- CTL ( recently brought home another win from the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) 2018 Chicago education technology conference. Winners of an ISTE award last year for their convertible Chromebook, this year the Oregon-based tech company brought home the distinction for the CTL Chromebook NL7TW. Tech & Learning's prestigious award is widely recognized as an industry standard for quality, excellence and innovation.

The ISTE conference allows thousands of tech companies, programmers and designers the opportunity to showcase their newest cutting-edge products. The show floor displayed a great deal of edtech this year for the panel of anonymous ISTE judges — edtech like the CTL Chromebook NL7TW. The judges put all of the new equipment through rigorous tests to ensure that the ISTE prizes were well earned. CTL will be featured with other winners in the upcoming August issue of Tech & Learning.

"We're very excited to take home the 'Best of Show' from this year's ISTE conference. Being honored by your peers is the highest form of praise, and we're especially proud that our newest Chromebook caught the judges' attention. The CTL Chromebook NL7TW is designed for the most demanding users, and works in rough conditions: rugged daily use by multiple kids in a K–12 education atmosphere. If our products can survive that and keep doing their job exceptionally well, we know we've created a success," CMO Mike Mahanay said.
