About Us

Simply teaching.

Mimio began in 1997 with a singular philosophy: to make learning more engaging for students, with technology that makes it easier for teachers to do what they do best - teach.

Mimio was born by way of some very creative thinkers at MIT. Using engineering problem/solution methodology, they realized that students were so occupied with furious note-taking, they weren’t fully paying attention to their lessons. Then they wondered, “What if there was a way to obtain the whiteboard notes, formulas, and drawings without having to write everything down?” Their passion for discovery led them to invent what became the MimioCapture™ tracking system. Students could finally concentrate on each lesson, and obtain the notes afterward.

As Mimio grew, numerous breakthrough innovations helped educators focus more on teaching and students concentrate more on learning. The result has been a long history of educational awards and worldwide recognition.

Leadership in education. Today and tomorrow.

Today, Mimio is a global leader in interactive teaching technologies. And we haven’t stopped exploring the future, seeking answers that initially seem impossible. We’ve invested years of research. We’ve linked world-class engineers with top educators. All to develop solutions that set exciting new standards for the industry.

The result is the brand-new MimioClassroom™ family of products, our best teaching tools ever. The complications of other interactive technologies have been eliminated. Replaced by a fully integrated system that allows you to add the tools you need, when you need them. And that allows more active participation by students to improve their learning.

Imagine being able to focus on teaching because the technology doesn’t get in the way—it makes it easier. Imagine students who learn more because it's more fun. That’s what we think about every day, and it’s the reason why Mimio products stand apart in the world of interactive teaching.
