Eduporium is a nationwide provider of EdTech for K-12 schools, libraries, makerspaces, and colleges in the US. Though they got started as simply a reseller, they learned quickly that educators need more than that. They need transparency, they need accuracy, they need quick solutions, and they often need guidance when it comes to discovering and integrating new STEM tools in teaching. So, now, in addition to providing a one-stop online shop on which educators can purchase EdTech and makerspace tools from a variety of brands, Eduporium also delivers peace of mind with purchases, open communication, and a simplified shopping experience for innovative educators.
The main benefit that Eduporium offers to STEM education teachers is their one-stop shopping experience. They have developed relationships with many of the leading brands in STEM teaching and learning, including Ozobot, littleBits, Wonder Workshop, Sphero, DJI, and more, allowing them to offer a comprehensive shopping experience for any makerspace, classroom, or STEM lab. By consolidating all these tech tools, they’ve helped optimize EdTech purchasing and created an experience that’s more personal and hassle-free.
Working with such a variety of technologies – from robotics and circuitry to drones and virtual reality – the team at Eduporium has developed subject matter expertise on STEM education and the tools that can help teach it. Their team includes former educators, allowing them to leverage unique insights when determining what works best in contemporary learning environments. Most importantly to members of the education community, Eduporium partners directly with school and district administrators, classroom teachers, technology specialists, librarians, and others to deliver the STEM solutions they need while always working to develop their customer relationships.
In terms of customer service and support, Eduporium offers free, one-on-one consultation for educators at all stages of the buyer’s journey. This includes learning about the resources they currently have, what they need, and what they want to accomplish with technology, allowing the team at Eduporium to then provide personalized EdTech recommendations that align with educators’ vision and budget. They also offer an Educator Discount, provide quotes, accept purchase orders, and award a grant every month.
Eduporium is on various state and nationwide purchasing contacts, like TIPS and MHEC, which helps save educators time and effort when purchasing new technology. They also lead both virtual and in-person trainings and workshops to help educators new to certain technologies learn more about how to use them on basic and advanced levels.
