Secure, durable, and lightweight, the Belkin Secure Wired Keyboard connects directly and securely to a single iPad or Samsung tablet, and it does not require batteries or recharging, making it an ideal partner for standardized testing. The slender, ergonomic design features well-spaced keys made specifically for the classroom. Its plug and play simplicity enables reliable and easy use. The Belkin Secure Wired Keyboard also includes a correct connect diagnostic indicator, allowing teachers, administrators, and students to verify proper connection via one button push.
"Bluetooth wireless keyboards are not always permitted in school testing environments, and battery-powered or rechargeable keyboards can run out of power at unfortunate moments, with unfair consequences," said Jon Roepke, director of product management, Belkin International. "The Belkin Secure Wired Keyboard addresses this concern with durable construction, a child-friendly configuration, and 'no batteries required' approach to ensure reliable use at any grade level in the classroom."
The new keyboard features integrated multimedia controls that support advanced learning needs. A row of function keys offers convenient one-touch access to a variety of functions, including volume, play/pause, fast-forward and rewind, screen lock, screen capture, and more. Full-size arrow keys allow users to navigate easily through documents and websites.
