Merlyn Mind, makers of the industry-leading AI voice assistant for teachers, and Newline Interactive, a global leader in interactive displays and AV solutions, today announced a new partnership that offers educators a seamless and user-friendly experience through the integration of Merlyn AI with Newline interactive panels.

“At Merlyn Mind, we believe that leveraging the power of AI to understand human language will make tech easier to use and will change teaching and learning forever,” says Merlyn Mind’s Levi Belnap. “We’re thrilled to partner with Newline because they’re one of the leaders in bringing helpful, user-friendly tech into the classroom. With Merlyn, teachers can now use natural language voice commands to access all of the Newline features they know and love from anywhere in their classroom. That’s a win for teachers and their students.”

Newline's Q and Q Pro Series displays, known for their state-of-the-art features and user-friendly design, now offers Merlyn Mind’s AI capabilities. This integration allows educators to leverage  generative AI during active instruction. Merlyn Mind's advanced AI leads to more teacher-student engagement, fosters higher-order thinking, and makes space for improved learning outcomes.  

Merlyn Mind’s AI makes Newline interactive panels easier to use than ever before. For the first time in history, computers can speak our language. Through natural language voice commands, educators can access a comprehensive set of features on the Q and Q Pro, including whiteboard functionalities, annotations, screenshot capabilities, control of the built-in browser, and more.

"At Newline Interactive, we are committed to pushing the boundaries of collaborative technology to transform the way people learn and work together,” said Chris Bradford, President of Newline Interactive. “The partnership with Merlyn Mind aligns perfectly with our vision, bringing together the best of interactive displays and advanced AI for a truly immersive and productive experience.
