2022 has been another rollercoaster year with highs, lows and loop-de-loops galore. With 2023 now firmly in sight, the team at HUE has taken some time to reflect and look back at our favorite experiences from the past year that have brought us joy, laughter and lightbulb moments.
We had to buy an even bigger trophy cabinet!
2022 was a bumper year for awards with HUE Animation Studio and the HUE HD Pro document camera winning awards from the Creative Play, Tech & Learning, Junior Design, Comenius Edumedia and many, many more.
It was full STEAM ahead for HUE Animation Studio
HUE Animation Studio met the criteria in all three areas of The Toy Association™’s (STEAM) toy assessment framework (Gummer & Taylor, 2020):
- Characteristics of a ‘good toy’.
- Prime STEAM attributes.
- Specific STEM categories.
We made 45,000* friends on Instagram!
*Technically this didn’t all happen in 2022, but, we are thrilled to have reached this fantastic milestone and gotten to know so many amazing teachers over on IG.
If you want to join the party, head over to @HUEcameras on Instagram for giveaways, news, fun, frivolity, and some serious teaching ideas.
Hot off the press!
Animation-loving macOS users were given something to sing about this year when we upgraded HUE Animation Studio in December 2022.
A perpetual single-user license of the excellent Stop Motion Studio software, compatible with Windows 10 or later and macOS 11+, is now included in the kit.
Existing HUE Animation users should visit huehd.com/sms to find out more and to download Stop Motion Studio software if desired (T&Cs apply).
We celebrated even more amazing teachers
Long time subscribers of the HUE blog will know how much we love sharing teaching tips and ideas from the HUE Community and 2022 was no exception as we launched our Teachers In Focus blog.
We received contributions from around the globe covering almost every curriculum subject and education level from Kindergarten to University.
Highlights this year came from art teacher Mariú Escoto, math teacher Sammy White, and STEM Learning Coaches Ashley Faulkner and Josh Rayburn, who all shared the varied, wonderful ways they use their HUE cameras.
We visited some old friends and made some new ones
After two years of lockdowns and travel restrictions we could not resist our wanderlust to explore, see old acquaintances and make some new friends. Did you see us at Bett UK, GESS Türkiye, ISTE New Orleans or Educ@Tech Paris?
Teamwork made the dream work
We teamed up with some of the best names in teacher tech to bring you some incredible giveaways, inspiring ideas and quality content. How many of these amazing companies do you know?
We had to learn some new languages
Due to popular demand we made it even easier for teachers to purchase HUE cameras by opening up seven new Amazon stores around the world in Poland, Netherlands, Sweden, Türkiye, Australia, Belgium and Mexico. We now know how to say “HUE document cameras are amazing” in more than 20 languages!
2022 was also the year for us to show our support in the form of sponsorship of organizations, podcasts and individuals close to our hearts. Take a look at VIP Reading, Animation Industry Podcast, The Olympic Mindset Podcast, D&T Association and Teachmeeticons.
As the year draws to a close, the team at HUE wishes everyone an amazing holiday season and a bright and happy New Year! And finally, we’d like to take this opportunity to say a huge THANK YOU to all our fantastic customers, resellers, collaborators and HUE Crew supporters!
