Educational Institutions in USA have access to Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER) under CARES Act, CRRSA, and American Rescue Plan, aimed at providing an appropriate response to COVID-19 pandemic in K12 schools and districts. 

The stimulus is aimed to help school resolve 4 main issue directly and indirectly related to the coronavirus: 

  • Planning for and coordinating long term school closures, including preparing for remote, online learning (ESSER I, II, II)\
  • Providing Educational Technology that enriches regular and substantive education (ESSER I, II, III)
  • Planning and implementing plans for summer learning and after-school programs (ESSER I, II, III)
  • Addressing learning loss among students (including but not limited to tracking student attendance and improving engagement in remote education) (ESSER II, III)

The government provides nearly $190.5 billion USD to K12 institutions throughout 2020 and 2021 as part of the 3 mentioned Acts.

Addressing learning loss through the implementation of evidence-based instruction.

How BenQ can help?

Not all students have equal access to lessons remotely, which led some of them to incur significant learning losses during blended learning model implementation as a response to pandemic. One of the issues leading to this is that some of the families have access to only one device, but more than 1 student at home, or poor internet connection. You can see how attending classes remotely real-time can be an issue for some. 

Class recording capabilities of BenQ Interactive Displays allow you to share your lessons with students so they can review them at any moment available. You can also save the content of your class by saving and sharing the IWB file you created in EZWrite. Your students can not only watch, but also listen to your recorded class in high quality too, thanks to Array Microphones embedded in RP02 Series Interactive Displays. Sharing files, recording classes, and collaborating any time, anywhere has never been easier!
