Learning Without Boundaries

Hybrid learning spaces ensure your school’s operational resilience. When faced with setbacks, having the option to shift to hybrid mode guarantees that learning never stops. Learn how to futureproof your classrooms with the right technologies.

The CARES Act & BenQ

Through the Education Stabilization Fund (ESF) of the CARES Act, the US government is helping COVID-affected schools and their students get back on track through investments in educational technology. The ESF covers a wide range of solutions that can help schools become more flexible and resilient. Choosing the right ones can maximize the return on investment.

The ESF is composed of three main emergency relief funds:

ESSER

ESSER

Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund

K-12 schools can use the ESSERF to purchase educational technologies that help facilitate interaction between students and their educators.

ESSER

HEER

Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund

Higher education institutions can use the HEERF to cover the costs involved in improving the way they hold classes or deliver instructions to students.

ESSER

GEER

Governor’s Emergency Education Relief Fund

As of April 2021, the US government has allotted over USD 280 billion in funds to alleviate the effects of the pandemic to education.

Futureproof Classrooms

If there is anything the pandemic has exposed about the way we conduct classes, it’s that traditional in-person learning may not always be possible. Schools need to be able to provide education to students regardless of future challenges.

In a survey conducted by the World Economic Forum, 72% of respondents believe that over the next five years, education will be conducted either fully online or via a hybrid learning setup.

Whether or not your school already has plans to adopt hybrid learning, it’s best to make this decision with the right information at hand.

Still confused about hybrid classrooms?

We developed an ebook which details the short- and long-term advantages of hybrid learning setups and ways to implement it.

Hybrid Learning Checklist

Are you looking for EdTech for your school but aren’t sure where to start? We did a review of the common items top universities consider when selecting EdTech and condensed them into a simple checklist.

  • Internet connection: Does your school’s internet connection need an upgrade to support hybrid classes?

  • Hybrid and remote capabilities: Does your school’s internet connection need an upgrade to support hybrid classes?

  • Lesson utility: Are there classroom tools that can be used to:

    • Whiteboard?
    • Present slides?
    • Access and display online content?
    • Play audiovisual files?
    • Run special software needed for lessons?
  • Ease of use: Are these tools simple enough for teachers and students to understand and use?
