COSTA MESA, Calif. — May 25, 2021 — BenQ, the exclusive distributor for Google Jamboard and an internationally renowned provider of visual display and collaboration solutions, is helping teachers and students seamlessly transition into the 2021-2022 school year and adapt to hybrid classroom models. Now through June 30, the plug-and-play Google Jamboard 4K UHD interactive display is available exclusively through BenQ for $999 and comes with a free Google Classroom license valued at $600 for current Google Workspace for Education customers.
“As the 2021-2022 new school year begins, we recognize there are still a lot of changes and uncertainties ahead. Some schools are going back to in-school learning, some are remaining virtual, and some are adopting a combination of the two,” said Penny Su, Business Unit Director, Google Jamboard & Enterprise Collaboration Solutions for BenQ America Corp. “Jamboard is designed to create digital equality in hybrid classrooms and provide teachers with an intuitive, interactive solution that is proven to increase student engagement.”
The hybrid classroom model poses several challenges, including lack of AV/IT support, teachers being unfamiliar with technical capabilities, and creating effective ways to bridge the communication gap between in-school and remote learning students. To address these, Google Jamboard provides a series of tools to help make distance learning interactive, save teachers time, and increase student engagement. Available exclusively through BenQ, Jamboard is a complete, all-in-one 55-inch 4K UHD multitouch display that provides digital whiteboarding functions and full-screen video conferencing. Using Jamboard, teachers can keep lessons interesting, so students will want to naturally participate. With Google Classroom, Google Meet, and Google Drive built-in, educators can easily arrange learning activities with Google applications that are already familiar to them while accessing and leveraging their existing Google-based teaching materials. In addition, its native integration with G Suite unifies communication so teachers can actively monitor student progress with ease. Teachers also have access to free Jamboard templates created by teachers for teachers, allowing them to get started faster with effective materials for learning.
