Wixie Is Now Natively Available on the BenQ Boards, Allowing Students to Create Artwork, Interactive Books, Animations, and More Directly from the Smart Board

 

COSTA MESA, Calif. — June 6, 2024 — BenQ, an internationally renowned provider of visual display and collaboration solutions, today announced that Wixie is now available on its BenQ Boards. Wixie is an app students use to explore the curriculum and demonstrate mastery through a combination of text, paint, images, voice, and video. Teachers use Wixie to manage and evaluate student work, providing real-time feedback and evaluating student effort. This partnership reflects BenQ's continuous commitment to providing direct access to a growing app and learning software portfolio that educators use daily from their BenQ Boards, streamlining the classroom for the future.


“The key differentiator of the BenQ Board is how easily it integrates with the tools, systems, and applications educators are already using for student engagement,” said Carly Burton-Sallay, senior marketing manager at BenQ Education. “Wixie is one of those tools. Relied upon by hundreds of thousands of teachers and students, with integration into the BenQ Board, it works as seamlessly from our smart board as it does from their favorite personal device."

The BenQ Boards are purpose-built for teachers so that they can provide exciting learning opportunities from the moment they sign on. Encouraging active participation in class while protecting student and teacher health, the germ-resistant BenQ Boards boast BenQ’s Tap ‘N Teach technology, which features one-tap NFC login to load lesson materials and interactive teaching apps, cloud storage, settings, and tools instantly and securely. The smart boards also feature a germ-resistant screen, pen, and remote; split windows for multitasking; array microphones; 16W speakers with 16W Dolby Digital Plus surround sound; InstaShare wireless screen sharing; new Eyesafe® technology for reducing blue light emissions; and more.

 

“With Wixie, schools can simplify life with one tool for students to share their ideas, imagination, and understanding through their writing, art, voice, and video,” said Danielle Abernethy, partnerships manager at Wixie. “By partnering with BenQ Education, we further that goal, bringing much greater ease and more opportunities to use Wixie to spur engagement, collaboration, and learning in the classroom.”

 

Teachers can use their BenQ Board as a whiteboard, display, computer, and wireless screen-sharing system, thanks to BenQ's license-free EZWrite 6 software. It's packed with classroom tools for all subjects, including timers, rulers, protractors, compasses, and more. EZWrite 6 also lets educators save whiteboard sessions in the cloud, allowing them to continue giving lessons at a later date or allowing students to access lessons on any device and refer to them later. They can also open documents and image files directly on the whiteboard to facilitate discussions. To complement the experience, the split-screen windows function enables multiple applications to be opened side by side — with no need to tap between content — making it even easier to conduct lessons and further comprehension.
