The Texas School District Selected BenQ Boards and Smart Displays for Their Flexibility, Ease of Use, Centralized Management, and Continuous Support

 

COSTA MESA, Calif. — March 26, 2024 — BenQ, an internationally renowned provider of visual display and collaboration solutions, today announced that Manor Independent School District in Manor, Texas, has selected and installed BenQ Boards and BenQ Smart Displays in Manor New Tech High School, Manor Early College High School, Manor Rise Academy, Wildhorse Elementary, and Manor Elementary Early Learning Center and new Transportation Facility. The smart boards and digital signage displays were selected for their simple, secure, and streamlined approach to the future of EdTech. With BenQ’s license-free and future-ready EZ Write 6 software, InstaShare wireless presentation system, and technology administration tools AMS, DMS, and X-Sign solutions, the BenQ displays have become the new technology standard for the growing school district.

 

“BenQ continuously demonstrates the way it supports today’s teachers and staff while enhancing learning in exciting ways for students," stated David Gonzalez, Director of Technology at Manor ISD. “BenQ's comprehensive suite of solutions provides us with the best of the best and aligns perfectly with our vision of simplifying and standardizing technology districtwide. Now our teachers can focus on what matters most — delivering high-quality instruction to our students.”

 

After rigorous evaluation and comparison against other smart board vendors, Manor ISD chose BenQ to bring its schools into the future. The Google EDLA-certified BenQ Boards empower teachers to teach their way, whether they choose to use the whiteboard, share their screen wirelessly, or load lessons from the web. Making the transition to the BenQ Board smart boards is simple with the award-winning EZ Write 6 software. Teachers can do it all with this license-free annotation and collaboration software designed to fit any teaching style. It allows teachers to use any interactive course and existing IWB files to make lesson building a snap. Users have the freedom to annotate and work directly from the interactive display or a wirelessly connected device. When teachers are creating or presenting lessons, EZ Write’s Floating Tool empowers them to add text to any app, video, website, document, or image. They can also choose the pen color, erase, open files, or take screenshots.

 

In addition, BenQ Boards feature InstaShare 2, the award-winning wireless casting system that allows multiple users to share to the screen simultaneously as well as create split screen lessons with a single tap and enable cloud whiteboarding for students to contribute and write on the screen from wherever they're located — whether in the class or joining remotely. From the smart board, teachers can quickly log into their cloud platforms and apps, including Google Classroom, ClassLink, and others.

 

BenQ also features Device Management Solution (DMS) and Account Management System (AMS), which allow the district’s small tech team to remotely configure settings, push updates, monitor device analytics, and manage user permissions. These solutions are not only free, eliminating the need of the district’s former control and management solution that was costly and complicated, but also provide simplified, centralized management, reducing the burden on Manor ISD's IT staff responsible for managing 24 schools. This streamlined approach enables educators to focus more on teaching and instruction, rather than troubleshooting technical issues.

 

Finally, recognizing the growing importance of digital signage and the ability to broadcast announcements and alerts throughout schools, BenQ Boards, and smart displays benefit from the company’s X-Sign digital signage software. X-Sign turns any BenQ smart board or smart display in the school’s network into broadcast signage and allows schools to keep everyone informed and up to date on events, safety protocols, and emergencies.

 

“As educational institutions strive to meet the evolving needs of students and educators, it’s imperative that they adopt solutions offering seamless integration, versatility, and innovation,” said Bob Wudeck, senior director of business development at BenQ Education. “Our BenQ Boards epitomize the modern classroom ecosystem, providing educators with the tools they need to teach their way while fostering collaboration and engagement that is the future of learning. Manor ISD’s decision to select BenQ reflects their commitment to preparing students for success in an increasing digital world, and we are honored to be a trusted partner in their journey toward educational excellence."
