Jamboard All-in-One Interactive Display Now Available from BenQ for 50% Off MSRP, Fully Interoperable With Google for Education and Google Meet Video Conferencing Platforms
COSTA MESA, Calif. — Aug. 13, 2020 — BenQ, the exclusive enterprise partner for Google Jamboard and an internationally renowned provider of visual display and collaboration solutions, is helping Google for Education schools and universities set up budget-friendly, intuitive hybrid classrooms. For a limited time, the plug-and-play Jamboard video conferencing and digital collaboration solution is available for 50% off MSRP through BenQ.
“We recognize that schools are under a tremendous amount of pressure to build the best learning environment for students in classrooms as well as for those joining remotely,” said Alex Mooney, manager of marketing and presales for BenQ America Corp. “This poses several challenges, including providing teachers with audio, video, and collaboration equipment that is easy to use and helps create engaging lessons for all students. We’ve lowered the cost of the Jamboard to make it even more affordable to outfit classrooms quickly and with all the best tools teachers need to create a great hybrid Google for Education learning experience out of the box.”
Helps Teachers Go From Zero to Hybrid in Minutes
Developed to create a seamless interactive Google for Education experience from the cloud to the classroom and from a display to personal devices, Google Jamboard integrates digital whiteboard technology, Google Meet video conferencing, cloud connectivity, and G Suite. The 55-inch 4K UHD multitouch display puts teaching materials stored in teachers’ personal Google Drive and digital whiteboard collaboration tools right at their fingertips. The intuitive tools are simple to learn, and the various drawing, writing, and sketching options encourage creativity.
Launches Video Conferencing With Ease
Using Google Meet, teachers can launch a video conference directly from the Jamboard with a tap of the app or the meeting reminder on their calendar, quickly bringing in remote students and guests. The built-in wide-angle camera, microphone, and speakers mean that teachers don’t have to worry about operating separate devices to launch video conferences with remote students. All participants can collaborate on the digital whiteboard, and teachers can save the session as well as any notes written on the board to their Google Classroom.
Feels Natural — and Exciting
With innovative machine learning tools such as handwriting recognition, shape recognition, and AutoDraw, staff and students of all ages will enjoy working through math problems, brainstorming creative writing ideas, or hypothesizing on science experiments. It’s easy to sketch ideas, drop images, add notes, and pull assets directly from the web or Google Drive. The Jamboard features a surface with 16 points of simultaneous touch that is responsive and lag-free. Users can move and resize objects just as naturally as on a phone or tablet. Or they can use the included battery-free styluses and eraser that function without complicated pairing or setups.
Instructors can present information on slides and write notes on the whiteboard without switching between apps. Any created content is automatically saved to the Google Classroom, eliminating that extra step for teachers and making it accessible for students to study later.
Supports More Than 40 Million Google Classroom Users
Jamboard’s collaborative nature sparks creativity and increases student engagement. Everyone can participate in classroom brainstorm activities from anywhere and from any device, whether it’s a laptop, Chromebook, smartphone, or tablet using the Jamboard app or website with real-time co-authoring across devices. During collaborative discussions, students can open the app and write responses, create images, and add sticky notes that will pop up on the Jamboard in real time for everyone to see.
Helps IT and Technology Staff Manage the New Digital Load
As hybrid and remote learning become the new norm, IT administrators and tech support will have an increasing number of devices to manage, monitor, and troubleshoot. The Google admin console gives them the access and tools they need to easily manage their Jamboards and other classroom resources throughout a building, within a district, or across a campus remotely from their workstation.
The Jamboard ships with a wall mount, or it can be mounted on an optional rolling stand for added flexibility.
