BenQ’s RP Series Interactive Displays Beat Out the Competition for Compatibility With Existing Teacher Software, Intuitive Cloud-Based Whiteboard Tools, Affordability, and More for Vanguard Academy, Rosewood Elementary, and Childers Middle School
COSTA MESA, Calif. — Sept. 14, 2021 — BenQ, an internationally renowned provider of visual display solutions, is the chosen interactive display manufacturer for Broken Arrow School District in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. The school district selected BenQ’s germ-resistant, 4K UHD RP Series interactive displays after testing and comparing interactive displays from other manufacturers. The IT and teaching staff ultimately chose BenQ RP Series for its cloud-based whiteboarding tools and cloud access, interoperability with teachers’ favorite software platforms, built-in speakers, ease of use, and affordability. The displays will be the collaboration hubs for the learning labs and makerspace in the state-of-the-art Vanguard Academy Innovation Center and the classrooms at Rosewood Elementary and Childers Middle School.
“We want our teachers to be empowered with technological flexibility that allows them to create an irresistible experience for students,” said Jason Jedamski, Director of Vanguard Academy. “Our goal is that our students are fully supported in solving real-world problems and pursuing their passions. With BenQ’s interactive displays in every learning lab and makerspace, our teachers and students will have the best technology at hand to achieve those goals in nontraditional ways and truly innovate.
BenQ Interactive Displays Complement Broken Arrow’s Learning Innovation
Broken Arrow’s Vanguard Academy has made news headlines for its visionary approach to learning and innovation. The new micro high school, which will serve 9th and 10th grades, features learning labs instead of traditional classrooms that are designed to allow teachers and students to innovate everything in the education experience. In addition to Vanguard, the BenQ interactive displays were installed throughout Rosewood Elementary, a new STEM school that opened in 2020 to serve K-5 students and help them develop into creative thinkers, problem solvers, and lifelong learners. The district also installed the BenQ displays in the recently upgraded Childers Middle School and may install more in other schools in the future.
Displays Built to Support Innovative Thinkers and Solution Seekers
BenQ’s RP Series is built from the ground up with input from the education community. The interactive displays boast the world’s only certified antimicrobial touch screen, minimizing the spread of germs in classrooms, and powerful front-facing speakers that everyone can hear. Fully cloud-integrated, the interactive displays’ EZWrite software lets teachers get started without any extensive training. In fact, teachers can step right into using it within minutes. EZWrite’s cloud whiteboard capabilities allow teachers as well as students to interact with the screen from their Chromebook, Surface, Mac, or any mobile device. Teachers simply tap the screen to select from versatile options available in the Floating Tool menu to make presentations and content more interesting. They can write on top of any app, video, website, document, or image. Whether using Windows, Mac, Chrome, or Android, a teacher can take notes on top of any content and save them to their chosen cloud platform, including Google Classroom and Dropbox. The screen capture capability lets teachers capture all or just part of the screen.
Platform Agnostic, Intuitive Displays for Effortless Teaching
BenQ’s interactive displays integrate with many of the tools and applications that teachers are already using, including Google, Zoom, whiteboard software, and other applications. BenQ’s Account Management System (AMS) allows them to conveniently access and manage their personal files, accounts, and settings like they would a computer. Schools also have the option of giving their staff personalized NFC cards, which provide fast, convenient panel login and access to their files and favorite programs when swiped in front of the NFC card reader built into the display.
“The learning innovation taking place in the Broken Arrow School District exemplifies everything we built our education interactive displays to support,” said Bob Wudeck, senior director of business development at BenQ America Corp. “The RP Series is a blank slate with powerful health, computational, cloud, collaboration, and engagement tools that help schools raise the bar for hybrid, virtual, or in-person learning and to constantly evolve.”
