BenQ, the global exclusive distributor of Google Jamboard, is taking STEM/STEAM classrooms and project-based learning to the next level with Google Jamboard â€” the only display from the creators of Google. Wisconsin STEM solutions provider PHabLAB tested and selected the Jamboard for its turnkey makerspace offering. To date, the company has deployed the interactive display in 16 area schools.
“Jamboard is designed for collaboration, harnessing the power of Google and ongoing innovation that’s baked into its ecosystem,” said Greg Herker, director of business development at PHabLAB. “Next year and every year after that, Jamboard will still to be a new toy â€” without any additional investment. It’s perfect for schools and STEM environments, which are all about new ways of problem solving and the future.”
As Google Classroom quickly becomes the dominant web service for schools, Jamboard is a natural fit for classrooms and STEM/STEAM labs. Since COVID-19, Google Classroom use has surged to more than 100 million users worldwide. Because Google Workspace and Google Meet are natively integrated with Jamboard, PHabLAB knew it would offer teachers and students a rich experience with tools they already know how to use so they can get started right away. Teachers simply log into their Google Classroom account right from the screen to access all their files and apps or to start a Google Meet session. When students or instructors build content, those files can also be saved and shared with the class just as if they were working at a computer.
