For months, schools have been facing the difficult test of the “mixed regime”: never before in this period it’s essential to monitor the air quality in closed spaces, and BenQ’s ClassroomCare technology is at the forefront.
The partial return of presence in the classroom under the Covid-19 regime has forced schools and universities to address the delicate issue of safety in physical classes without delay. As stated by the WHO, closed and poorly ventilated environments are exposed to higher risks in terms of contagion, without considering the known side effects of low ventilation: headache, drowsiness and loss of concentration, all factors that they reduce student engagement and make learning content more difficult to memorize. This is why it is important that schools have the tools to monitor the air quality in classrooms.
The choice of BenQ, with ClassroomCare technology launched as early as 2012, contributes to safety: “Our interactive displays” – says Steve Chu, President of BenQ Europe – “are equipped with features that help students to learning in a safe and healthy environment. Smart tools such as air quality sensors, integrated into interactive displays, create awareness at any time of the day and help individuals to safeguard everyone’s safety.”
The air quality sensors of BenQ interactive displays measure not only the temperature and humidity of the room, but also the concentration of CO2 and PM2.5 and PM10 atmospheric particles, potentially harmful to students and teachers. A handy widget on the screen helps teachers keep an eye on the values measured in the room, in order to intervene when necessary. Another important technology integrated into BenQ displays is the Eye-Care solution, for ocular well-being. Activating automatically when the situation requires it, it guarantees the lowest blue light emission and an anti-flicker visual experience. In addition, the screens are equipped with a coating based on silver nano-ions that kills bacteria on contact, preventing the spread of possible infections.
From the point of view of sharing and ease of learning, it’s obvious that interactive displays represent a significant step forward for educational institutions. The EZWrite cross-platform solution allows students, even from home, to save files to their personal cloud storage and teachers to take screenshots of any portion of the display screen, including content from apps, websites and videos from any source. To complete the offer of BenQ interactive displays is added X-Sign Broadcast, a contemporary version of the more traditional instant messaging systems. With X-Sign Broadcast, the school administration can broadcast messages, including emergency alerts and multimedia content, to all displays in the school, to a selected group or even to a single display.
