BenQ has announced a deal with Jordan’s Ministry of Education to provide more than 600 projectors, as part of its ambitious modernisation programme for schools across Jordan.

With Jordan’s ministry for education receiving $120 million from the World Bank recently, the ministry has been investing into advanced tools such as digital projectors as part of a coordinated drive to establish a modern infrastructure for Jordan’s school and colleges.

Computer Engineering Bureau (CEB)—BenQ’s distributor in Jordan—played an important role in winning the contract, but Ashraf Daqqa, distribution manager for CEB said the vision of the Jordanian government was crucial to the deal.

“We are delighted that the next generation in Jordan will be taught using these high definition tools. Digital projectors can provide razor sharp images in lessons ranging from science to advanced mathematics, and the ministry should be congratulated on their far-sighted vision in supplying such advanced technology,” said Daqqa.

BenQ’s DS/X 660 projectors are set to complement but not replace the traditional schooling tools such as over-head projectors, and writing boards by offering teachers advance tools to demonstrate key points in lectures as well as show educational films to students.

“The deal represents another step forward in Jordan’s modernisation programme, and we are delighted that BenQ is providing the tools that will illuminate learning for the next generation of students,” said Robert Dung, managing director, BenQ Middle East.

“It is important for BenQ to have strong partnerships so that we can deliver maximum value to our customers. Our work with Computer Engineering Bureau indicates that there is a huge opportunity for growth in providing technology to Jordan’s education sector,” added Dung.

Unveiled earlier in 2003, Jordan’s integrated education reform program, seeks to boost the scores of Jordanian students in international exams, implement online learning portals for primary and secondary students, and boost college enrolment levels.
