Our district has installed

Our district has installed this concept in virtually all 6-12 classrooms. The system, accompanied by a stereo speaker system mounted in the ceiling, allows for all computer functions (inclusive of DVD and streaming video) and cable television to be better utilized as teaching and learning aids. We have a number of teachers who have transferred all their lessons to PowerPoint, integrating visuals and video. Not only does this better keep the attention of students, it also provides an easy study guide for absentees. One of our Spanish teachers was the Iowa World Language Teacher-of-the-Year last year. This tool assists in bringing her classroom to life! Other teachers make extensive use of the concept for group projects and presentations. This has been a powerful tool for our staff!

I have only been a teacher

I have only been a teacher for five years, however, I have used a projector as an essential part of my teaching. Last year I installed the salling clicker software on my powerbook and now I can use my sony bluetooth phone to control my presentations, control itunes, dvd player and even control the mouse! The salling clicker software is a great tool for anyone using an apple computer with a projector. I think they may even have a windows version now. One final point related to projectors in the classroom. In working with many teachers as they try to make meager attempts at integrating technology into their instruction, I think that a lot of pressure is put on them to create and make these "technology-integrated" situations happen. However, I don't think enough pressure is put on administrators, district technology leaders, superintendents, school boards, etc. to create environments where digital technology is accessible, set up and ready so that teachers can focus on their jobs--teaching curriculum. So many times what's implemented from above ends up being technology for technology sake that merely creates more work instead of being a creative and innovative solution.

Meg - An art teacher I

Meg - An art teacher I worked with in downeast Maine used a handheld video camera and a projector for the peer critique of student art that was, and always will be a part of her drawing class. Rather than having to squeeze together to see, the art work was HUGE and everyone could see. Also, when the image is that big, the deatils are more visible. I bet the same is true when it comes to alignment of math problems, etc. By using a simple goose neck lamp she had picked up at a yard sale, the lighting was great, and the image was clear. All of a sudden the level of engagement went way up. The video camera, connected via the yellow component (RCA) connector makes a great alternative to the ELMO, and at a significantly lower cost. If you need a document camera, so be it, but if you have some flexibility... Jim

I use a document camera

I use a document camera (such as an Elmo) to project student work. Instead of students writing math problems on the board, their papers are projected on the screen. I tell them to do their homework like everyone in the class will see it, because they will.
