Projector Tools

Projector Tools:

Are you looking for a way to get more use out of your projector? Then this tip is for you. I have seen a lot of apps popping up that allow you to use your projector as a simple interactive whiteboard without needing an actual smart/activboard. One simple one is just a website called classroomscreen.com. It doesn’t give you a pen that you can use to write on the screen, but it does provides you with a set of tools you can bring up on the screen, like a timer, a clock, a random name/number picker or a writing and drawing tools. You can draw on the screen using your mouse or trackpad or type notes using your keyboard. 

Just a sample of some of the tools in action.

There are other great apps that allow you and/or your students to collaborate on screen or virtually. One new one is from google called jamboard.google.com and one of our old favorites is padlet.com. Take a look and let us know what you think and maybe we will explore these further in our next technophiles meeting. – Mike
