Technology in the Classroom

Great news for teachers with iPhones and iPads! I saw this online and I just had to share. Check out this mini HDMI Pocket Projector from  Brookstone... I think that this is such a neat idea. Computers and even laptops are really becoming a thing of the past!

A thing of beauty absolutely, but how much is that bad boy?

Well Mellissa, at the time of this blog post it was $299. However, there are sale seasons to look forward to like Cyber Sales and discount promotions, etc. Best of all, technology stuff always cost less after a year or two. Think of phones and computers...

I think these might be the thing to wait a while for. I went looking for one a few months ago and was told by a computer tech guy that there were lots of issues to be resolved with them. They don't quite measure up to the hype. He encouraged me to buy a full size projector from HP, I didn't, or wait for them to work out the bugs on one of these little ones. I'm waiting because I want one too!!!

About Me

My Photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
