Winners of High-Tech Projectors Prepare to Wow Students: Our Contest Victors Lay out Their Plans for Using the Technology in the Classroom

Article excerpt

IN THE NOVEMBER edition of In Brief, T.H.E. Journal announced it would award Canon (www.canonprojectors.com) REALiS X600 multimedia projectors to three schools with "compelling study challenges" that were intent on "innovative use of the projection technology." Our three winners have been selected. Here they are, along with their plans for making the most of their new projectors.

* Matt Sly, Urbana High School (IL). Sly, a physics teacher, says his school has an "extremely limited" technology budget, and the new Canon projector will replace a very dated projector that has to serve a wide variety of classes. Sly looks forward to introducing the REALiS X600 to his science students. "I have a number of ideas I will use it for in my department," he says, "including examining models and simulations that most projectors do not provide enough resolution to make out images clearly. Another benefit for the physics classes would be taking advantage of the projector to study stop-frame images of motion with the benefit of a high-quality projected image."

* Diane Knowles, Eastside Elementary School (TN). Knowles, who teaches third grade at the preK-8 Eastside Elementary School, wants to use her new projector to take her students on virtual field trips, to project stories from an online subscription service so they can read aloud in class, and to show otherwise minuscule images, online movies, and presentations--and "not just to those who can crowd around the computer," she adds. …
