For some bricklayers, it’s the regular maintanance that goes-awry. For some carpenters it’s the size that’s not quite right. For some engineers, the fine detail just isn’t clear enough. So how do you solve the problems experienced by many teachers, assessors and lecturers of practical type subjects?
There are many possible solutions, all worth considering. But keep in mind that the one that suits you may not be presented here, or it may be a combination of many of the ideas!
- For extra detail or size, try a high output projector such as 2000 lumens or more.
- Project onto any white painted wall, giving extra flexibility in the workroom.
- Try Dulux Light & Space Absolute White Rich Matt with Lumitec; See HERE for full discussion forum
- Use wireless gyromouse/keyboard to allow you to walk around the learning space, and also to give students some of the interactivity.
- Try the “Podium” available from ‘Smart’ – a touch screen with extra buttons, with this the projection size can be anything.
- Consider a digitising tablets, again Smart (other brands are available!) offer the Bamboo Touch which connects via Bluetooth, but the ‘wireless’ connectivity allows you to pass it around the room for student input.
Have you used a great peice of equipment for a ‘practical’ type course such as engineering, science, carpentry or bricklaying? Please share your experiences and ideas!
