Defnitely, I second the kudos for the digital projector. It has truly
elevated my students to a new level of art appreciation. After two
years time, I have a notebook FILLED with digital curriculum guides,
Word tables filled with images of the first picture from each poweroint.
I can see at a glance pictorially what my entire curriculum is. My
lessons are now filled with art appreciation support. And I love the
way you can use a pointer on the big screen to discuss something...all
children are seeing the same image in the same way, not upside down or
too far away. Attention from my children has improved. Animation is
fun at times, too. If anyone wants to hear my technique for creating MS
WORD tables and sliding PowerPoint images into each cell of the table,
ask me, and I will tell you again how I do it. It sure makes for an
impressive notebook of visuals so that you can see your entire digital
curriculum at a glance visually instead of just by title.
