In my district last year, I had a portable projector that I could hook up anywhere I wanted in the room, granted there was a plug. I also had an interactive whiteboard. Now that I ever used it interactively. I had a Ladibug and while I didn't like the neck of it, I did like that I could use my document camera with no laptop. I could actually have subs do real work under the doc camera because it didn't require a computer. Fast forward a year. In my new district, my projector is mounted to the ceiling and I have one hookup. Some plugs on the back wall that can access my projector. I also have to have my document camera plugged into my laptop which I really do hate because often I'll use Google in small group and if I have something projected I can't move my laptop. My Aver document camera is just...no. It has to be plugged into my laptop to access the Sphere software. Questions like this were never a thought in an interview. I saw the mounted projected but didn't think anything of it. If I'd know I'd have seriously given it more thought because maybe I was spoiled but this must be plugged into the laptop to work and me held hostage at the back of the room while the projector only faces one direction is a trip. What is your projector/laptop/document camera set up like? What products? Is this the typical way of mounted projectors so now I know if I do change schools or whatever, I'm saying no to mounted projected schools/districts because it just seems so...not modern.
