I know things are tight all over, but this is getting ridiculous. I went to request a new bulb for my lcd projector and was told that we had none. A few days later it was announced to us that money is too tight and they are not going to order any bulbs and to make due with using the whiteboard. I understand that money is tight. I have an overhead to use transparencies and, of course, a whiteboard. Adapt and overcome I've always said. But it just kills me that we have thousands of dollars sunk into smartboards, elmos, digital cameras and it all sits idle because we can't afford the bulbs for the LCD's. And after all the clamoring and teacher standards about incorporating techonology, now they say you can teach just as good a lesson without it. Yet, even just a year ago, I would have been critized in an observation if I wasn't using it. Don't get me wrong. A good lesson doesn't have to have technology. Just bugs me that they harp & holler over teachers incorporating it and using it but turn around and say we don't need it now that we can't afford it. Anyone experiencing anything similar? Any advice?
