Day 20 : TouchJet!

We are beta testers for new technology from TouchJet... the Pond projector.
This little dude is tiny, mobile, interactive, and already hugely popular with 7th graders.

More to come, but here are just a few (very fuzzy) glimpses of us utilizing the projector to introduce our new novel I, Juan de Pareja by Elizabeth Borton de TreviƱo. We looked at "Last Meninas" from Diego Velazquez, examined details and artistic style, and made some predictions about the book before we started.

Students' favorite highlights:
The giant keyboard
Stylus = magic
Feeling large and in charge when sharing their ideas... even a two-sentence statement is BIG because of the epic screen behind them and the ability to manipulate it like a regular Android device!

We have only used the touchJet for mostly its traditional projector features, but we'll be diving into some of its more tantalizing aspects soon enough. Stay posted!
