the little things

I know that it may not seem like that big of a deal, but after coming from Athens Clarke County schools, which are technology-driven, to a small mission school, a projector is a big deal. Last year I did not have wireless internet in my classroom until November. The only white boards we used were personal sized at the back table. There was no overhead projector, no SmartBoard or ELMO document reader. Just the chalkboards and the kids crowded around my laptop when we wanted to watch a video. But this, my friends, is a huge leap. A projector. That lives in my room. Words cannot describe my happiness. Already we have gotten a big kick out of using the projector this week; we've watched BrainPOP! videos, youtube clips, and seen Power Point presentations. This is the start of a very good relationship.
