Projector Central article: How a Teacher Learned to Get Along with her Promethean Board

By on October 8, 2009

I recently reviewed the Promethean Board, and more specifically its projector, for Projector Central.  You can read the article here.

I had a great time writing this article.  I was really out of my comfort zone reviewing the technology with so little knowledge of what makes a projector or a Promethean Interactive Whiteboard tick.  I mean, I can talk a fair game about integrating technology into the curriculum and all, but that’s a far cry from writing a technical review of a piece of equipment.

But I jumped in, and in so doing, learned how to troubleshoot this educational tool in a way that I never dreamt in a million years I would be able to do.

I’ve also learned that Projector Central is a great resource.  After I turned in my rough draft of my article, I got advice from about how to solve my board problems. Their goal for me was not to submit an article that simply bitched about a problem, but rather to submit one that solved those problems.  So they did what they could to advise me in how to solve what was troubling me.  And in so doing, I grew as a teacher.

Projector Central is kinda like therapists for you and your equipment.  They’ll moderate and follow-up, making sure you’re all still getting along.  I’ll definitely be checking into their site as a reader, seeking more answers for my educational technology questions.
