recent article on set-top boxes for presentations
I recently wrote an article that I thought might be interesting to other educators.
The popularity of wide-screen TVs has led to many new devices that allow us to send out images and video wirelessly or over wired ethernet to TVs or projectors. I was intrigued by what I saw from Western Digital at PhotoPlus Expo in NYC, and wrote about wny photographers might consider a Media Player. I think that Media Players may serve a role at schools, an art show or at a gallery. To me, they are like $99 hi-def slide projectors/video players. It can be confusing to sort through all the features, and WD is just one manufacturer.
I can see a lesson in which students are each given a USB thumb drive to fill with jpgs of their digital art, photos or scans of their drawings/art projects, and one by one they insert the thumb drive, navigate to their images and show their work.
Below is a link to the article:
I welcome comments either here or on the article page.
