What do I do if…? I have a technology problem! I need software installed! My computer is really slow! My printer isn’t working! I don’t know where these cables go!

How do I project from my computer? Make sure the projector and the laptop are both on. Press the FN button and the F8 or F4 button at the same time. This should toggle the image of your computer through the projector. Sometimes you need to do this more than once. Still not working? Make sure the white cover on top of the projector is all the way open or the projector will not work. Press “Source search” on the projector to find the source for the laptop. If the camera is also on at the same time, try pressing the “PC” button on the camera to switch to the computer.
Other Nuts and Bolts of the Projector What if the projector only shows a black screen? 1.Make sure the projector is ON. 2.Make sure the white cover on top of the projector is slid all the way open, or it won’t work. 3. Try pressing “source search” on the projector to search for the device that is on. How do I turn off the projector? 1. Press the power button twice.
Good morning! Write objectives Give directions Warm-up Review of material from previous class
Use PowerPoint for Instruction As students enter the room, they're probably wondering, "What are we going to do today?“ Solution = make one PowerPoint. Each day, change your objectives or warm-up and click "Save As" and rename it with that date. The next day, open the show, edit the information, and click "Save As" with the new date. By the end of the year you'll have 180 PowerPoint shows that you can always use again in the future. This will save a lot of elbow grease you would have spent erasing the board!

How do I project from my document camera? Make sure the projector AND the document camera is on. Press the “camera” button on the document camera. STILL NOT WORKING?

Other Nuts and Bolts of the Document Camera What if the image is out of focus? Try moving the focus wheel on the camera head. What if the image is too dark when I display the camera mode? Try turning on the light on the camera head. How do I turn off the camera? Press the power button on the side of the camera base.
Camera Buttons “PC” button: press this to toggle to project the computer on the screen. “Camera” button: press this to toggle to project the document camera on the screen. “Zoom in/Zoom Out”: use these buttons to zoom in or out while using the camera. This is better to use than bending the neck of the camera down low to an object you’d like to show. “Freeze”: freezes the image you are projecting. To turn off this feature, press “freeze” again. “Cap/Del”: stands for “capture/delete”. Press this button while you are projecting the camera to take a picture of the image. To delete a picture you took, play the picture again and press the “Cap/del” button. On the message that says “Delete? Yes/No”, use the arrow to move to the word “delete” and click the right arrow to confirm the delete. “Playback”: Press this button to playback the pictures you took using the “Cap/del” button. Use the arrows on the camera to go back and forth between the pictures.
