Get Going with a Smartboard
Focusing Questions How can I set up my projector and interactive whiteboard?
Framing Our Work Today we will learn how to set up our projectors and interactive whiteboards by looking at their connections and the ports they are associated with.
Teaching Power Cable This provides power for our projector. This is a cable that will be used every time you use your projector.
RGB Cable Sometimes referred to as a VGA cable. It has two large blue ports on either end. This is another cable that will be used all the time. Connects from the computer to the projector. Enables the projector to project the image on your computer. If you have no image being projected this is the first cable to check. Teaching
USB Cable This cable connects your computer to the Interactive whiteboard. Your whiteboard is a USB device. It gets its power from your computer. Teaching
