Teaching NCC SSII M122 - Day 01: Setting Up Shop!
Teaching NCC SSII M122:
Day 01 - Setting Up Shop!
OK, I'm teaching M122 Harvard Calculus I this Summer Session II and I got the huge multimedia room with balcony seating and 50" HD TVs! So, I brought in my DRIOD Tablet and connected it to the multimedia center PC over WiFi with SplashTop. Now I can drive the whole multimedia experience wirelessly from my tablet. I suppose this is a continuation of last Summer's post about M111! All I need to do is add a stylus, a pen app such as Xournal and a Graphing Calculator emulator like Virtual TI!
What follows is a picture gallery of the new room. Of course, this is different from my regular room at the High School pictured above in my banner.
This is my tablet mirroring my PC Desktop using the SplashTop app.
Here's the multimedia center PC Desktop running Splashtop, Xournal (pen app) and VTI (emulator). Note the control panel to the right that turns on the PC Projector, HD TVs and sound.
Here's my view from the bottom, front of the room to the balcony seats. I have over 70 seats all together!
Here's the view from my PC.
This is the view of the main 8' PC Projector Screen from the front row.
This is a view as you enter from the right-hand front door. These doors have a magnetic key lock system. If I lock or unlock one door, all 4 doors follow suit!
This view is from the right-hand rear door.
Here's a view from the balcony!
This view is from the left-hand rear door.
Last, but not least, here's a close-up of one of the 50" HD TVs!
