Top 5 Projectors for the Classroom

Technology can play an important role in learning and education. Along with the classroom, projectors can be used for school assemblies, social clubs and sports training.

 

Projectors are especially important when it comes to higher education and are an excellent resource for teachers looking for ways to get students more involved in learning.

 

In the classroom, teachers can use projectors to:

  • Present lessons or lectures using support materials from your computer.
  • Share pictures or videos.
  • Display websites so that the entire class can see.
  • Show movies that are on DVD.
  • Read books.
  • Video chat.
  • Show test questions from the computer screen.

 

 

Some features to look for in a classroom projector include:

 

A short throw lens – Why is this important? In classroom set ups, the projector screen is often far up near the front. A short throw lens will show images and pictures for both a large and clearer perspective.

 

Mountable – If you are not sharing your projector or using it in other classrooms, it can be convenient to mount the projector on the ceiling

 

LCD Technology – Some will recommend DLP technology, however LCD is better for the variety of functions the projector will serve in the classroom.

 

Easy to set up and use.

 

HD capabilities.

 

HDMI connectivity – for interaction with DVD players and computers.

When Is It Time to Replace Your Projector Lamp?

Most projector lamps will last an average of 2,000 hours. If you don’t have a menu that tells you how many hours your lamp has been used, you likely will have no idea of how much life is left on your lamp? Obviously you’ll need to replace your projector lamp when it stops working. But the reality is, your lamp will show signs of aging well before it goes dead.

Power point and other computer presentations are sure to impress when done correctly. This is especially true when they are presented on a large projector screen. However, to ensure your presentation is not a flop, consider the following:

 

  • Connect the computer and projector prior to the presentation to ensure you know how to set it up correctly.

 

  • Use the projector’s remote control if you have one as it will help things go more smoothly.

 

  • Organize your materials including handouts if you have any prior to the session.

 

  • Enhance your presentation with audio.

 

  • Consider adding video to your presentation.
