Mitsubishi Interactive Projectors Stand Out in the Classroom

In an article that looks at short-throw and interactive projectors for the classroom, AVNetwork included a pair of Mitsubishi projectors that support interactive and dual-pen functionality that enables two pens to be used at the same time on the same surface. Mitsubishi’s wide-screen format WD385U-EST and XGAresolution XD365U-EST 3D-ready projectors empower students and teachers to make annotations on almost any solid surface. A specially crafted lens in each can project a 70-inch (diagonal) image from less than 23 inches away.

AVI-SPL has relied on Mitsubishi projectors for its integrations in corporate and education environments. Talk to one of our experts about how interactive projectors can benefit your classroom: call us at 866-559-8197 or email sales@avispl.com. We look forward to hearing from you.

Classroom Management Online and in Real Time

Have you heard of ClassDojo.com?  It may be one of the best kept secrets out there – but no longer!  As the school year begins and we start wondering what our classes are going to be like, we now have an ally in the battle for classroom management! We all know that behavior management is crucial to success. Without it, your class never seems to get off of the ground, and the environment can easily go from bad to worse.  

ClassDojo helps you to give positive reinforcement to students, as well as warnings to improve behaviors. These are all viewed by the class using your projector, and are especially effective when used with a SMART Board. Students hear a pleasant sound for positive behavior, and a negative sound for warnings. All data is tracked and reports can be downloaded or set to email directly to parents. How about that! You can also control ClassDojo from anywhere in the room using the app for your smart phone!  ClassDojo is a free online program to make your life as a teacher a little more manageable. Create the expectation for good behavior the first day of school using ClassDojo!
