Classroom Management Plan
Dynamic Teacher Presentations

Teachers with one computer connected to a projection device can use the Internet to introduce or enrich a unit or even take their students on a virtual field trip. Similar to how a VCR can be used to show short video clips, the Internet can be used to show information, photos, live cam shots, and real time data.

EXAMPLE: Students track the voyage of a ship from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean through the Panama Canal. On the day that the ship passes through the Panama Canal, the teacher sets up a computer connected to a projection device so that all students can watch the live cam shots of the ship passing through the Canal. 

QUESTION: What section(s) of the project you have selected might be good for dynamic teacher presentations?
