SMART CONSOLE SETUP AND USAGE
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 26
Many of the classrooms at MCC have been converted to Smart Classrooms - however, some have not, and a Smart Console (consisting of a computer, data projector, VHS/DVD player, and speakers) has been placed in select rooms. This placement of Smart Consoles may change from semester to semester based on surveyed needs of the technology. If you know you will have a Smart Console in your classroom for the semester and want to learn how to operate it, attend this Brown Bag session. Facilitated by Paul Tracy, ETS Instructional Technologies.

SMART CLASSROOMS: HOW TO USE CLASSROOM TECHNOLOGY

As technological applications for instruction increase, so does the need for learning environments to include more advanced technology equipment.

Operate the controls that run the equipment in the smart classrooms
Access the M drive or use Zip disks or CDs in class
Switch between the PC and the VCR
Plug in your laptop to the system so it projects
Control the audio levels in the room
Use a closed captioned video in your class
Plug in and use your own camcorder or other device.
