Emerging technologies allow users to connect to classroom projection systems from mobile devices, including tablets and some smartphones. Such tools can change the character of interaction in the classroom by allowing multiple users to easily access the projector and by enabling projection of mobile-device features such as free-hand drawing. Freeing an instructor or student presenters from a lectern or other fixed projection station can increase engagement and collaboration in an educational setting.
The "7 Things You Should Know About..." series from the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) provides concise information on emerging learning technologies. Each brief focuses on a single technology and describes what it is, where it is going, and why it matters to teaching and learning. Use these briefs for a no-jargon, quick overview of a topic and share them with time-pressed colleagues.
