Preparations for Installation of Interactive Projector

Goal

Facilitate an efficient and consistent standard installation for classroom interactive projectors and/or SMARTBoards and projectors.

Assumptions

If a classroom has:

1. An existing SMARTBoard with a projector installed on a ceiling or wall mounted

  • There will be no change.

2. An existing SMARTBoard with a projector on a cart

  • The projector will be removed and replaced with a wall mounted projector.

3. A whiteboard(s) with a projector on a cart

  • A wall-mounted interactive projector will be installed.

4. Chalkboard or something similar

  • One or two whiteboards and a wall-mounted interactive projector will be installed.

Installation Standard

Existing Two Whiteboards (6’ or larger)

Align the projector on the inside edge of the board farthest from the main classroom door. Ensure the installation of the whiteboard will accommodate an ultra-short throw projector

Existing SMARTBoard

Ensure the board is at the proper height for the grade level being taught and mount the projector.

Single Whiteboard

If appropriate, install a second whiteboard. If not adding a second whiteboard, align the projector with the edge of the board furthest from door.

No Whiteboard

Make a decision on whether to install one or two whiteboards
