I have a smart board type thing. The name (smart board, mimeo, promethian...) does not matter.
What does matter is last week it died. IT cleaned the filter, replaced the bulb and it still does not work.
The people before me put the thing into the dry wipe board. Why the blank wall on the side is beyond me. So now I have no way to write demonstrations to my students. Plan B is I taped bulletin board paper to the wall and used that to write on.
Thursday a bank of lights in my room dies, along with the lights in office, supply room and alcove between my classroom and another. It had a back up projector on the blank wall so it died to. Friday by fourth period they managed to fix it.
But this week I talked to my husband. There is a now a shower wall board, dry wipe board on the blank wall. I dare anybody in authority to complain. "look the maintaince people are busy with care of the bathrooms, fixing the roof in the art room and other stuff. I've been asking for a dry wipe there for a year. Be grateful my husband does not bill you for time and materials."
My eighth period students were impressed by my fixing of the problem and offered to help with the installation.
