"Our Ed Tech is Busted" Contest Winner
With more than 25,000 votes cast, I am proud to crown the 2010 "Our Ed Tech is Busted" champion (drum roll please):
"You ain’t squat unless you have an overhead made from a recycled fresnel lens, a desk lamp, and a camera tripod. Save me, I’m squat."
Warren High School
Mr. King and his homemade projector garnered 29% of the vote. Mr. King and his school have won the Optoma DV10 MovieTime DLP Projector With Built-In DVD Player donated by Meeting Tomorrow.
This Optoma Projector is an ultra portable projector with integral DVD player and sound system. It transforms any wall into the ultimate viewing experience with huge widescreen images dwarfing the largest 'Big Screen' TV's.
With no setup or cabling required, this projector is perfect sharing throughout the school, switching from individual classroom use to school-wide events. You can project movies with the built-in DVD player, play power point presentations or create slideshows with the included software.
We'd also like to give a big round of applause to all of our finalists. Coming in a close second and third were Ceiling Crash and Suicide Computer, with 23% and 20% respective.
"Ceiling fell! Servers crashed!!
Classes relocated: Keyboarding to library (on paper keyboards!),
Programming to wrestling room, etc. Disruptions September
through January: we're under mouse arrest!"
