Designing the Electronic Classroom.
Adams, Laural L.
In an increasingly technological environment, traditional teaching presentation methods such as the podium, overhead, and transparencies are no longer sufficient. This document serves as a guide to designing and planning an electronic classroom for "bidirectional" communication between teacher and student. Topics include: (1) determining whether to construct a new facility or renovate an existing one; (2) building codes and standards; (3) outfitting the lab, including selecting furniture, arranging desks, chairs, white boards and screens, lighting, walls, acoustics, environmental controls, and accessories; (4) electronic equipment, including selection of projection equipment with considerations about motion video, portability, image quality, and cost, rear versus front projection, integrated control systems, monitors, and wiring; (5) software; (6) security; (7) estimating costs; and (8) managing the classroom.
