Re: question


I have been using an I Pad and Logitec pen during the remote learning and with the right apps (I use Explain Everything) and set up it can be very useful.  It would be something the our professors could use if they are doing remote presentations  - it easy to present through zoom on from the IPad.  And it can be used in the classroom.  Again though- it does require the right apps and set up (especially in the classroom).

Dear Friends,

I hope that everybody is enjoying beautiful weather. I am writing to ask you about your opinion in the following matter.


We are running this program since 2004. I just looked at our first minutes and I see Michael Hirsh and Mike Wadness among the founding fathers of the program! Thank you for your commitment! Anyway, some of you remember that in the early days we used to provide overhead projectors to schools as an aid for Theorynet presentations. We still have a similar budget which includes not only demonstration equipment but also visual aid equipment (in addition to stipends which are now $150/meeting). Of course, overhead projectors are obsolete now because they are standard part of school rooms, but with COVID-19 pandemic, many of you have faced the challenge of teaching online and hosted virtual Theorynet visits. I would like to know if the state is providing adequate support like good laptops for virtual classes and extracurricular use. It looks like online will remain with us for a long time. I am thinking about substituting old overhead projectors by some basic laptops to aid in virtual presentations. Do you think it is a good idea?

Best regards,
