The Simplified Teaching Tech Set-up
Being well prepared when visiting clients is key to being professional. Most teachers I know still rely on the reams of photocopies which they print at home and lug around all day. I prefer to avoid this as much as possible by utilizing the multimedia which is found in most office conference rooms – projectors, tvs, smartboards, etc. This lightens my load considerably, but still requires some basic hardware tools to access the multimedia at hand.
Here I provide some descriptions, with links, to what I carry in my briefcase:
Wifi Router (with data plan): I use a Simyo data plan which comes with the router included. A two-year contract, at €15/month, allows me 3GB of LTE data usage. I would rarely exceed this data limit, even streaming videos in classrooms nearly every working day. There are options to extend a single month’s limit if usage is exceeded. If you are interested, please use this reference code so I can get some free credit!
