Before I became a stay-at-home mom, I worked in the county schools as part of an amazing before and after school program. My "kids" were elementary school students, ranging in age from 5-12. The program I was involved in had weekly, themed lesson plans, and we tried to make learning new things as hands-on and fun as possible for the participants.
We did plenty of science experiments, crafts, and even outdoor nature walks and scavenger hunts, all with education in mind. One thing we were lacking? Overhead projectors or monitors to help supplement the material we were focusing on. You see, this program took place in the school's gymnasium, and access to televisions, projectors, and computers was incredibly limited, to say the least. While we made do with what we had, I always felt like something was lacking. A dry-erase board just doesn't engage kids the way a power-point presentation of video can.
I recently discovered a great new product made by the experts at Lenovo that could have made supplementing our lesson plans so much easier and more convenient. At under two pounds and less than an inch thick, the 14-inch Lenovo ThinkVision LT1421 mobile monitor makes the perfect traveling companion for traveling professionals, like auditors or consultants. While this is great for business professionals, it would also be wonderful in a classroom setting!
The mobile monitor works great for ad hoc meetings in places like hotel lobbies, cafes, or even school gymnasiums, that lack access to a projector and even for extra screen space for work that requires multitasking on the go. To use, simply plug the monitor into a laptop via USB and prop it up with its photo frame stand. Tilt the display to the desired angle and choose from 16 brightness levels to get presentations looking their best. Designed to match with the ThinkPad family of laptops, the mobile monitor offers convenience, simplicity and elegance and comes with a standard carrying case. Tested to the same rigorous standards as ThinkPad laptops to ensure the highest levels of reliability and dependability, LT1421 is durable for travel convenience.
While this product would be fantastic for on the fly business meetings, I think it also would have been a lifesaver in the after-school program I was involved in. Using this, we would have been able to show videos, graphs, and slideshows which would have made the lessons we taught much more interactive and engaging for the students.
The Lenovo ThinkVision LT1421 would also be wonderful for Moms' Groups, PTA meetings, and any other gathering that may require presentations. I think this looks like an amazing product to have on hand, and I hope to purchase one soon. This would make early-learning more convenient for my own kids, even here at home!
