Scenario:
A student sets down at the desk.  Slides the note book sideways and flips up the cover to function as a screen.  Sets the phone down and opens it up.
The image is projected on the screen, the keyboard is projected on the desk.
At the end of class, the student puts the phone back in the pocket and moves on to the next class.

If this takes place, students bring the technology with them.  No need for computer labs, infrastructure, data storage, or a building tech. Wink

How:

Camera with a built in projector for viewing a larger screen:

Light emitted keyboard:

We certainly teach in exciting Tech-know-Times.  Shocked

It would be interesting to hear of peoples experiences of using "projected" keyboards.
I wonder about their lack of tactile feedback, potential for rsi etc.

........I have frequently projected a couple of my phones across the room....
(especially those running WinMob that have decided to reboot just as I needed to make a call!)

lol!

I once projected a truculent EDA across the room (I have witnesses!) due to its resistance in connecting to the Internet as a consequence of the dreaded E2C software. After ricocheting from a wall it didn't fix the software but it made me feel a bit better and simultaneously tested the protective shell of the device!
