Classroom Technology

Prior to Tuck, I never put much thought into what I should expect in terms of technology in the classroom.  For me, technology is important because I feel it’s a good way for professors to give a subject more life.  For example, professors can play videos or display slides/pictures in a rich format and from every angle, enhancing the learning experience.  I took pictures of a classroom, a larger classroom, to point out some of the features.  
The screens for slides were not dropped at this time but as you can see the width of the screen (as measured on the left side) is large enough to see from the back of the room.   

The width is in direct proportion to the height and high enough to see over the tall students.  For me, tall is anything above 5'7".  By my measurements, I guess I'll consider myself tall.


The arrows in the middle point out both a state of the art projector and a state of the art camera.  To the right, you can see the different angles to the center of where a slide would be shown. A perfect design in my mind.  

Finally, I have measured half the distance of the TV monitor to give it more perspective.   This is a big screen and great for displaying necessary videos during class.   Unfortunately, no Super Bowl games in here.


After I finished writing this post I noticed something peculiar at the end, something that the scientific community may find interesting.  When I put all the measurements together a message appeared (see below).  I think this is Tuck's equivalent of the Golden Ratio.  How do I know?  Because I've seen it on other places as well (I'll show these at a later time)
