This could be a place to talk about the more specialized (and rare) technology ALTs might find available to them.

Is this part distinctly different from Part 3? I feel they could be combined

I think we can make a distinction between low and high tech if we need to. (Or just not use the words low and high. Maybe use common and specialized or something)

Like a projector and a computer should be fairly common. Scanners and printers in the teacher's room too. Powerpoint should be available to most people. There is a lot you can do with just powerpoint (if you learn how to control it) and a lot of shared resources on the internet to help you learn.

More specialized tech would be electric whiteboards, special software, computer labs, audio and video recording equipment, etc...

I think we can try to inspire or encourage those that do have specialized technology available to them. For example, I figured out I could change the language of my electric whiteboard software into English and my productivity shot up. Mentioning little things like that might get people more excited to experiment.

sorry JAmes I think we have already decided these things. For now on I think you should focus on adding to the PP presentation on google drive. Focus on designing a concrete example where you successfully used tech please. The body of the presentation has already been designed and I do not wish to spend time AGAIN on it. Sorry I am honestly too busy
