This is the procedure for Sharp projector issues:
1. The school end user must contact the Duval Maintenance team at 904-858-6325,
so that a work ordercan be created.
2. Once the work order has been created, the Duval Maintenance team
will go to the school site and address the issue.
3. What happens if the lamp is blown under the 3000 hours? Duval Maintenance will decide either of the following:
a. Replace the bulb.
b. Take the projector if it is determined that it is a more serious issue than just the lamp.
4. The Duval County Maintenance team will work with Sharp to get any warranty items replaced, so that the teachers can get up and running.

Helpful Tips for Easiteach
How to block auto-updates in Easiteach One nice feature in ETNG is the auto-update function that allows users to download the latest versions of the program. However, some schools don’t like this feature because it can cause a strain on a school’s Internet connection if many teachers all update at the same time. Also, some schools discourage teachers from performing these kinds of updates. Here is a summary of how to block these updates: 1. Go to C:\Program Files\RM\Easiteach Next Generation 2. Open the file: 'LightboxEducation.Easiteach.Shell.exe.config' and change the value of 'EnableUpdateCheck' to 'false'
Easiteach e-Course launched on Easiteach.com A free, six-part e-Course for Easiteach Next Generation is now available for customers on Easiteach.com. The course is designed to give customers helpful activity ideas and tips for making the most of the many tools in ETNG. After a user registers for the course they receive an email once every 5 days for 30 days. Each email introduces the customers to different classroom-ready ideas and provides them with step-by-step instructions for activities such as creating a weather map and collecting statistical data and capturing it in a graphic organizer.

"The reading basal is available on-line so I model my lessons by "writing" in the text. For example, I modeled monitor and clarifying by projecting the basal and then using the pen on the board itself to write my notes in the margin."
(Christine Snyder)

"My students use the board to type in and edit the class newsletter. Using glass mode on the Easiteach program, I post the keyboard and that is how they type their pages." (Christine Snyder)
