hi, I am a total novice with regards to using a projector for teaching.
Some background: I started to teach my students (aged 8 to 10) about 9 months ago, and I have been doing "okay" with a projector which I purchased from 3-M which is a mobile projector (it can run off the batteries). We do NOT have WiFi, and the projector has been "okay" for my students in that:
I have been able to copy-paste from Accorandance in Keynote, and usually re-size the verses so that they can read off the projector. So far, so good.
Problem 1: our church has had recent guest speakers, and my projector (which is THE projector) does not project well for larger audiences (such as mentioned in this forum).
Problem 2: I was really inspired by Dr. Jay's most current podcast, and my sense is that: I have not been using Accordance to its fullest use. When I try to "copy-paste" MAPS from Accordance to Keynote: I can not get such fantastic graphics. I must confess that I have used Bibleworks for Macs to get SOME of my pictures. NOT MANY -- but some of my maps. SORRY! Please don't get mad -- I just want some help so that: in 2013: my presentations are comparable to Dr. Jay's presentation.
My question: is the problem that my projector can not get "better resolution"? I.e, I somehow need a "better" projector? NOTE: If someone has a good resource (in terms of a check-list) for the purchase of projectors for a small church -- I would be very appreciative.
Or, is the problem with my use of Accordance?
I have enclosed my file called, MAPS. You will see that some of my MAPS are "bigger font" than others. The "bigger font" maps are from Bibleworks for MAC -- but the "smaller font MAPS" are from Accordance.
I saw that Dr. Jay was able to "resize" things. I am terribly sorry, and if this is really basic, let me know. How did Dr. Jay re-size HIS maps? When I do a copy-paste, I can't get my maps to resize, so the said maps do NOT project with decent resolution.
Thank you in advance
Finally, I have tried to attach my files from Keynote and PDF -- and files are WELL UNDER 15 MB. Do I need to convert to Powerpoint for MAC? I feel badly that I can not even attach my files to the forum. Sorry
