Cable is free but it depends if it is available in the community where the school is located. At our school, we had TV's setup in each grade level. I had the cable running via a DVD/VCR player and projected it on a large wall in one of our common areas.

Winooski used a very high tech approach. At the exact time of the inauguration, we had people turn on their televisions in their classrooms. We have a TV in every one. We also set up a gigantic television in the auditorium for anyone who wanted to bring large groups to watch it. :) Bryan Bryan Thompson Technology Coordinator Winooski School District Winooski, VT 05404 802-655-2555 On Fri, Jan 23, 2009 at 08:43, Raymond Ballou <[log in to unmask]> wrote: Dear List: I was out sick that day, but could track utilization from home. One issue we ran into was installation of updated FLASH. Not something I tend to unless it is needed. Had a number of users who could not view a stream due to outdated flash, nor install it on their own (permission reasons). Anyone run into problems, anyone sail through easily? Anyone install silverlight for the official PIC site? R.
