Subject: Re: information kiosk with video monitor

The setup at our middle school is very similar: what started as a desire for
a scrolling marquee turned into a large TV connected (S-Video & Audio) to a
computer in the office running Powerpoint. We have also played slideshows,
video, and streaming news events (inauguration) and it has been a great
addition, however there are times when we lack for content and we are
currently exploring ways to get students more involved: perhaps a rotating
responsibility among our Advisory Groups.
