  • I like your powerpoint for two reasons

    1-I needed a name for my technology consulting company here in South Carolina, and since I work with AV products I thought 'SchoolVision' was as good a name as any. And after 25 years of working wiht educational technology

    2-During World War II, my fathers division, the 43rd was briefly stationed in New Zealand. He loved the people there.

    And I guess another reason is I am a fan of Peter Jackson's films.

    I did get a unexpected email from a church there. I helped them to solve the problem they were having a with a projector.

    I hope your school year is going well .

    WE have some good websites here in the Charleston SC area that might be useful for 'virtual field trips

    One is www.patriotspoint.org. They keystone of that complex is the World War II Essex Class carrier, USS Yorktown CV10.

    2-I am fortunate to be friends with the family that owns www.booonehallplantation.com

    It is an authentic antebellum plantation. The house was rebuilt but the avenue of Oaks and slave cabins have attracted many movies and TV shows, such as North and South and the Notebook. There are many pictures and good info on their website.

    I hope your school year is going well
