4. My Analysis
Were the learning resource/materials are arranged properly according to their functions and
Yes, the learning resources/materials are neatly arranged and organized
according to their category, functions and characteristics. Newspapers and magazines
are put separately from books. Even books are further classified according to its
nature; whether Reserved, Filipiniana and so on.
Do the guidelines and procedures facilitate easy access to the materials by the teachers? Why?
Yes, the guidelines and procedures did facilitate an easy access to the
materials. It not only gives the proper conduct while in the library but also guides the
borrowers on how to handle books and other materials. It helps them where exactly the
book be found thus making the use of the library easy and convenient.
What are the strengths of these Learning Resource Center?
The strengths of this Learning Resource Center are the following: it
provides needed information to student and teachers alike. It is peaceful there thus
making learners focus on their study. It has also a computer set which allows the
students to browse on the internet in finding relevant information in their research.
5. What are its weaknesses?
Among its weaknesses are the following: Books are limited in number.
Electronic devices such as computer are very few. And also the proper entrance and
exit are not strictly implemented by the custodians.
What suggestions can you make?
To meet the needs of the students and also to lessen the negative side of
learning resource center, I would suggest that it would be better to deal more books
which are relatively cheap and useful tostudents. Maybe, in time,there will be a larger
allocation to the library. This could help improve its facilities.
6. My Reflections
1. Which of the materials in the learning resource center caught your interest the most?
Among many materials in the Learning Resource Center, I was interested in
using Encyclopedias. Not just that, I am interested in using the computer in the library
and browse the internet for fundamental information. This caught my interest the most
because these are new and it gives me convenience in looking for information.
2. Which gadgets/materials are you already confident to use/operate?
Among the materials that I’m already confident to use/operate are books and
magazines. They are almost everywhere in our library. Using them is relatively easy
that’s why I’m very confident to use it.
3. Which ones do you feel you need to learn more about?
For me, I think, I should study more on how to use the computer set in our
library and the OPAC section. These are new to our library but they are very important
to my studies. Therefore, I need to learn more about them.

Multimedia Projectors: A Key Component in the Classroom of the Future
Classrooms have changed dramatically over the last decade with the advent of new
technologies and equipment developed to make teaching and learning more diversified and interactive.
Today, more teachers than ever are using multimedia projectors in the classroom. Students no longer
have to crowd around a computer monitor to view presentations, Web sites or training programs.
Multimedia projectors are becoming the centerpiece of classroom technology hubs that directly engage
students and add impact to each lesson.
Identifying Classroom Needs
The education market's growing interest in multimedia projectors has led to increased research
and development efforts from product manufacturers. In the past, educators had to adapt projectors that
were intended for business use. When educators wanted a portable projector, they often settled for
reduced image quality, fewer connection options and a machine that could get very hot if run over long
periods. However, when educators wanted a projector to perform at a high level for many hours, and
could accommodate multiple connections, they likely settled for a large machine stationed in a
multimedia center or other shared room where they had to relocate their class for that lesson - making
it impractical for daily use. In both cases, these projectors were often difficult to operate, requiring
assistance from an audiovisual specialist. The good news is that more products are being introduced to
meet specific classroom needs.
To get a better understanding of exactly what teachers, media and AV specialists are looking
for, Philips recently worked with Quality Education Data Inc. (QED) to survey 500 educators and
media specialists in U.S. public schools to learn more about technology and equipment trends in K-12
classrooms. Most significantly, the study uncovered how highly educators value multimedia projectors
8. as essential classroom tools. In fact, AV specialists who participated predict a projector in every
classroom within the next five years.
Important Features and Classroom Applications
Educators identified the following key features as what they liked best when purchasing a
projector, in order of those most important to them: picture performance, resolution, long lamp life,
product portability, brightness, PC connections and quiet operation. Other attributes considered critical
included overall projector performance, ease of use, purchase price and cost of operation. In short, the
study showed schools need affordable, high-performing, highly versatile and easy to use projectors.
When inquiring about what applications multimedia projectors are being used for (see chart
below), 91 percent of the educators surveyed who are currently using a multimedia projector indicated
their most common use is for multimedia presentations. Educators commented that disseminating
information to students in more than one form -whether through the combined use of text, audio,
graphics or full-motion video - increases the student's chance of grasping and learning the lesson.
Approximately 89percent said they used the units for projecting computer screen images of the Internet
or other PC applications while teaching, and 45 percent said they used them to display movies in the
Teacher, Student Benefits
When asked how multimedia projectors affected the teaching and learning experience, several
areas of influence were identified, including visual aid, greater flexibility for alternative teaching
methods, enhanced teacher demonstrations, heightened student awareness and customized curriculum
Visual aid. Multimedia projectors allow teachers to provide diverse content to all students in the
classroom at once, allowing students to have a visual and colorful learning experience during a given
lesson. These projectors are perfect for this generation's visually oriented youth because they help make
abstract concepts easier to understand.
Alternative way of teaching. By not forcing a teacher to rely solely on books, a multimedia projector
makes more educational information available to students. It changes conventional habits and rituals in
9. the classroom. In fact, some survey participants believe a multimedia projector could soon replace the
chalkboard and overhead projector.
Makes teaching easier and better. Instead of having students crowd around a PC, the entire class can
view one big screen without difficulty. The multimedia projector has made the teaching of Internet-
related subjects and the demonstration of new software applications much easier - heightening stu-
dents' awareness and expectations, while captivating their attention and increasing their motivation.
The projectors also accommodate the electronic submission and viewing of student work.
Customized curriculum applications. Projectors are being used for a variety of curriculum-specific
applications. In language arts, a teacher linked up to an author's Web site to provide greater insight and
impact to a reading assignment. A science teacher created a PowerPoint presentation to demonstrate a
frog dissection. In social studies, a teacher developed a tornado presentation for increased audio and
visual impact. For math classes, projectors have been used to teach students how to work with
spreadsheets, calculate formulas, and utilize charts and graphs. Athletic departments show practice and
game films, as well as illustrate plays, with the ability to pause, reverse and update them spontaneously.
Summary of Findings
With an average of 30 classrooms per school, 68 percent of respondents indicated they are currently
using multimedia projectors. Among these users, more than 80 percent are using portable units in the
classroom to display multimedia presentations and project images from the computer screen for
teaching. Teachers believe the minimum number of projectors each school should have is 16, even
though most schools average less than four. Despite keen interest in multimedia projectors, more than
90 percent of those surveyed have traditional technologies available to them (see chart below),
including: TVs (97 percent), VCRs (96.2 percent), PC networks (86.4 percent), and laptop or desktop
computers (82 percent). In addition, fewer than 25 percent of those surveyed have access to interactive
whiteboards and DVD players, which are perfect complements to multimedia projectors.
