We have a lot of smartboards in our school. Due to a lack of space, teachers are in different rooms almost every period. This means, in a 9 period day, teachers are plugging in and unplugging our VGA cables into their laptops. We also have a night school, so let us add a few more. 20 times a day, our VGA cables are being plugged in and out, that is 100 times a week, and 400 times a month - I suppose this is inevitable - look on the bottom row.
I suppose this sort of thing would be prevented by:
1. Wirelessly connecting to the LCD projectors
2. Setup podiums so everything is preconnected.
As it stands, this little bent pin cost a Spanish teachers 20 minutes of class time. No fun.
