I would absolutely love to have a projector in the room at meetings.  It
makes us less dependent
on the network when everyone is pulling up the same document on separate
screens.  It might
even be used live to capture important parts of a discussion for those who
enter in the middle.
The time I've most wished we had a projector is when subgroups are reading
off the list of papers
for the next day.  Having one person recording the list and displaying it
on a screen would be
especially helpful.  Placing the list online for those not in the room at
the time would also be helpful.

I have a small, portable project that I brought to the February meeting and
would be glad to
continue bringing, but I chose it for size and cost.  I'm sure there are
much better projectors
if any are available for our use.

In all of these discussions, I think it's important to account for and
accommodate learning
differences.  Receiving an ADHD diagnosis for the first time at age 47 was
a transformative
experience for me in terms of finally understanding why I process
information so differently
from neurotypical learners.  I like that the emails I've seen in this
discussion are acknowledging
that the use of one tool doesn't have to preclude the use of others.
People process information
in a variety of ways and some ways that are perfectly fine for one subset
of people will be wholly
ineffective for another subset.  The group as a whole will benefit if
everyone is maximally engaged
by being able to use the medium or tool that each person finds most
