Techy Tuesday: Blog Button & Luna in the Spotlight

Techy-Tuesday is HERE at last!!

Stay tuned for some cool news about the Luna Interactive Projector & a giveaway at the end of the Tutorial!!
Using the Luna to take pics & video, I have found a cool new way to create a fun technology tutorial. 
This projector is AMAZING!! 
It is super easy to set up. All you have to do is attach the USB and MIC in, download the software and it is ready to use. 

There are not a ton of complicated buttons or instructions for this product. Move and adjust the neck of the Luna to get the desired picture and zoom level. 

The biggest plus to the Luna Interactive Projector is its' versatility  and the ability to take still photos, videos, and/or to use it as a web cam! I have been playing around with it for a few days now and I can think of so many ways that it can be used in the classroom. Kids could use the Luna to take photos as a way of showing their work or it can be used in group projects or presentations. There are really so many ways this projector can be implemented into the classroom. As technology advances and lesson planning requires technology integration - this is a must-have resource to have in your classroom. It is light, easy to set up and use, and very inexpensive. 

You can order it on AMAZON for only $122! That is quite a discount. Click on the link below to check it out on AMAZON and read the reviews.

 I couldn't get the video portion of my tutorial formatted in time for today, but I was able to create still photos, which look just as great as taking a snapshot. I can't wait to learn a little bit more and use it to show many of you a live art tutorial!!

  9. Michelle,

    The directions for the button are amazing!!! Thank goodness I found the link through Pinterest! I have already finished my button! Trying to learn the blogging world and photoshop alone is a daunting task, but great pro-bloggers like you make it easy. Thanks for the help!


  10. Thank you so much for this tutorial! I made a button and got all the way to the part where I added it to my blog. When I did this, an icon appeared saying the image had been moved or deleted. I've checked to make sure the link is correct (and it is), so I don't know what to do. Can you help me?
