The following article featuring the Spectrum Media Manager V2 was recently published in THE Journal.

FETC Showcase
The annual conference returns Jan. 22-25 to Orlando, FL, promising to unveil the newest product innovations in educational technology. Here's a sneak preview of what you'll be seeing on the showroom floor.
Spectrum Furniture Media Manager V2
Compact enough to be whisked from room to room, Spectrum Furniture's Media Manager V2, a technology lectern, is also versatile enough to accommodate the expanding role of multimedia equipment in education. Internally, it is spacious enough to hold a full complement of rack rail equipment, house a tower CPU, and provide a secure place to store a laptop and document camera. Externally, it has ample room on the work surface for a desktop or laptop computer, projector, or any other piece of peripheral equipment. It also comes standard with a flip-up, selflocking task shelf for additional workspace or equipment and a locking laptop storage drawer. The laptop drawer doubles as a keyboard tray, featuring a flip-down, padded wrist rest.
Another standard feature is its pull-out, locking document- camera drawer, which conceals and secures the camera internally. Included with the drawer is an anti-skid pad to prevent the camera from sliding when the drawer is opened or closed.
Two-point locking doors are built into the front and back of the lectern, and on the document camera door. The locks can be keyed the same or differently. When unlocked, the doors can be opened and closed using the lock lever.
The lectern has four 4-inch, heavyduty locking casters, 1,200-pound total capacity, and a retractable 20-foot power cord reel. Recessed handles are available on both ends of the cart to make moving the lectern easier. For more information, visit here.

New Product: Tablet Locker

We’ve been busy and it doesn’t look like we’ll be taking a break soon! Spectrum’s newest product is the InTouch20 Secure Tablet Locker.


We’re taking a good idea and making it smaller! Adding iPad, eReader or other tablet technology to the curriculum? The InTouch20Secure Tablet Locker is the little cousin to the InTouch40 Tablet Cart and is just the thing for the small classroom. The wire management and numbered slots make organization and charging easy. With the optional Synchronizing Kit, apps can be added and the tablets synchronized. Security, charging and syncing all in a small footprint to fit in the small classroom!


You can look to Spectrum for solutions whether you’re in the market for a lectern, desk and tables, or mobile computing storage and charging carts.

First Wiki Launched Today

WikiWikiWeb, the first wiki or user-editable website, was launched on March 25, 1995 and still is a valuable source of information and sharing.
The concept and development of the “Wiki” came from Ward Cunningham in a hope to create a web page that was quickly editable by the users. In Cunningham’s case, it was to establish and promote an exchange of ideas between programmers within his company.

Cunningham originally was going to call his new platform “QuickWeb,” but later he remembered a Honolulu language term for “fast” used by an airport counter employee. The employee told Cunningham to take the Wiki Wiki Shuttle, a shuttle bus line that runs between the airport's terminals. "Wiki Wiki" is a repeating of "wiki", a Hawaiian language word for fast.

From the “Front Page” of the WikiWikiWeb:

The idea of a “Wiki” may seem odd at first, but dive in and explore its links! The “Wiki” is a composition system; it’s a discussion medium; it’s a repository; it’s a mail syst…
