How can I resolve this relocation of a teachers PC?
We have a food technology room where the teachers desk is an island in the middle front of the room and historically the teachers PC for the room was on a trolley near the whiteboard.
We have had to move this due to logistical problems with the room - so it is now placed on the desk with a piece of 6 by 2 screwed to the desk all the way up to the false ceiling and then there is trunking running down the plank of wood.
This has resolved one problem - in that the logistical problems have gone away however I now have two issues;
a) Some students cannot see the whiteboard as the wooden pole is in the way
b) The head of department and head teacher are unhappy with this solution and think that it looks a mess.
My thinking is that if I find some rigid trunking to run from the top of the teachers desk to the ceiling then it will be fine - although I am not having much joy finding any.
In other schools I've seen something like 1 inch square trunking that sits into feet on the desk at ceiling and the post stands up between the feet - does anyone know what this is called or where I can find it?!
The other solution would be to wirelessly link the PC up however we need USB for smartboard, audio for sound system and dual vga connectivity - does anyone know of anything available which can do that?
