After the chalkboard and white board, but before the slide show, there was this thing called the overhead projector. Ah yes, the overhead projector! Those bulky machines that showed pictures and lecture notes—talk about retro! In our modern world, technology has moved society in a rapid progression, creating new lines of communication each year.
