Classroom Technology

Most Thornton classrooms are equipped with the following:

  • 1/8th (3.5mm) inch audio connection for audio playback (the connection you would find on an iPod, for example)
  • VGA video connection
  • DVD/CD player
  • Thornton provides 1/8th inch audio cables and VGA cables

Please visit our classroom audio/visual page for more information.

Video Connection

If you do not have a VGA input on your computer, you may need to bring a video adapter with you in order to connect to our video systems. Most Mac laptops will need an adapter. A quick guide to Mac laptop adapters can be found here.
