This paper proposes a simple solution for a teacher to easily construct intra-school wireless LAN (WLAN) environment in an ordinary classroom. No special knowledge on ICT and the related technologies is required in the construction procedure. The teacher only connects some cables between the prepared three components as 1) access point, 2) LCD projector, and 3) HDMI screen projection device. These devices are all low-priced. It also takes about 3 to 4 minutes to complete the WLAN environment. The proposed solution is not only simple but also has enough performance to connect all of the teacher’s and learners’ information terminals in the classroom via the constructed WLAN. The system makes it possible to share data in the information terminals on the LCD projector with ease. So the proposed simple WLAN environment may be a help to spread and accelerate the ICT utilization in education in Japan, even for small boards of education with difficulties in developing an appropriate ICT system.
