A Document Camera for Agriculture Education
My students need a document camera so I can demonstrate labs we will be conducting before we begin, as well as displaying students' project and work.
My students learn best by being shown what to do. It is difficult to model work to small groups or individuals due to the size of the classroom and time constraints. My students would benefit greatly by having a document camera that could display for the entire class to see and follow along.
My school is a Title One, high poverty school.
We are a small, public school in rural, northwest Iowa. I teach 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade agriculture education classes. I would like to be able to empower and challenge my students by infusing technology into their love of learning. My students love to learn, but need the right tools to do so.
The majority of my students are visual learners. By showing them documents using the doc cam, I will be able to teach to their learning style. This will make them more successful. Students can also easily share their own work with the rest of the class. The students can share their thought processes with others which enhances their own learning and often helps a peer understand.
In a school that is striving to stay on the cutting edge of educational technology, I am excited to introduce my students and fellow teachers to the many ways we will be able to use the document camera. We will use it throughout each school day. Students will be able to make each of their ideas BIG as their notebooks and work are projected onto the board. The video option will also mean we can record class periods and lessons to post online. This cheaper document camera option will provide many of the things most document cameras offer at nearly a half of the cost.
Seeing is one of the best ways to learn.
Please help me and my students with the power of visual learning through the use of a document camera. The document camera will make sure everyone has the same opportunity to learn, and will build self-esteem by sharing their own work. This document camera will impact 50 students this year and 50 students every year after this.
