Document Camera For French Class

My students need a document camera so they can visualize pictures, texts, documents related to French culture and civilization.

  • $516 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

It is not always possible for my students to visit France although they have been learning the language for a few years, so let's bring France to their classroom!

My students are very curious and enthusiastic, they come from different background but they all want to learn about French culture!

They always inquire about French lifestyle and French people, they can learn from books but we are limited in textbooks and most of them are just too old.

My Project

With this document camera, we won't need to have a book for each students, they could all follow on the projector. We can also project pictures and documents. It would save paper by not making copies. Students can also do peer editing by visualizing each other works. This would be a tool used everyday in the classroom.

We currently use an overhead projector but we constantly need to print transparencies which becomes quite costly.

This new piece of material would allow us to be more efficient and resourceful. We already have a projector and should have a laptop soon but need a visual presenter to enhance student experience. The students and I will use it on a daily basis. It would be such a great help.
