Document Camera Magic: A Teaching and Learning Transformation

Help me give my students a document camera to create more discussion and student engagement with math and writing.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I teach a group of twenty wonderful 4th graders who have learning differences which impacts their ability to learn skills in reading, writing, math, and/or social skills at the same pace as their peers. My students are with me from one hour per day up to almost a full day, depending on their individual learning needs. Some are quite active and tune out easily with traditional paper and pencil lessons. They learn best with specialized instruction that uses a multi-sensory approach and incorporates hands-on learning, opportunities for discussion, cooperative learning, and technology.

My Project

With the use of a classroom document camera, my students will be more thoughtful and engaged learners. They will get to see things up close when projecting from the camera to our interactive white board. Math lessons that use manipulatives will be easier for them to see when projected from the camera, and they will be motivated to use the camera and manipulatives to demonstrate their knowledge to their peers. Students can work in groups with the document camera to read, revise, and edit student writing. Books will be shared under the camera during read aloud time which will bring the pages to life, and students can use the document camera to do their own individual project presentations. The opportunities are boundless!
