Document Camera so Students Can Share Work and See Modeling
My students need a Belkin Tablet Stage and Stand so they can use the classroom iPad as a document camera to share their work with each other in real time.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
In my classroom, we use the workshop model for reading and writing. I teach them a mini lesson, they practice it, and they share their work and success with each other at the end of the day. The document camera would allow them to show short paragraphs of their books as well as their work.
My school is in an urban area in Oklahoma, serving 2500+ 6th and 7th grade students.
The students come from all over the world, and nearly 1 in 4 students are English Language Learners. For the most part, the students are very eager to learn and look forward to coming to school each day.
My students will share book passages and daily work during our share time. By doing this, students learn how to effectively implement the reading strategies I am teaching by seeing examples from their peers.
Students will be able to hone presentation and public speaking skills by making frequent presentations of work to the class using the document camera stand.
I will be able to model my thinking for the students, using a read aloud book and show them the text as a I read and point out instructional strategies.
My students will have the opportunity to incorporate technology into their daily learning.
They will build confidence through the daily share at the document camera and build interpersonal communication skills by talking with and teaching to their peers.
