Document Camera

My students need a document camera so I can easily display student work for the whole class to see.

My Students

Have you ever been into a classroom where a student is sharing their writing with the class but the students are missing out on all the details because they can't see it close up? So the teacher takes the extra 5-10 minutes to pass the paper around. A document camera can solve that problem!

I have not met my 2013-2014 Kindergarten class yet, but my students last year were amazing and constantly working hard to do their best.

Over half of the students at our school receive free or reduced-priced breakfast and lunch. Many of these students were transient and had uncertain home situations. They came to school every day hoping to be happy, safe, content, and smart! Each day I was amazed at their growth and ambitions.

My Project

The document camera is a terrific way to share student work, build student confidence, and presentation skills, and it allows students to participate in the teaching and learning process. With a document camera, the student who is sharing can put their work under the camera where it is now displayed for the whole class to see. This is when they can point to their picture as they tell their story to the class (zooming in on the small details) and when I as the teacher can point out the students' strengths that show in their writing and use that time as a teaching opportunity. This allows the students to gain instantaneous feedback without having to pass their paper around the class, and it allows them to make their thinking visible. This is just one of the many ways the document camera would be used in the classroom.

Help make many of the students' first year in school one full of opportunities to demonstrate their thinking, share their hard work, and dive deeper into technology by allowing them the opportunity to experience what a document camera can do to their learning.
