First Year Teacher Would Love a Document Camera For Students!

My students need a document camera to maximize their learning experience.

My Students

The students in my class would benefit from a document camera so that they can see books, worksheets, and hands-on learning up close! Some students have a hard time seeing far away, which is why a document camera would give students the opportunity to maximize their learning.

My students come from a diverse population and are all very eager to learn something new each day!

A document camera is a great resource to have in my classroom because it gives students the chance to follow along with me step by step.

My Project

I am a first year teacher and I am quickly beginning to find out how fast the necessities can add up! Back when I was a student, I constantly had a hard time seeing the board as well as following along with my teacher. When I first used a document camera while student teaching, I was very amazed how much this camera improved each student's learning. This camera can project anything I put under it on the SMART board. I would use this camera to project the requested National Geographic books, experiments, student work, photographs and much more! With the use of technology, I believe we can make children's educational experience much more exciting :)
