Help Them See

My students need a document camera for class instruction.

My Students

Have you ever been in a presentation where you can't see what the heck they are talking about? I know I have. I want my students to be able to stay in their seats and see our classroom demonstrations.

We are a Title I K-9 public charter school in Utah.

We have over 40% of our students on free and/or reduced lunches. We also tested at or near the top, year in and year out as one of the best public schools on state standardized testing. We are usually in the top and almost always in the top 20.

My Project

I want an Epson DC-06 document camera to be able to present demonstration to my students without having them to crowd around a table or squint to see what is happening. With the document camera requested we can do that. I will be able to hook it up to the classroom projector and allow every student to see things equally well. This document camera has a retractable arm to allow us space for documents, but also to demonstrate science and other experiments.

Standard lecturing does not work for every student.

To help all students understand concepts it is necessary to change the delivery methods from time to time. Some can read it and get it, others can hear it and understand it, but seeing is sometimes believing.
