Making the Most of a Mobile Classroom

My students need a document camera as a way to see the books I am reading with them and examples of the work we are completing.

My Students

I do not have a classroom, but I do have an amazing cart that I move from room to room. I am teaching Reading Enrichment but often do not have class sets of books. To cut down on set-up time and to provide another avenue for processing information, I would like to have a document camera.

I teach students in grades second, third, and fourth.

Our school has a focus on math, science, and technology. We serve a broad range of students from many different backgrounds. Some of our students' only experience with good literature comes from the teachers here.

My Project

With this document camera, I will be able to walk into other teachers' rooms and plug it in to their computers with minimal time wasted, which gives my students more time learning. This document camera will provide visuals for the many texts we read and the graphic organizers we use. The students will be able to have another pathway for learning and be able to stay more focused. They will also be working on their reading skills and not just their listening skills.

This document camera will make it so that my students will be more actively engaged.

Instead of just listening to me read, they will be able to read along. Instead of craning their necks so they can see as I walk around, the images will be projected large and clear in front of them.
