During the stay at home order, my students and I are engaged in distant learning. However, it has been difficult to work with students when explaining math problems without the proper tools. Students are having challenges understanding problems without seeing them solved step by step. Additionally, some students aren't able to tune-in while I am on, so a document camera will allow me to record my explanations and post them for viewing any time a student wants to access them.
I am hoping to get a document camera I can easily record myself solving problems in detail.
This will enable students to have a step-by-step visual of my explanations when solving problems any time they want. We're already going through stressful times now, so it would be nice to be able to allow students to watch these videos at their convenience.
In this time of distant learning, it's been difficult to connect with my students by simply uploading worksheets online and posting someone else's videos.
I would like to create my own videos for students so students can still feel connected to me, their teacher.
Additionally, I would like to be able to provide students with office hours where they can ask me questions and I can answer them in real time. Having a document camera will allow me to do this with ease. Although we are all in an uncertain time, we are all trying our best to maintain some sense of normalcy.
