Now You See Me! Document Camera for Art Instruction

Help me give my students a clear view of what I am demonstrating in art class with a document camera.

My Students

Our Middle School is an inner-city school with a diverse population. We have over 750 children walking through our hallways, speaking a variety of languages and coming from different socioeconomic backgrounds. Individual student art experiences range from kids who go to art camps and take classes at the local art college, to students who have never used paint, or experienced building in clay.

My classroom is a safe place where students of all abilities can come and express themselves and learn how art can enrich their lives on a daily basis.

My Project

Currently, I demonstrate and explain directions at the front of my classroom using an easel and a whiteboard. Students in the back of the classroom often have trouble seeing what I am doing, especially if it involves fine details. Class sizes are too large to effectively demonstrate at a table with the students gathered around me at a table - not all students can see what I am doing. In addition, demonstrating painting processes is a challenge on a vertical board! Using a document camera will allow the students to be more engaged in the learning process by providing clear directions and techniques that all students can see. Demonstrating painting techniques would make understanding lesson objectives easier for the students because they would be able to actually see my hands mixing paint and creating brush strokes. A horizontal surface would make all demonstrations so much easier and more successful.
