Picture This: We Need a Document Camera!

Help me give my students an IPEVO HDMI/USB dual mode document camera that is reliable and clear, so that I can accommodate their individual learning needs.

My Students

I teach in an extremely low-income area, but I have the pleasure of working with students who "come alive" when they enter my classroom. I love seeing how excited they are to come to class every day. They love technology and hands-on learning.

My students tell me constantly that they don’t want to leave my classroom at the end of the day.

They plead with me to show them more photos, videos, and information on subjects we are learning about. They beg me to read “just one more book” and use “[my] silly voices for the characters.” They yearn for my attention because they feel heard, they feel safe, and they feel loved.

My Project

In my classroom, I rely very heavily on technology to make up for the lack of resources that are provided for my English Language Arts classes. Because of massive budget cuts in our state and in our school district, teachers are now being forced to do more with MUCH less--as in less parental support, less materials/technology, less funding, etc.

At this point, I have been taking pictures of every single image in each teacher copy of the texts to project onto my Promethean board in order for my students to actually be able to view the pictures and words in the books I read aloud to them.

With this requested IPEVO document camera that projects a clear, sharp image, the students can actually feel like they're a part of the story. I will also be able to model effectively and efficiently for my students with unique learning needs and students who speak English as a second language.
