My students need to upgrade the current FlexCam I have to the FlexCam 2 so the demos done are more interactive, can be shared online and on their own personal devices.
Ever sat in a science class, shifting so you could get a better view of the demonstrations the teacher was conducting? Did you feel disconnected or unengaged because the experiment wasn't at your fingertips? The FlexCam2 can bring those demonstrations to life, engaging kids in active discussion.
My students are sixth graders who are eager to learn.
They've learned the value of asking questions and do so every day. They want to see and explore everything as close up as feasibly possible and will look at every possible choice when exploring answers to the questions that are posed every day. They love the hands on experience of labs and get excited when I bring in some new demonstration. For most of them, this is their first time doing hands on, laboratory science. What I enjoy most about my students is how they'll take something I'll talk about in class and take it to the next level, trying to make sense of what it was they just learned and apply it in some other way. Our school encourages that type of leadership and believes that all students have some sort of leadership potential. We just have to take the time to discover that potential and help it grow.
I am seeking to upgrade my current FlexCam document camera to a FlexCam2 that has recording and streaming capability to increase engagement and involvement during my demonstrations. With the use of the FlexCam2 and an accompanying free app, the demonstrations I do can be streamed live to their electronic devices. That will allow them to watch real time what I'm doing without having to strain to be able to see. Watching on their devices will also give them a closer look at what's going on so they can be further engaged in discussing their observations with each other and asking those questions that will help solve the mystery of what's going on in the demonstration. The FlexCam2 will also allow me to record my demonstrations and put them on my YouTube channel for easy access at home so students can revisit the demonstrations or see them if they were absent that day. Creating a video database of demonstrations, notes, etc will allow for my classroom to be accessed anytime from home.
Science is a hands on, learn by doing discipline.
Unfortunately, not all the labs can be done in a hands on lab setting because either resources are scarce or for safety reasons, the lab is better as a demonstration. Your donations will help make demonstrations more engaging for my students as well as make the learning that takes place in my classroom available outside of the classroom. Imagine all the dynamic discussion and interesting and new discoveries that your donations could help foster.
