Video Camera for Classroom Use!

My students need a video camera, tripod, case and other accessories to film projects for all academic subject areas.

My Students

Let's keep up with 2012! Learning is more powerful when it is interactive and incorporates many styles of learning.

I have a 5/6 combo this year.

It is a diverse group including general education students, second language learners who receive free or reduced lunch due to economic hardships their families face, special needs students, and high achievers. Many students have busy lives outside the classroom. They are energetic and eager to learn. Technology is a big part or our school. Each child has their own laptop and is familiar with a project based learning environment.

My Project

I would like to purchase a video camera so students can incorporate learning with the arts, technology and academic knowledge. The camera would include all curricular areas. For example, in history students could create a play to demonstrate what the have learned about the Ancient Egyptian culture. Utilizing extra memory cards and the reader will allow multiple groups to transfer data to their computers. The tripod will make it easier for the cameraman to film. The case will keep the camera safe as the kids are filming around the campus.

Video cameras are exciting and are a fun way to show what you have learned.

More kids will get invested in the learning process when the project is fun. It includes several types of learning. Many students learn more by doing. Children who struggle with answering questions from a book may excel when they show what they know in front of a camera.
