My Students

Quick, exact, and awesome, document cameras allow students and teachers have their real-time presentations and work to be projected for the whole class to see. Modeling is one of the keys of learning, and this equipment brings it into the 21st century.

Our students are curious learners.

They learn collaboratively with relevant projects to explore current issues. Our class of 68 is diverse in their abilities and backgrounds. This diversity augments our learning environment. This age group is energetic and dynamic in their quest for truth and finding their own niche in their families, our community and the world.

My Project

Document cameras are a simple yet extremely effective way to project work for the whole class to see. We are already using LCD projectors in our classroom on a daily basis. Document cameras, enhance the use of our projectors by allowing teachers or students to share any piece of paper (like a students work as an exemplar) or item (like a rose), or action (rose dissection) for the class to see in real time. It is an awesome way to model and demonstrate for everyone to see!

At Exploris, we are continually seeking ways, tools and methods to enhance the learning of each student.

Document cameras are such an incredible way to model and demonstrate for everyone to see. Since our work is so collaborative, these cameras would further enliven our classroom and the projectors that we have already purchased.
