We Need An Overhead On Steroids!

Our classroom needs a document camera.

I teach fourth grade at a high poverty level school, with a large population of second language learners. My school does not have money to buy consumables (workbooks) or for copies.

So, how do I teach? I use a poor quality, black and white document camera that my students have to strain to see. This translates into frustration for us all. What is a document camera? A document camera is basically a small camera mounted on a stand which is hooked up to an LCD projector. It functions somewhat like an overhead projector; any object you put beneath a document camera is projected onto a screen, but in color and without any transparencies.

How do we use a document camera? We use the document camera to look at all kinds of things; a page from a book, photographs, 3-D objects, student’s work, the possibilities are endless. With the camera students can share their work, I can demonstrate a concept, science experiments are easier to see and students are engaged in the learning.

Your help in providing a document camera would increase my students' motivation, enhance their learning, lower our daily costs of copies/worksheets, and would be used each day in every subject.
