My Students

During this nationwide pandemic, our students have been practicing social distancing, school buildings are closed. Yet, students are engaging with teachers through district-wide Distance Learning Educational Lessons. My preschoolers are still preparing for Kindergarten online, I need a document camera to enhance the visual effectiveness.

My Project

Distance and online learning is a complete paradigm shift to facilitating learning for preschools. During sessions, parents were asking me to move my laptop over to the left, to the right so that the student could see information being projected.

Usually a built-in webcam of a laptop is all that is needed for video conferencing, but I asked myself, "How can my students view all the things I need to show them, to help them understand what I am teaching?" As I began to rethink the new set-up, the thoughts of using a document camera to enhance projection, was the answer!

I can use the portable document camera and whiteboard I am requesting, to share stories and lessons for my preschoolers to gain skills. Therefore, it is very important that I have the resources to help them grasp the concepts and skills they need to succeed in the next school year.
