I think I was one of the few teachers left that didn't have a document camera. Well, now I do! I feel like I finally joined the 21st century!
This is the one I got. It's beautiful! It's teeny tiny, and fits right on my projector cart, and connects to my laptop. I'm imagining all the wonderful things I can do with it, from sharing children's work to demonstrating science experiments to modeling math problems with manipulatives.
I think the best part is that I can get rid of that clunky overhead projector. I admit, the overhead projector helped a lot of children learn a lot of stuff, but it's so 20th century! I'm definitely ready for the document camera!
Now that I've got it, I'm looking for ideas on how to use it. Do you have a document camera? How do you use it?
