Did you know you can get a document camera for under $100?
Check out this little beauty at Amazon for just $68! It's called an IPEVO Point 2 View USB Camera, and you will love it! Most Elmos and other competitive brands start at around $400, so this is a steal!
It hooks up directly to your USB on your computer and then uses your projector to magnify objects.
I use mine to:
- demonstrate good handwriting technique
- enlarge book pictures and point out text
- demonstrate how to complete assignments
- show students how to use the itouch applications
My fantastic room mom took up a collection at Christmas, and this was my class Christmas present! (How amazing are they?!)
Do YOU have a document camera? If so, how do you use it?
