Document Cameras

 How can I...
  • explain a concept with manipulatives so all my students can see?
  • turn a read aloud into a "big book"?
  • have students demonstrate their work/ ideas on paper to share with the class?
  • combine verbal and visual instructions to support English language learners?
  • project an image (like a map or graphic) and still be able to take it around the room to help students?
  • document changes for a science project that takes place over hours, days, or weeks?

Document cameras allow you to do all of this and so much more.  Below are some resources to help you get the most out of your document camera so it doesn't just become a fancy overhead projector.
