Why Should I Use a Document Camera?

  1. Very easy to use.

  2. Engages students.

  3. Connects with Visual Learners.

  4. Allows Hands On Learners an opportunity to explain and manipulate objects.

  5. Less copies needed by the teacher.

  6. Display notes and math problems.

  7. Maps.

  8. Magazines.

  9. Newspaper Articles.

  10. Zoom into specific details you want to present.

  11. Share articles and clips and demonstrate annotation/editing/highlighting/outlining

  12. Science Classes - students can see the teacher dissecting a frog that is displayed so that all of the class can easily see. Or, you can show the difference between beetles and butterflies in a unique, new way.

  13. Geometry Classes - use your document camera to add a 3D twist to the complicated world of pyramids, cones and cylinders.

  14. Geology Classes - teachers can show up-close and personal different types and textures of rocks.

  15. Art Classes - Students can watch and see more clearly techniques on molding clay and making perfect brush strokes.

  16. Capture images from the class, such as that dissected frog, and use them as auxiliary materials for study guides and tests.

  17. Put exactly what the students previously saw under the camera on a test, quiz, or worksheet.
