With so much to learn in today’s classrooms teachers are under tremendous pressure to cover as much material as possible each school year. To accomplish this goal more teachers are turning to information and communication technology tools. These tools allow teachers to teach while captivating their students’ attention. One such vital tool is the document camera. These cameras offer creative learning and can also enrich an education in many ways. Of course, many of the benefits of these learning tools are obvious. One point that is heard often regarding the document camera is how users find it so easy to operate. This is a huge benefit as most teachers do not have time to study how to operate a difficult piece of equipment. Nor do they have time to set up equipment that is time consuming. Students would also become uninterested if the operation or set up was time consuming. Flexibility would be another benefit of the modern document cameras. The user connects their document camera with an interactive whiteboard, projector or monitor. After it is connected you simply turn it on. The document camera stands out as the advantages it offers classrooms. Users can enjoy seeing the desired objects from different angles by turning the document camera while the object stays still. Can you image how this opens the doors of learning? It does not have to be a small object being viewed or a flat object. It can be a large object showing the flexibility of the document camera as the camera itself can be hand held. Classrooms can let their creative learning sides free to explore as the document cameras offer little restrictions for learning. The ability to project onto a large screen gives each student the ability to enjoy the image from their own desks. This ability helps with organization in a classroom and allows real time learning as each student experiences the images at the same time. It is easy to see why teachers consider the document camera a must have for their classrooms.
In the world of document cameras there are different models.The Ken-A-Vision wireless WiFi document camera is designed for today’s classrooms. It can support up to 30 viewing devices making it a great fit for most classrooms. Many classrooms use it due to its ability to connect to their current network for broadcasting support and better imagery. However, it also is used as a stand alone camera. This gives students the ability to use their smartphones and tablets. The free EduCam Apps are easy to install and students love the experience of seeing the images on their tablets and smartphones.
Many of the document cameras in use today are found in science classrooms and laboratories. This is no surprise for most students as our biology classes were where most of us first enjoyed projected images. Our Video Flex document camera was designed specifically for these venues. Designed with a flexible neck and easy to set ball for better mobility providing less restriction for imagery and a quick turn manual focus system this document camera provides its user with a better way to get the best image. This document camera is also constructed of polycarbonate making it chemical and heat resistant.
There are many different models of document cameras each with their own advantage but all effective tools. There is a manual focus document camera which allows the user to set their cameras on a specific part of an object and zero in. We also have an auto focus document camera which works quickly in setting an image for fast clear viewing.
