Document Camera

I am so excited!  Today I got to play with our school’s new document camera!  I am thrilled because I am already dreaming up ways to use it in class.  However, I would love to know how you use document cameras in your classes.


Do you have a document camera?  Do you rely on it daily or just pull it out every so often?  What are some of your favorite ways to use it?

  1. Hi…I use my doc camera every day and don’t know how I would teach without it anymore! I like to have kids come up and put their work underneath to explain a math problem. I also like that I don’t have to worry about not having a transparency if I want to show something to the class. I use it to model my reading responses and I can leave it up there during reading workshop so that the kids can look back at it…no more chart paper! I put EVERYTHING under my camera! Feel free to email if you have any other questions!

  2. Mine transformed my teaching last year in so many ways. Shall I post about it?

  3. Thanks, Mary!!!

    Stacey, I would love to hear how you use yours!
