Document Camera

In a perfect world, your students would be in class every day and every student would be at the same stages of your lesson plans. But life happens. Sometimes students can be out for athletic activities, sick days, or suspension. Keeping track of where every student is in your lesson plan can be tough, making it difficult to know which students may need to take home assignments. They may have missed out on key information that even make up work cannot help. The Boardshare High Definition Document Camera can help!

With the Boardshare High Definition Document Camera, you can record videos, turn captured images into video, and use a time-lapse feature that allows you to digitally annotate. These features can be useful in the classroom in multiple ways:

  1. Record Videos- Sometimes students need extra help they can’t get at school. You can use your Boardshare High Definition Document Camera to record lesson plans or live classroom days. Students who are absent will be able to watch these and feel like they were in class while catching up. They will enjoy the benefits of seeing first hand what the conversation was around and can pause or stop while doing assignments. You can also share with other teachers, staff, or parents. With the help of parents and your videos, they will be up to date.
  2. Captured Image to Video- Some students are visual learners while others are verbal learners. Turning your PDF assignments into a video with side notes and voiceover narration can bring a full picture for both types of learners.
  3. Time-lapse- Some students need to see someone else work out a problem to know how to solve the one they are working on. If you’re working through something on paper, you can use the time-lapse feature to make a video working out an equation or creating a drawing. This would help students see fast-paced versions of what they are working on.

As you can see, the Boardshare High Definition Document Camera can be used in the classroom in various ways. With the USB feature, it can hook into your computer, laptop, or projector making it run throughout your entire lesson. And this high-resolution camera is incredibly affordable compared to other makes and models.

On top of all the ways this can incorporate into the classroom the Boardshare High Definition Document Camera is also great for business settings. It can be used for business presentations, webinars, lectures and more!

5 Reasons to Invest in Document Cameras for Education

Document cameras are slowly becoming a common tool in schools and universities, and for a good reason. This type of technology can help give students, teachers, and staff a way to provide clearer access to information and enhance learning programs. But for some departments or boards, it might be hard to persuade them to provide the necessary budget for document cameras. Here’s a list of compelling reasons why you should invest document cameras in education for your institution.

1. Allows for better visibility, flexibility and accessibility. There are a range of abilities and benefits that a document camera can provide. For one, using a document camera can give your students a better look at any items or documents you want to show them, especially for the tiniest details on a piece of paper or on an object. In large lecture halls and big classrooms, this is especially important and useful. Some, like the Hamilton Buhl VP20M Cyclops Visual Presenter, also come with a built-in microphone to help not only project one’s documents, but also one’s voice.

In addition, a document camera allows for teachers and students to present an array of documents and objects to the class. In addition to papers, the document camera can also show 3D objects, from artifacts to 3D models. Some models, like the QOMO HiteVision QView Document Camera, are also capable of connecting other electronics, such as laptops, tablets, cameras, DVD players, and more through HDMI, which removes the need for supplementary equipment for a classroom.

2. Portable for flexibility. There are a great number of document camera models that are very portable, which can serve multiple classrooms throughout the day. The QOMO HiteVision QView Utra Portable Document Camera is a great, lightweight and eco-efficient camera that can give teachers more control over where to place the camera, as well as where to store it after use. For tech departments, this can allow for better management of equipment across a number of classrooms, especially if a budget does not allow for a document camera for every room.

3. Acts as a tool for tactile learning. Younger students can benefit from a tactile aspect of learning, and document cameras can give them an easy way to do this. Not only will students learn to use new technology, but working with the camera and showing their abilities through it will allow for an improved learning experience, especially for students who learn best with hands-on work and presentations.

4. Allows for the creation of video lessons easily. This can be especially helpful for educators, who want to record their lessons for austerity, or for having class notes and lectures available for students who were out sick or on leave. Models like the Adesso NuScan offer the ability to snap photos or create videos, which makes recording lessons easy and efficient.

5. Allows for easy scanning and file collection. Many classrooms and learning centers can benefit from using a document camera as a way to scan and save files easily. Many document cameras, like the Adesso NuScan, come with special software that can make filing and organizing easy to do, without needing to learn a new categorization system. In addition, document cameras can help supplement common tasks, such as scanning and copying, especially when available scanners are in-use. They therefore save some time and money.

Overall, document cameras can help reduce overall technology costs by serving as a multi-function tech tool in the classroom. In addition, these cameras can really enhance classroom instruction and learning, for both students and teachers. To learn more about document cameras, and the various models we offer, contact us.
