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!

For more information or to order your own Boardshare High Definition Document Camera, the fine staff at Encore Data Products, Inc. will be happy to help!

ON EAR HEADPHONES

Using on-ear classroom headphones is an economical solution for schools and educational centers to meet the demands of 21st-century education, technology, and testing requirements. The ear cushions rest on the outer ear, making the headphone light, comfortable and less prone to overheating the ears. The on-ear headphone style also allows the wearer the benefit from hearing the outside environment.
Selected with classrooms, learning and language labs, training facilities and educational touring in mind, Encore brings you a large selection from best brands in the business: Hamilton, Califone, AVID Education and our own designs. Whether you need disposable, multi-use with replaceable parts or easy to clean and disinfect on-ear headphones, our knowledgeable customer care team will guide you through determining your school’s needs and set you up with the audio equipment that fits your budget. Many early learning headphones, pre-school headphones, and early education headphones in this category meet the PARCC and Common Core testing requirements.

OVER-EAR HEADPHONES

Our over-ear headphones create an enriched, personal hearing environment. These are ideal for educational settings as they provide high-quality sound with the durable designs for day-in-day-out use. Selected with classrooms, learning and language labs, training facilities and educational touring in mind, Encore brings you a large selection from best brands in the business: Hamilton, Califone and AVID Education. The headphone earcups provide ambient noise-reducing qualities to allow the user to focus on the audio rather than external sounds. Whether you need stereo, mono or dual stereo/mono headphones with or without volume control, our knowledgeable customer care team will guide you through determining your facility’s needs and set you up with the audio equipment that fits your budget. Most headphones in this category meet the PARCC and Common Core testing requirements.
As a quick rule of thumb, [block]3[/block] are ideal for listening to single source recordings such as content for language learning and development (ELL/ELD) activities, speech pathology, and lesson videos.
[block]4[/block] are ideal for educational gaming, online learning, music appreciation classes and 21st-century learning using mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.
It is important to know if the audio source is a mono or stereo player as well since plugging a stereo headphone into a mono source will result in sound only coming from one of the two earcups. These are great for early learning, pre-school, and educational settings.

HEADSETS WITH MICROPHONES

Encore helps you keep it simple or go high tech when your school is in need of [block]5[/block]. Consider our many selections of early learning headphones and educational headsets. Selected with classrooms, learning and language labs, training facilities and educational touring in mind, Encore brings you a large selection from the best brands in the business: Hamilton, Califone, Cyber Acoustics and AVID Education.
Simple and economical earbuds or on-ear headsets with a boom or an inline mic can help your school engage in English Language Arts, language learning and development (ELL/ELD) activities, speech pathology, and other individualized instructional activities.
Schools with larger learning centers and bigger budgets may want to consider [block]6[/block] with mono/stereo, volume control or noise control options to provide the optimum individual learning environment from early learning through High School.
If your school is planning ahead for future PARCC and Common Core testing, legislation will begin requiring headphones with microphones for speaking and listening testing.

 

 

CLASSROOM EARBUDS
Should I buy classroom or disposable earbuds?
Classroom Ear Buds are sturdier and designed for long term usage.
[block]8[/block]Bulk Disposable Earbuds are priced LOW and still often last as long as the classroom versions, just without a warranty.  Great for testing, short-term use or giveaways.

WIRELESS HEADPHONES

Wireless headphones provide flexibility for those who do a lot of personal listening. No wires to tangle you up allows for greater mobility to listen, learn, play or work.
Encore’s selected systems are compatible for SMART/HDTV, DVD, Blu-Ray, gaming systems, computers, tablets, TV, mobile phones and music devices. Our wireless headphones are ideal for language learning, literacy groups, ELL / ELD applications, audiobook listening, and testing centers. Our brand options allow from 100′ to 300’ reception range from the digital wireless transmitter.
Choose from Califone’s color-coded transmission headphones or Hamilton’s multi-channel Bluetooth transmitter headphones; both allow up to four different color-coded channels of simultaneous audio listening. Headphones are sold separately or in systems of four.

MULTIPACKS

Looking to create a media center or learning lab within your school? Allow Encore to provide you with package options to meet your budget and learning and testing needs. Encore brings you the best options from Hamilton and Califone. Choose from on-ear or over-ear headphones and headsets in sets of 5, 10 or 12. Each set comes with a unique carry/storage kit. From early learning headphones to educational headphones these packs have many uses.
These sets are also great for libraries, testing center, museum tours, office environments, hotels, spas, gyms, airlines, tour companies and more.
