I was so excited when I was contacted by Learning Resources to try out their new Luna Interactive Projection Camera. I used it in my classroom last week, and it was great! I already had a document camera that the school provided for every room, but to be completely honest, I might like this one better.
This one was easy to install on my computer, and it was so easy to have it display on my projection screen. The arm makes it easy to move around, and my favorite part is that it can take video. My other document camera didn't do that, so this was a great plus. We took a video of me playing the guitar and the kids singing our "Good Morning Song" and our "Good-bye Song". We shared them at Open House with the parents. I wish I could show you those videos, but I've got to protect my kiddos!
Here are the ways I intend to use the camera:
- to read aloud tiny picture books... on the big screen everyone can see
- to take class videos
- to show samples of work/ rubrics
- to share student work
- to observe things up close on the big screen for science
These are just a few ways I intend to use the camera in the next few weeks. If you don't have a document camera in your room and you would like one that can display things on the screen as well as take pictures and video, this may be a good option for you. At the price, I don't expect teachers to go purchase it right away, but it would be a good thing to put on a Donor's Choose Project or to write a grant for. The number of ways you can use it are endless.
Now, for the good part!
