Document Camera Makes the Rounds
I really enjoy seeing a creative teacher working with a document camera and projector or large screen monitor to augment the curriculum with everything from a magazine article to live video of artifacts or lab equipment. AverMedia Technologies’ CP300 portable document camera makes it a lot easier to share these devices, rather than having one per room. Small, light and easy to fold up, it can go from classroom to classroom as needed yet faithfully reproduce images of 3-D objects with its 3.2 megapixel camera and zoom in on details. The camera costs $800
Specs: 24 frames per second of video, 3.2 megapixel images, 16X zoom.
Bottom line: Why get a document camera for each room, when you can share them.
