The Reading Zone posed some questions (on her blog) about how other teachers use document cameras in the classroom. Since the document camera I was fortunate to have was bestowed upon my room last year, thanks to a grant from DonorsChoose, my teaching has been transformed.
When the document camera first arrived, my students joked that I was using it for everything. Anything and everything that was somewhat small got projected through the document camera and on to the t.v. (I later received another grant for an LCD Projector, so now I project onto a white screen that hangs from the ceiling.)
