This week I wanted to highlight some ways I came up with to use the doc cams that some of you have in your classrooms. I came up with a few ideas, but I invite you to please share some ways you use this tool for instruction in your classroom in the comments section below.
Use the doc cam to snap a photo of a shared reading text (Comprehension toolkit, picture book, etc) and interact with it using the SMART Board
Take pictures of student work to share with the entire class for discussion. Then save these in your SMART Notebook lessons for next year so you have student samples to show.
Have students take pictures of their work when they finish. This can be used a formative check to help guide your instruction for the next day.
Take a picture of an object with the vocabulary word written underneath of it. This will allow students to see pictures of the object and the word simultaneously.
Snap photos of students work and use it to create rubrics as a whole class. (ex. quality journal entries, showing your work in math, writing samples)
