I’ve saved the best product review for last! I am super excited about this one too, and I know you ALL will love it.
Learning Resources sent me this amazing document camera to try out for them:
It is so sweet, and tiny, and lightweight! It is called the Luna Interactive Projection Camera. I had a document camera in my room, but anyone in the school could use it. How do you share a document camera?!
This document camera plugs right into you computer, and once you install the software, you are good to go. (Of course you will need a projector too).
The COOLEST thing about this document camera? It takes pictures! It takes video!!
We had tons of fun using the Luna for shared reading of our little books. I projected a little book on the screen and the children followed along and read as I pointed. Here’s the best part -- we LISTENED back to what we read! I could walk around and listen to kids reading as the video played back, and we could talk about how we all sounded when we read. They thought it was the coolest thing EVER!
(That’s not me – this is a picture from Learning Resources )
The Luna can also take pictures, so, if we are working through an art project or directed drawing together, I could take pictures of each step. Later, I could import them into a flipchart or a document for my later reference or for a child that may have missed the activity.
The only thing I disliked about the Luna? You had to have the projector plugged into your computer. With my other document camera, I could just plug my projector cable into the document camera and I’m good to go. I don’t always have my laptop plugged into my whiteboard.
Here’s a video showing more of what Luna can do.
The Luna is priced at an affordable amount for schools at $199.00. But, wait…..you can WIN ONE!
