Re: document cameras
I have a very limited budget and was thrilled to find the IPEVO point 2 view camera. It costs around $79 at Amazon. You do need a digital projector. I had seen this video http://youtu.be/uGrihxSmQfo by Tim, a fellow teacher on line during my search for a camera. He explains the camera's uses and gives you a demo.
Enjoy the day,

> I know that some of you use document cameras to demo in your classrooms. My question is what kind do you have, how much did it cost and would you recommend it?
> My room is really bad for table demo and I have a lot of students extremely new to creating in 3-D and manipulating materials. I thought a document camera might be the way to go. I also thought of perhaps hooking up my old video camera (Sony Hi 8 ) or my digital camera that takes video and stream it to the TV. But that is kind of small for a large classroom.
