Are you a Promethean user? Schools have been provided with document cameras and the uses are endless! Need some ideas? I found this recently on Classroom 2.0:
~Make every book a big book…shared reading experience
~put a timer underneath the camera for various applications
~capture student work
~conduct science experiements with insects
~students share writing
~discussing and displaying homework
~any other piece of “stuff” everyone can use, but can’t gather ’round to see easily
~stick today’s paper underneath it and make annotations
~have student plot graphs using a grid you put on the screen
As for our own ideas, one of our art teachers at OB used a document camera to show light source on a still life so that all students had the same view.
If you have any other ideas, please share!
