how to make it focus well–which took me awhile to figure out (I’m notoriously bad at reading directions…I’m kind of a rip-it-out-of-the-package-and-start-using kinda girl!!!).
Tiny backstory: I first learned about this camera over at Proteacher and I am so grateful to those fabulous teachers for sharing this! The IPEVO has completely changed my teaching! We have a few Elmo’s at our school, but they are in very high demand and they are one of those tech tools that you want to use ALL of the time, not just on some lessons.
On to the pictures (those are always the best part, right?). The first photo is of my newest (as in today) setup for the camera, projector, and laptop:
I kept trying to keep the computer near the IPEVO, but would always run out of space for the book/paper.
Back to the IPEVO. It’s really easy to maneuver. The neck can be lowered for a closeup…
Oooo…and semi-related, I also found a spot for my computer speakers:
Well, I hope this was of help to anyone seeking an affordable document camera. I can’t say enough how wonderful it is to have this technology for my ELL students!
Do you have an IPEVO? Or a favorite tech tool that has made a big difference in your class (please don’t say a Smartboard, I know I’ll never get one and I tear up every so often—joking! Kind of!). I’d love to hear about your tech!
