Our school is about to purchase quite a bit of technology. Which is good, we are way behind. The asst. superintendent and the technology coordinator decided "standardized all classrooms".
That means that all rooms will have
- Ceiling mounted projector
- Desktop teacher station (already in place)
- Document Camera
- IWB or Tablet
They cut a bunch of other items (mp3 players, flip camcorders, etc) to make all standardized. My question is "What activities are there for the document camera in Social Studies and English Language Arts rooms that couldn't be done with the IWB or Tablet?"
