I purchased an iPevo Point 2 Share document camera for $69. Yes, only $69. This is my own personal camera, but I also want to purchase some with school monies so classrooms can have them. I can see the classrooms with Promethean Boards benefitting greatly from this tool. My principal is on board. My co-workers are on board. I think it will be an excellent addition to teachers’ tool boxes.
I have used mine to read aloud, show keyboarding, and to display objects so far. My teachers envision using them to display math manipulatives and how to solve problems.
Addition: iPevo offers and educators discount of only $64 a camera! And free shipping!
