Another Techie Tuesday Giveaway!




Happy Techie Tuesday my friends!
I am excited to tell you about an awesome product that I am giving away and I was privileged to try out  thanks to Learning Resources.  The Luna Interactive Projection Camera is an awesome, easy to use, must have, piece of equipment.


First of all, if you haven't taught with a document camera you don't know what you are missing!  Since using one, I can't teach without it!  Not only is it so easy to use with my promethean board but my students love to use it too.  This particular projection camera has a flexible neck so it can be moved up and down to show whatever image you want.  I've showed everything from a tiny meal worm to student presentations. I even show pictures from a book I am reading aloud on the projection camera so I don't hear "I can't see". The color of the image you're projecting in spot on, very clear and vibrant.

I love using the camera to project a worksheet on my promethean board so the students can complete a question on the board itself or even do the work by looking a the projected worksheet and completed it in their journals(I've saved many trees not having to make so many copies).

This camera is so easy to use. It connects straight into your computer with a USB cord (that is provided) and is powered through the USB as well.  It has software that always the image to be on your computer screen as well as your board/screen.   It is MAC compatible too!  (You will need a projector or an interactive whiteboard in order to use this) It takes pictures and videos  (with audio) with just one touch!

I love that students can use this to show presentations but to be assessed too!   If you have ever been shopping for a projection camera you know that they are expensive.  A camera that does what this camera is capable of is minimum $500.  Learning Resources sells this camera for under $200.

You have the opportunity to win one of these FABULOUS interactive projection cameras right here!  But if you don't win and you are needing/wanting a projection camera I definitely recommend getting one of these.  You can't beat the quality for the price! Winner will be announced on Sunday June 17th.
