I was delighted to receive this product towards the end of my school year, and put it to use almost immediately! We used the camera as a way for students to show off a project that they were working on in class. I was able to move the camera from group to group, and thus minimize the amount of distraction due to transitioning an entire group of middle school children from one part of the room to the other. The kids were able to share what they were working on as a group, garner feedback, and adjust their practices as needed. I especially loved when the kids were able to provide direction to groups in "real time,'" and the groups were able to take the feedback and then show the rest of the class how they were applying the information right away! I really love my iZiggi Wireless's a great way for me to be able to ensure that students are able to share what they are doing in class, whilst minimizing the time it takes them to share....which is very important when time in class is limited!

The picture I uploaded is from 8th grade Mandala projects. The students were able to have the camera at their table to share what their Mandala represented, and then we used the iZiggi to take pics of each Mandala. I then uploaded the pics, and posted them on the class website for parents to see! It was a great way to get a digital image of my students work...not to mention space saving too! Many of my kids wanted to keep their Mandalas, so it was nice to be able to give them back at the end of the day knowing I had a digital copy!
