One of my favorite things about being a history teacher is going to different historical sites and buying a whole bunch of cool primary sources for my kids to use in class. Many of these documents are produced on the cool parchment like paper, and I have found that it makes them difficult to scan and upload onto the computer. I love the look of the documents and wish I had a way to show my students these types of documents in their somewhat authentic form. That is where the USB Document Camera comes in. This device will allow me to show my students these documents up on the Smartboard, annotate them, analyze them, etc. I would love to have this amazing piece of technology in my classroom for not only me to have fun with, but my students as well.
