The Sounds of Education

Smart Document Camera

The Diggiditto document camera serves as a research, presentation, and audio video content development tool to engage students in whole class project-based learning. It assists teachers in personalizing instruction for differentiated learning as well as in assessing student performance and guide instruction by capturing student data. While it includes all of the hardware features you'd expect from a leading document camera, when linked to a computer, its proprietary software enables you to record lessons as movies (wmv files), recognize images and link sounds. This allows playback of student- or teacher-created presentations and tutorials and delivers the ability to Skype™ for distance, blended, and flipped classroom learning environments. Creating presentations gives students the ability to gather and synthesize information in order to share with others, which is the focus of Speaking & Listening standard #5 in the Common Core.

With its adjustable mounting stand, the DC596 has a small footprint and uses a USB connection for computer compatibility. It's also Windows compatible and works with Mac video teleconferencing applications such as iChat, Skype, iSight. In partnership with GradeCam™, Califone offers a free 6-month trial of specialized software that enables teachers to quickly and effectively assess and record student performance. The GradeCam software instantly enters the data into electronic gradebooks that teachers are already using saving them a significant amount of time over the school year.
