Previously, we covered some classroom solutions using IPEVO doc cams for visually impaired students. In this entry, we’ll explain how to use the IS-01 Interactive Whiteboard System for the same purpose. The IS-01 setup is a little more complicated but it comes with a couple benefits, including real-time annotation of your material. This setup is also beneficial to students who might have trouble seeing marker lines on your conventional whiteboard.
We’ve gotten lots of feedback from teachers asking how IPEVO doc cams can help their visually impaired students in the classroom. Let’s discuss some simple setups that could help your students see teaching material better.
Doc Cam and Computer
Capturing teaching material (like what’s written on the whiteboard) and then displaying it on a computer screen is one solution that might work for your classroom.
Catering to different learning styles, increasing student engagement, and creating opportunities to interact are all hallmarks of modern teaching. The trend toward more technology in classrooms is simply a reflection of this shift.
Getting students excited about what they’re learning is half the battle when it comes to being a teacher. And this is particularly true when a student (often wrongly) feels he or she doesn’t have the aptitude for the subject you’re teaching. So, how can technology help generate that crucial enthusiasm? Here’s a taste of what teachers from around the Twitterverse have been doing with one teaching tool in particular, the IS-01 Interactive Whiteboard System from IPEVO. As you’ll see, a range of subjects are covered, so maybe a technique here might be useful for your own subject and teaching style. Here’s IS-01 in art class, demonstrating perspective so that the whole class can see and understand.
How can technology help visually impaired students see teaching material better? This question was recently posed to IPEVO team members, and it got a lot of us talking. After all, making sure material is accessible by all is an important consideration for teachers.
We put our heads together and came up with some straightforward setups using IPEVO teaching tools that might just help the visually impaired students in your classroom. Please check out the video and tell us what you think!
Our final entry in the back to school series features a device synonymous with IPEVO: the document camera. If you’re not familiar, IPEVO doc cams capture documents, artwork, 3D objects and devices with screens. Real-time video can then be shared and/or projected for the class. It’s an effective (and affordable) way to present teaching material.
In part 2 of our back to school series, we take a look at the IPEVO IS-01 Interactive Whiteboard System. We think it has a lot to offer teachers for a very low price – $149! – which is potentially thousands less than conventional interactive whiteboards.
It’s that time of year again – back to school time! And if you’re a teacher looking to create a technology-rich classroom but you don’t have a lot of wiggle room in the budget, IPEVO has some smart solutions to add innovation to your curriculum with less money.
This first entry focuses on boosting learning with iPad. iPad is a tremendous tool for education, and IPEVO has a couple ways to maximize your use of tablets in the classroom.
Click Clack MOO! Oh no, let’s get this right… Click Clack Pen!!!! Welcome to Mrs. Decker’s Magic Pen! The IS-01 is kindergarten’s “Magic Pen”! It is a regular staple in our AM and PM kindergarten classes! Since the induction of pen in Room 101, the children, our classroom aide and I have been able to use this form of technology on a daily basis! Listed below are just a few of the many ways the IS-01 helps to educate my students on a daily basis:
The IPEVO IS-01 has transformed the learning of my first graders in so many ways! It is amazing that this technology allows our whiteboard to function as an interactive whiteboard at such a small cost. The students are always excited to participate in learning activities when they know they will get to use the pen to display their learning.
