Art is a visual medium. And when you’re teaching art for an entire classroom of students, sharing different types of artwork can be a problem. That’s why more and more art teachers are turning to the IPEVO iZiggi-HD Wireless Document Camera to present their work in glorious HD. iZiggi-HD is small and it’s wireless, meaning you can place it most anywhere, and it’s definitely not a budget breaker. Let’s take a look at some real-life examples of the doc cam in action.

Here’s Mrs. Smith’s art class in Black River Middle School. While Mrs. Smith is at her desk drawing with models, she’s using iZiggi-HD to capture every stroke. The real-time video is wirelessly streamed to her students’ iPad. And voila! Now each child can get a close-up view of the fine details. The need to hover over the teacher’s shoulder is over. Check out the full video:
And how about Mrs. Allain’s class in Schenectady, NY? Here’s what she had to say about her use of iZiggi-HD:
“We can share the same visual experience from any seat in the classroom and it has made the learning accessible to all of the students. The kids have responded so well to the use of the camera for reading stories and viewing illustrations, examining art work, and observing demonstrations while drawing, painting, and sculpting.”
Meanwhile, Mrs. Rondeau in Altoona, IA has found that iZiggi-HD can help make art lessons more accessible to students with vision limitations:
“I have several students with vision limitations that make it difficult for them to look back & forth between their work and the big screen. While still projecting the image for the whole class, I can connect iPads to the iZiggi’s WiFi and those students can see the same thing much closer to their eyes.”
Mrs. Piety in Saint Paul, MN emphasizes the way iZiggi-HD has enhanced group collaboration and activities:
“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.”
BONUS: Music Class! Who said all art was visual? In the case of this Fargo, ND band teacher, students’ music has been made visual by projecting musical scores. He had this to say:
“It has changed my teaching! Students now see visually what I am trying to tell them. They see it in context and it is amazing to see everyone in the band improve their own playing based on the feedback given to others.”
