Back to School

Summer’s about over, and that means school’s ready to begin. If you’re a parent or a teacher, you probably have lots of items on your back-to-school list, and we’d like to remind you that IPEVO has a choice selection of highly useful, highly affordable tech products and accessories that will help start the year off right. Here are some of the highlights:

Save hundreds of dollars — literally
Before you buy that $600 document camera or $1000 interactive whiteboard on another website, check out our home page and see if you can accomplish most or all of the same things at just a fraction of the price. We know money can be tight this time of year, and IPEVO is all about stretching your dollar and making your school budget work harder.

New items, just in time for school!
We have three new products slated for September release that we’re excited to share. The IS-01 Interactive Whiteboard System turns any screen or blank wall into an interactive whiteboard.

The VZ-1 HD VGA/USB Dual-Mode Document Camera continues the IPEVO doc cam tradition of sharing documents quickly and easily, and comes with the ability to directly connect to your VGA projector.

And the Height Extension Stand for Ziggi-HD gives the Ziggi doc cam a height boost so you can capture larger documents easier than ever before. Please, check them out! We know you’ll find multiple uses for each of them in your classroom.

Point 2 View is the king of back to school
One particularly hot seller continues to be our iconic Point 2 View USB Document Camera. There are literally hundreds of uses for this document camera in the classroom, and that’s not an exaggeration. Several accessories have been developed around the Point 2 View for even more versatility.

Using a microscope in science class is a classic. But with schools tightening their belts when it comes to budgets, a pricey item like a microscope might be in short supply. So the question becomes: how do you give an entire class the microscope experience when there might be only a handful (or even just one!) to go around? IPEVO has a couple of affordable items for science educators faced with this challenge. It starts with the Point 2 View USB Document Camera and Microscope Adapter Set. For around $90, you can attach a camera directly to a wide range of microscopes — including straight and angled eyepieces — and capture real-time video of what a viewer looking through the eyepiece would see.

What you do with that video is up to you. You can send it to a computer for projection, but if your school has iPads and all the learning potential that comes with them, we suggest one final item: the WS-01 Wireless Station for iPad. What the Wireless Station can do is send the Point 2 View’s video to not just one but multiple iPads. And — you guessed it — it does this wirelessly. So, if you as the teacher are demonstrating with a microscope at the front of the class, with this setup you can wirelessly stream the microscope video in real time to iPads throughout the class. Students will benefit from an up-close, crystal-clear image as you give your lesson.

And just when you thought we couldn’t pack any more innovation into this setup, it gets better. With the free IPEVO Whiteboard app for iPad, students as well as the teacher can make notes and draw on the microscope image, and can then save these “whiteboards” for later.

This entire setup costs only about $160. How’s that for innovation on a budget?! Compare that to some iPad microscope setups out there costing around $600. And when you figure that the Point 2 View can do a whole lot more than capture a microscope image (check out our Top 50 Ways to use Document Cameras for just a taste), and the choice is pretty easy for budget-conscious educators. Science teachers: how would you use the WS-01 and Point 2 View setup? Let us know!
