On Wednesday, March 11 at Chestnut Grove, more than 25 kindergarten teachers attended a workshop led by Woodglen kindergarten teacher Wendy Ansons and technology learning facilitator John Calvert. These teachers gathered to learn how to use a document camera in conjunction with the SMART board that is installed in all kindergarten classrooms. As part of the workshop, teachers learned how to use the document camera to enhance writer’s workshop, magnify small objects to larger than life sizes, and quickly scan in materials. After a hands-on session in learning how this hardware works and exploring its use in the kindergarten classroom, all attending teachers received a SMART document camera for their classroom.
