BHS TV: Additional camera equipment to allow students greater flexibility when filming.
Barrington Middle School Interactive Document Cameras: Interactive cameras, together with existing classroom Smart Boards, can visually and actively engage students in a large group setting. The interactive camera can project and record any image for all to see clearly. For example, teachers can focus the interactive camera on any document, such as a page of literature, and visually demonstrate how to actively notate the text. The teacher’s notations are projected onto the Smart Board in real time so that all students may easily view the work.
Elementary Art Portfolio Cameras: Digital cameras provide the ability to incorporate photography as another vehicle of expression within the art program at all elementary schools.
