Web Cams

Each student tablet is equipped with a web cam. This equipment offers students an extraordinary opportunity to experience a 21st Century tool and to develop 21st Century communication skills.

Web cams are to be used for educational purposes only, under the direction of a teacher.

Examples include:
• Recording videos or taking pictures to include in a project
• Recording a student giving a speech and playing it back for rehearsal and improvement.
Please note that installing Internet calling/video-conferencing software (i.e. Skype) is prohibited on district tablets. Software for using the web cam is already installed on the district provided tablet.
