No Document Camera? No Problem!

Use your smartphone or tablet as your document camera. Take pictures of documents or students' work and then use software to integrate it onto computer/projector. While many different types of software exists- here are some suggestions!
  1. CamScanner: Install the app on your device, tap a few buttons to adjust, and then the file shows up on the web- ready to share. The software also converts it into pdfs and allows for collaborators.
  2. Use your phone's auto-upload software (the cloud, google drive) and photos you take will display as pictures on your screen.
  3. Other similar functioning apps/ online storage: Evernote, DropBox, etc.
  4. iOS app- JotNot. Use your phone to capture and then upload them to a variety of sources- organize and then edit them.
