HoverCam and the Flipped Classroom


SAN DIEGO, May 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pathway Innovations and Technologies, Inc. advances the "flipped classroom" with HD HoverCam document cameras. The flipped classroom is heavily reliant on technology. Whether it is video lectures or other computer programming, technology is at the forefront of any flipped classroom. Teachers must be familiar with video editing and other online teaching formats to ensure that the video-lecture experience is useful and rewarding for the students. Students must become acclimated to the new, nontraditional format that could be completely new to them.

Some of the benefits of the flipped classroom's use of technology are 1) more one-on-one time between teachers and students in the online medium; 2) stronger student-teacher relationships; 3) easy access to sharing information with other students, teachers, faculty members, parents and the like; 4) students have the ability to review, slow-down, and rewind lectures; and 5) the learning environment becomes more collaborative and less lecture-based.

Teachers can use a HoverCam to do stand-up lectures or chalkboard or share a document. Teachers have the ability to record screen when using a PowerPoint presentation. The HoverCam also uploads to various Cloud services such as Evernote, DropBox, and YouTube for file-sharing.

HoverCam offers industry-leading document cameras for use inside a classroom. During a lecture, it is important to not only talk through examples, but also it is important to be able to show off the steps that go into solving a problem. A HoverCam document camera provides HD quality images that allow a teacher to personalize any lecture. A HoverCam will enhance any classroom and especially an online-learning environment and the flipped classroom.
