TabCam

Inspire and engage your digital natives

Your students are enveloped with tablets, cell phones and laptops in their everyday lives, innately comfortable with digital communication and mobile anytime, anywhere information access.
Integrating these devices into their curriculum enhances their ability to relate, respond and engage with classroom material and lesson content. Adding real-life, real-time content to these devices further enhance lesson concepts by relating content to actual curriculum.

TabCam enhances mobile, digital curriculum

As a wireless streaming camera, TabCam captures and broadcasts live, physical classroom content to your iPad, Android Tablet or PC/MAC Laptop in real-time. It also keeps your mobile device mobile, able to move anywhere in the room without having to be near it. The tablet app and software package then takes that real content and enables students to fully interact and engage with the content in a way that is both familiar and captivating to them.

Present and create rich, full lessons

Present live video of anything, from anywhere in your room, while annotating, highlighting and manipulating the content from your tablet or laptop without being tethered to the camera. Present student or group work from one end of the room while interacting with the content for another group elsewhere. Add supporting content such as images or video from other sources to strengthen the lesson, include alternative solutions, and more.

Don’t forget it, record it!

The rich lessons you create with TabCam do not have to be forgotten. TabCam will record your entire lesson to be available for review, absent students, substitute teachers and more. All of your live video, audio, annotation, highlights, and supporting content are captured and saved even as you move from element to element.

Blended, Flipped and Common Core

TabCam not only digitizes content for Blended learning, but can instantly share recorded lessons to DropBox, YouTube, Facebook, even your classroom management site to support Flipped concepts. Furthermore, interdisciplinary curriculum can be created, recorded and shared between subjects to support Common Core initiatives.

TabCam – Brings it All Together

TabCam combines the best in live video mobility with a simple, yet intuitive app for tablets and software for PC/MAC to create rich, meaningful and engaging curriculum for your iPad and Android Tablets, or laptop.

Live Video Stream

The wireless TabCam can be set virtually anywhere in the classroom since it communicates with your device over your school’s wireless network. Set the camera over a science experiment, or on a student’s desk to present the live content while facilitating the curriculum from anywhere else in the room over your device.

Present and annotate over live video

As TabCam streams video to your device, you can add notes, digital ink, highlights and objects directly over the live content. Point out the organs of a dissected frog, highlight grammatical examples from student work, call out artistic designs….all without having to stop, capture an image and move it into an editing app. Easily move from each lesson element while annotating and manipulating at the same time.

The Digital Whiteboard is your Canvas

The Digital Whiteboard is your canvas to pull all the pieces of your lesson into one area. Add an instructional video, include captured images or saved diagrams, even images captured from your TabCam all to your whiteboard canvas. Then, add your notes, highlights and objects to enrich the entire lesson.
