The image quality in the Luna Interactive Projection Camera is BETTER than any projection camera I've ever used. Even with half of the lights off in my classroom, the image was still clear. I love the fact that it has a USB direct plug for connecting and charging. The best feature is the video camera. Teachers can record lessons and save them to their web page for absent students. It would also be perfect for classroom Skyping. With the click of a button you can take a snapshot of student's work. It's flexible and light weight, and I wouldn't be afraid to let students use it.
A few uses:
1 Video Time Capsule:
At the beginning of the year have students record a message to their future self. Or at the end of the year have students record a message to the new students entering your classroom next year.
2 Record Lessons for Absent Students
3 Take a Picture of Student's Work:
With the click of a button you can take a snapshot of student's work. How perfect would this be for bulky items like dioramas?
4 Assessment:
Document student's learning and share files with specialists and parents.
5 Oral Presentations:
Let students record themselves giving a presentation. Kids love to be the star of the show, and you could show the videos at Open House.
I really enjoyed reviewing this product for Learning Resources!

It is very easy to install on your computer, which is great. However, it's positive aspects end there. There is no zoom feature, so you must use the bendable neck to position the camera. However, the base of the Luna is so small and light that when you position the camera close enough to a text to be readable, it falls over and will not stand on it's own. Because of the lack of a zooming feature, one cannot use it to read text unless the camera is hovering less than an inch away from the text. The focus button appears to make no difference in the image. The only thing it might be useful for is the task pictured on the website, tangrams or other large manipulatives that would not require zooming in.

            Comments about Learning Resources Easi-Speak USB Recorder - Blue:

            I love the camera, but when I tried to make a video, it records upside down. I have tried every possible sequence of steps using the rotate button but no luck. I am very disappointed. :-(

              My Luna doc camera is the best addition to my classroom in years. As an English teacher, I teach a lot of high-level texts. As we read, I can project my notes for students to copy. We also do a lot of writing, and I can easily project samples of writing the whole class can see, which eliminates the need to make copies for every student. I use it every day in almost every class I teach. I don't know how I lived without it for so long!

              Great classroom tool to build fluency

                Comments about Learning Resources Easi-Speak USB Recorder - Blue:

                I received the Easi Speak USB Recorder to use and review in my second grade class room. I have to say that both I and my students were impressed! I love that it's so easy to use....one button to record...one button to play. My students can use it independently with just a little bit of training. There are no batteries required, since it charges on the USB port. One of the coolest uses is the ability to 'collect' students' reading, upload to your computer & then share with parents or other teachers. One (of the many) ways I am using it is to track student reading progress. It's been amazing & powerful for the kids to be able to listen to what they DID sound like compared to how they sound NOW.

                Bottom line....this product is a fabulous little motivator! Even my most reluctant reader is eager to read when he gets to use the Easi Speak! It's a terrific addition to your classroom!

                  • Reading Conferences
                  • Small Group Instruction

                  Comments about Learning Resources Easi-Speak USB Recorder - Blue:

                  Each week I let my students record themselves re-reading a familiar book from a previous reading conference. Then I'd go back and listen in order to plan teaching point for our next conference. Sometimes I'll record them after a quick book introduction and let them have a first read as I complete a running record.

                  We are also using this to record our Reader's Theatre scripts during small group. We practice our scripts for a few minutes towards the end of small group time, and the students usually present on Fridays. They love using it.

                    Comments about Learning Resources Easi-Speak USB Recorder - Blue:

                    We love this adorable microphone! We use it in individual speech therapy sessions to motivate kids to string more sentences together and to send the results to parents. We love the high quality recordings and ease of use when recording speech-language evaluations. And we LOVE using this microphone in our Social Adventures groups to motivate kids to express emotions more dramatically. In fact, we wrote a whole blog about using the Easi-Speak with groups, you can read it over at all4mychild.com/blog.

                    Disclaimer: we were given this recorder as a gift with the express purpose of writing a review.

                          We used it during our guided reading time. I had my students practice reading the page chorally with me, and then we had one out loud reader record themselves into the microphone. Talk about a whole new spin to radio reading! My students loved reading into the microphone and it was great to be able to play it back right away so that they could hear themselves speak. Seriously, every teacher needs this!!!
