Using your iPad as a document camera
I did my second Periscope today about using your iPad as a document camera. My ELMO (visual presenter) died a few years ago and I wanted to use something to replace it that didn’t have cords attached to it and that was so easy the kiddos could use it too!
I started looking for solutions and found a stand made out of lightweight PVC pipe. I showed the directions to my husband and by the next afternoon, I (along with 10 other people) had new iPad stands. 🙂 He started taking custom orders for other teachers in my school and in my township.
Here is the link to my Periscope explaining how I use it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZwrXQ0yp2s
Sorry about the wobbly camera! It was hard to put the iPad in with one hand and without dropping it! 🙂
I will tell you that I had my husband make me a new center pole for the stand this summer because the camera angle wasn’t wide enough to fit an entire 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper under it. If you decide to build it, I would extend the center pole that gives the iPad height by 4-6 inches. That has helped a lot already!

Its SUPER EASY to build and cost us under $15 to build. 🙂
