3.5 : Sourcing and Introducing Cameras
Children taking photos in the classroom does not need to mean handing over the iPad, your smartphone, or the camera that you use to take classroom photos. You can integrate that all together, of course. You'll learn what to look for in your camera: not just any camera will have the most convenient features. I'm also sharing a few easy ways to obtain a free or very low-cost camera for your classroom.
Not everyone wants or needs a separate camera - don’t think of this as a necessity. If it is keeping you from adding photography to the classroom, use whatever you think is appropriate and within your budget: a smartphone, an iPad - and there is something a bit fun about having adult and kid photos all mixed together.
