Ridgefield Park, New Jersey (June 4, 2013) – Samsung Techwin America’s Electronic Imaging Division (samsungpresenterusa.com), a market leader in document camera technology, today announced the 10 teachers who have won a SAMCAM 760 document camera as part of the Samsung Techwin grant program. Teachers were asked to write a fun lesson plan, in 100 words or less, using the SAMCAM 760. The top 20 finalists were then asked to submit a video showing their lesson plan in the classroom with the Samsung document camera. “We received many fantastic entries and were very impressed with the creativity and diversity of the teachers’ uses of the document camera,” said Richard Bellomy, V.P. of Sales for the Electronic Imaging Division. “Everything from a bloodstain lab lesson for forensic analysis and how to calculate the volume of a cylinder, to showing native and invasive plants for classroom discussion and being able to look at the details of arrowheads for an archeological lesson. I would highly recommend taking a look at the winning videos yourself at samsunggrants.com.”
“We started the grant program to help schools upgrade their technology tools to create a more visually stimulating learning environment to engage students and to improve their ability to learn,” said Bellomy. “I want to thank everyone for their submissions and again illustrating the value of the SAMCAM 760 within the classroom.”
