I am a second grade Special Education teacher in an inclusion co-teaching classroom in a New York City public school. Our neighborhood is extremely diverse and there is no dominant language, yet most of my students do not speak English. None of my students’ parents speak English.
I had heard of HUE online through Google searches and following teachers on Instagram that uses HUE products. After installing the HUE HD camera’s HUE Intuition software, I am obsessed! It is so easy to use, store, and teach my students and colleagues to use!
I utilize it numerous times a day! Every day I read a book out loud to my students and I display the text to them. They are able to read along with me, see the illustrations. We utilize this as a tool to demonstrate finding evidence and referencing the text in our discussions. Then, during math, I utilize the HUE Pro HD camera to show students how I utilize math manipulatives to solve an equation so they can model my thinking and actions in their own work. After school, I often lead parent workshops to help the parents support their children at home. I demonstrate to the parents the appropriate use of classroom tools, materials, and activities. The parents can easily see what I am doing, even if their grasp of the English language isn’t as strong.
I would (and constantly do) recommend the HUE Pro HD camera or a related item to other teachers. It packs quite a bit of educational value into such a compact, agile, and exciting tool.
Setting up this product was extremely easy and took me around five minutes.
