GradeCam

GradeCam is a cool tool that I learned about on Twitter from @jill_lebiedzins. This site offers educators the option to use a document camera as a means to grade and record assignments. GradeCam also offers the following options: Grades are automatically entered into your gradebook (Skyward, etc.), Share your assessments with other educators and get reports in real-time, Give students immediate feedback as they scan their own assessment, Create and print answer forms, and Link your questions to state standards and generate standards based reports.

You may be wondering if your camera is compatible. GradeCam has a page that lists all compatible cameras. Many are listed, so the chance is pretty good that yours is available. Additionally, GradeCam has a page with a help forum and printable documents to get you started.

If you are a teacher who uses a doc cam on a daily basis, GradeCam is probably for you.
