I concur with the others who hav ementioned multimedia type equipment. Webcam, microphone, mp3 player, digital voice recorder...or how about a subscription to one of the great web 2.0 type sites that offer better features on the paid side (Voicethread.com, Animoto.com, Gabcast.com, Gcast.com, Vimeo.com, etc...).
I probably should've been more specific in my question. Our campus has around 1000 students, and every grade level from grade 3 and above the teacher has a laptop, document camera, interwrite school pad, and lcd projector. Last year they all received a digital camera, sd card, and card reader. This year we have purchased a few flip cameras. Several teachers that use video alot have external hard drives. I recommended a few more flip cameras or better digital cameras, but it was over the money limit. She wanted to spend around $50 and I was at a loss of what to recommend. I try to let my teachers know they are so fortunate with all the technology that is available to them and I'm not for sure we always make the best use of it. I love all of the ideas that are coming in though. Thanks so much.
I should make a comprehensive list of everything they have. We also purchased headphone/microphone sets for all. The media center and special education teachers have mp3 for audiobooks. We also purchased video ipods for department levels in the high school.
Makes more sense now. You might provide wireless presentation devices/mouse so that they can move around the room while still giving presentations or using their cimputers. Targus makes some good ones that we have used at my school.
can't think of much else not already mentioned....

Too many people do not have a clear idea about what is a Scooter; and much less than there is a sport based on it. Besides, it is a sport that has evolved a lot from its beginning, but if you do not know too much about the sport is hard to see it as more than a kid game.However, this sport is more than just kids and young people making scooter tricks in a square; scootering is a kind of culture and a lifestyle that has more than 20 years growing to become what it is today.For this reason, we…See More
