then beggars would etc. etc...

I've been thinking about grants. I would love to have a camera and video set up for my classroom. I wonder how I can get one.

Hi Jennie,

The World Mind Network would be glad to provide your classroom with a webcam for free. It is usually a Logitech SLX with full color, sound, and 30 frames per second.
The only 'requirement', and it isn't really a requirement, is that you upload your feed to the site. If you want a more expensive camera and video, they may provide it if you can design a project for your students which helps to increase public awareness of world poverty, Climate Change, or sustainable enterprises.
Contact me if you want to know more.

Hello Jennie,

I was alerted to your desire for a camera by Bob Stimson.

We can give you a Logitech SLX webcam, and also a Sony DCR-DVD 108 Handycam Camcorder. We have tested many video cameras, and we like this Sony because it is light, full-featured, has excellent sound and video, and seems to be pretty durable. The only drawback is that the Sony customer service is less than stellar, but we solve that by buying through Amazon, which is not only cheaper, but provides excellent customer service! (go figure).
This camera also has 2 features not found on most models of this type. It has an excellent low-light infra-red setting (maybe your students could make infra-red heat signature videos of the remaining embers of the San Diego fires?) and it has a digital zoom with a ridiculously long length of 2000:1! This means you can zoom into the fine print of a book from 50 feet away! (This feature is probably more useful for teachers than for regular folks at home).
This camera also records onto DVDs, which is convenient, and allows you to edit video on your computer, if you get the accompanying Sony software.
This means you and your students can share your results with all of us here at Classroom 2.0!

Let us know what you think.

Hi Jennie,

Haven't heard from you in a while. Do you still want the camera?
