Hi Beverly,

I recently read this article (https://ww2.kqed.org/mindshift/2016/10/11/how-can-teachers-help-students-see-themselves-in-the-curriculum/) about a teacher who used a Go Pro camera to identify one student as the "Hero of the Day." That person's job was to check in with all students to check in with them and see how they could support. The teacher noted how so much more happened than she was ever aware of as the teacher, supporting a bunch of students throughout the day. 

I wonder how you could imagine the camera being used in your classroom? What need or problem do you think the use of a camera might address?
