How to Use Your LG 360 Camera

My students have been using an LG R-105 360 camera for photos and videos this school year. While they are still in the experimental phases with it trying out different things, it’s one of their favorite tools in the room to play with. The demand has actually been so high I decided to create three short videos to help them as they used the camera.

If your staff has the same camera, feel free to use and share the videos. Alternatively, you can also use the videos I created as a guide to create your own for your specific model of camera or classroom situation.

I’ve recently gotten into flipping some of my journalism classroom. I’ve worked to take some of the direct instruction out of my daily classes and turn that instruction into short videos for students to watch outside of class. The benefits to date have been great. I’ve had more hands-on time with students in class and students are able to rewatch things they need more help with — something that isn’t possible with direct instruction in class. I actually talked earlier this week on Facebook about what I’ve been doing with this. If you’ve missed my recent Facebook Live posts on Mondays, you can check out the archives here. The week I’m referencing here is Week 6.

As for 360 cameras, I’ve talked about them a few times the past four¬†months on this site. Go ahead and check out some of the other posts here:
