What is it
The award-winning HUE HD Pro camera has been bundled with HUE Animation software to create a multi-purpose home-schooling kit which is ideal for online tutoring, Skype calls, recording a lesson for playback later or making an animation to illustrate a specific subject.
Designed specifically for teaching, the HUE HD Pro document camera is a versatile, plug and play camera. It’s flexible and powerful, yet simple to use. The Pro is the perfect sharing resource for teaching children at home and can be used across the whole curriculum.
Suitable for both independent and cooperative homeschooling, it allows you to build in opportunities for collaboration and interactive work and can also help with scanning documents for record keeping and creating homeschool portfolios.
It is particularly helpful for children with special needs, offering the ability to enlarge text and objects and record lessons for later revision.
Here are some free Activity Guides which teachers and parents can download at no cost which guide them through the process of creating an animation to learn about various topics such as The Water Cycle, Cycle of Seasons and Global Warming. Hue will be adding further activity guides during the coming months too so they will build up to be a really useful set of guides.

What our experts think
The HUE camera and animation bundle was hugely popular, encouraging our testers to engage with their work on a screen as well as experiment with animation. The children used the camera as both a visualiser to show smaller objects and also to look at a hard copy of their work on the screen. One teacher was able to show a piece of writing that a group of children had done, and edit/annotate it as a class on the interactive whiteboard – our testers loved being able to see the work clearly on the screen.
The children also used the camera for animation and loved the flexibility of it, as they could angle it to pick up their characters and animations easily. The software included was intuitive and very easy to use, especially the voice recording and editing elements, meaning the children needed limited support. It has been a great addition to the classroom and homeschooling environment!
