LOS ANGELES, Oct. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- It is time to say thanks to our amazing teachers. TutorCam inventor Brandon Kennington has announced a major giveaway to honor teachers for their dedication in virtual classrooms during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Brandon is giving free TutorCam Go devices to 100 teachers in an event dubbed: One Hundred Heroes.
Tell us about a teacher who could benefit from a free TutorCam Go.
Brandon, a dad and mechanical engineer, invented the TutorCam (www.tutorcampro.com) after helping teach a math class over Google Meet at his kids' Los Angeles elementary school in the early days of the pandemic in March. He saw a need for an easy-to-use document camera to supplement remote learning classes.
"Teachers are superheroes," Brandon, a Purdue University graduate, said.
"The pandemic quickly shut schools and teachers had to respond instantly, with many facing technological issues and often paying for equipment out of their own pocket to ensure they connect with their students.
"Teachers are amazing, and I want to show my gratitude by giving away 100 TutorCams to teachers who really need them."
TutorCams were an instant sensation when they hit the market in August. NBC's Today Show declared them a "must-have" in a segment hosted by style expert Jenn Falik.
Teachers and students usually can only see each other's faces during remote learning. TutorCams have a special optical lens to focus on documents, workbooks etc. on their desk by using a mobile phone or tablet camera.
TutorCams do not need an app or additional software. TutorCams work with Zoom, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, Skype and other video conferencing platforms.
The One Hundred Heroes giveaway begins October 13 and ends October 27.
