The IPEVO document camera is powerful and affordable (69.99 USD). It works just as well as many more expensive models and is a quick and easy way  I project smaller objects to the entire class. I used it to teach a room of 400 people how to fold paper cranes with no problem. The image is clear, and the auto-focus works perfectly.

Animoto for Educators offers a free, full-access account to teachers and 50 students. These    accounts do have a shelf life of about six months, but I have been able to renew every time without a problem. I believe in this product so much that I do purchase a yearly personal subscription (around 60.00 USD) just to support the company. There is no difference in the personal or education accounts I use.
