It goes to show how far (and how fast) we have come - I clearly remember the amazement of people in 2002 as I turned the camera around to show them the picture I had just taken... even more amazement when they saw and heard a video of themselves! Now I don't think many children in secondary school can remember a world without digital cameras.
Digital cameras are an underutilised device in science classrooms, use them for
- taking photos of experimental set ups
- excursion reports
- constructing a taxonomy
- constructing a food chain
- creating a virtual tour of your science facilities
- a digital photography science competition.

I am going to test out the geotag feature on my recent road trip along the Great Ocean Road.
