    Abstract

    In a primary science lecture with 100 students and one lecturer, how many cameras are there? The answer is at least 202, on the grounds that almost everyone will have a smartphone or tablet with two cameras and some people will have more than one device. The big question is, how can we utilise this plethora of cameras to learn to teach science? This article discusses the use made of cameras by a lecturer and students to enhance learning in primary science classrooms.
