Using ManyCam with DaDaABC
Having multiple classes in row where you must think up games and songs to keep the student engaged can take its toll. With ManyCam you can project a video or image to the student through DaDaABC's teaching software.
You can display a sing-a-long YouTube video, or animal counting game whilst still remaining present on the screen!
