Elmo is a presentation device that enables you to project anything you put in its camera’s view onto a smart board. Similar to what the old-fashioned overhead projectors used to do, but this is live, in color, and not restricted to 2-d paper or objects. I used Elmo to project a T-chart for a science unit up on the screen so students could see what they needed to do to complete their lesson. This is a great little gadget and is very easy to use all you have to do is turn it on and place a book or an object underneath it’s little eye and then view it on the screen. You can then use the pens provided with the smart board to add any comments to the picture or chart a great learning tool.
