Manchester Center, VT- April 7, 2011- Digital Wish will contribute $100 towards each ELMO product purchased for the classroom at www.digitalwish.org.
Schools and classroom supporters alike can now stretch their funding
dollars further to make their favorite educator’s technology wishes come
true. The TT-02RX document camera is available as a stand alone item,
or included in a choice of two bundles.
“The ELMO document camera has been one of the most requested classroom tools
on Digital Wish,” said Heather Chirtea, Executive Director and Founder
of Digital Wish, “We’re ecstatic that we can provide a $100 matching
grant program on top of an already low price in these tough economic times.”
Two bundles and the stand alone document camera will each qualify for the
$100 matching grant program. One bundle brings together the powerful,
but portable CRP-221 projector along with the document camera. The
other bundle includes the document camera and the award winning CRA-1
tablet, which allows the teacher to wirelessly control the document
camera from up to 50 feet away. This tablet was a winner in the 28th
Annual “Awards of Excellence” by Tech & Learning magazine.
The ELMO TT-02RX is the most popular document camera in America. It boasts
over 40X total zoom with auto or manual focus, which is perfect for
zooming-in on small text or complex math problems. The large display
area can capture documents and objects as big as 11” x 17”. An internal
1.3 megapixel chip allows smooth capture of moving objects at a steady
30 frames-per-second motion clip. In addition, the document camera can
be controlled from up to 23 feet away with the remote control which is
included in the box. With both SD and USB ports, snapshots of student
work or lessons can be easily captured and exported to another device.
The Image Mate software comes with each purchase and allows the user to
annotate and mark up the projected materials from their computer.
“We help teachers at Digital Wish,” said Chirtea, “By making the ELMO
Teacher’s Tool document camera available with an additional matching
grant, we hope educators around the country will see their ultimate wish
come true either from district technology funding or engaged community
