"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."

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.

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.

"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 supporters."

Make your classroom lessons an event with the ELMO Teacher's Tool document camera.  Teachers can add ELMO products to their wish list and supporters can grant their wishes at
