Free trial, training program offered for classroom tech

ELMO USA Corporation announces its new "ELMO Infinity" program, which provides K-12 school teachers and district administrators with a 30-day free trial and training period of a bundle of ELMO 21st Century education technologies. The ELMO Infinity program began February 1, 2011 and continues until all allocated trial units are circulated.

A limited number of ELMO Infinity bundled systems are inclusive with the document camera TT-02RX, and the latest ELMO CRA-1 wireless tablet. These products provide a complete plug and play system for teachers wanting to visually enhance learning experiences in a way that is engaging and will boost student interest, comprehension, and retention.

“It is ELMO’s mission and responsibility to offer all educators the most effective educational technologies and solutions,” said Matt Takekoshi, President of ELMO USA. “Our new Infinity program allocates a substantial number of trial packages, which also includes ELMO training, to make sure participants are confident to successfully operate and implement these amazing teaching tools in their classrooms.”

ELMO’s TT-02RX is a fourth generation model representing the exceptionally popular “Teacher’s Tool” line of document cameras. The TT-02RX features a 1.39 Mega Pixel CMOS chip that captures and displays full-motion video at 30 frames per second. It also offers the choice of XGA, SXGA or WXGA outputs by merely flipping a switch. Teachers and students will appreciate the TT-02RX’s enhanced 5.2x optical zoom. This, along with 8x digital zoom, renders crisp, clear images up to 41.6x of magnification.

ELMO’s CRA-1 Wireless Tablet provides teachers and students with a “hand-held, hands-on” platform to learn and create in the digital medium. Teachers and students can utilize the CRA-1 Wireless Tablet to collectively draw, annotate, manipulate images, and interact with multi-media resources and applications from all areas of the classroom (with a working range of approximately 50 feet). When fully charged, the Wireless Tablet provides approximately 16 hours of continuous operation time.
