Visualizers can help us view the world in a clearer way
Technological learning is continually developing and feedback has been positive on how pupils are reacting to the changes and different possibilities education can now have. Visualizers have been around the audio-visual market for a while now; however their uses and flexibility mean they are becoming more popular, particularly in the education sector. Elmo are a prime example of a company who managing to find ever angle of their visualizers. Their latest models have virtually limitless camera positions and a powerful zoom which can enlarge an image up to 96 times!
For those of you who have not been able to take advantage of this product, visualizers are similar to the traditional over-head projector, however their digital advances mean they can not only give a much clearer picture, but can also be view by a much larger audience, through video conferencing or connected screens around a building. The interactivity benefits the learning environment due to the fact you can annotate the live images, use the visualizer wirelessly and engage with either a whole class or individual pupils via a tablet. With Elmo their latest presentation tools add to the teacher’s powers with highlighting, masking answers to questions or being able to record audio of the images, perhaps for a repeated class.
Despite all this, the visualizer’s capabilities are not restricted to the classroom. Many businesses have found them useful as an alternative to interactive whiteboards, as they can still annotate and present live multimedia. Some companies in the retail industry have found the visualizers particularly helpful when discussing upcoming products with overseas offices or clients. The visualizer means the said product can be placed underneath and fully inspected live, rather than just as an image saved in an email. It can also been shown when discussing faults and saves on transport both financially and environmentally.
