  • 3. What is Elmo?
    • A document camera that's all about sharing, comprehension and student retention
    • Ability to connect to computer, video monitor, or projector
    • Ability to capture live images smoothly displaying moving objects in real time
  • 4. These School Days, The Teachers Have The Best Toys.
    • Marilyn Brown relates the new technology, like Elmo’s, as being nothing extraordinary to students attending school.
    • She goes on to say that even though the emerging technology may look foreign to some adults it is just more of an extension of the students.
    • She also mentions that the prices of Elmo’s are becoming somewhat affordable. (2008)
  • 5. These School Days, The Teachers Have The Best Toys.
    • Elmo devices have been around for about a decade.
    • Anything flat or nearly flat can be used in presenting an image to a classroom,
    • Brown includes that a frog being dissected could even be placed under an Elmo and shown to a classroom.
      • Allowing the students that do not wish to physically touch a frog, to see what is happening without the actual frog being in his or her presence. (2008)
  • 6. These School Days, The Teachers Have The Best Toys.
    • Reflection
    • Using an Elmo for the dissection of a frog really put the device in perspective.
      • This is a great use of an Elmo, not for reading or writing but to show a class how to dissect without walking around. It really does take teaching to a presentation level that connects with different types of learners.
    • The affordability of Elmo’s are very reasonable for most school districts
    • I believe that students now do not view hardly anything as great technology.
      • Most are used to having at least one computer at home, a cell phone, or some sort of newer technology as every day life.
  • 7. Elmo Tickles Student Writers: Using Technology to Encourage Writing
    • Pat Harder used her Elmo to help a class of 7th grade writers become comfortable in revisions.
    • She allowed students, on a voluntary basis, to present papers written on an Elmo.
      • This not only allowed the class to hear what the paper said, but to also see what was being written.
    • One student presented her revised paper, showing the revised areas suggested by her classmates by highlighting the areas.
      • She then asked for assistance with the conclusion, which was only possible because the students could visually instruct her on what should be done.
    • Harder connects an Elmo to being similar to an overhead projector.
      • She says that this will help with any transition, because of the set-up being similar to what teachers are familiar with. (Harder, 2006)
  • 8. Elmo Tickles Student Writers: Using Technology to Encourage Writing
    • Harder also points out that having an Elmo for use in a classroom eliminates the need to run to the copy machine throughout the school day.
      • This is because any book, worksheet, or map needed to be viewed can be placed under the Elmo for the classroom to view.
    • She also mentioned using the Elmo outside of the classroom was beneficial, using it with a group of board members. (2006)
  • 9. Elmo Tickles Student Writers: Using Technology to Encourage Writing
    • Reflection
    • I believe having the student use an Elmo to help correct each other is a great use of the technology.
      • Having the students show work helps the student using the Elmo, but it also lets other students se possible mistakes in his or her own work.
    • I feel it not only helps the students academically, but it also gives them the opportunity to branch out and establish more self-confidence.
  • 10. Ohio Teacher Brings Teaching, Learning to Life With the Addition of a Visual Presenter
    • Allows Mercer to read books to the entire class, even when there are not enough copies. (Unknown, 2004)
    • Mercer says, “…It helps all students, including visual learner, to see concepts more clearly, literally and figuratively…” (2004)
    • Elmo allows once too small in size resources to be seen by the entire class. (2004)
  • 11. Ohio Teacher Brings Teaching, Learning to Life With the Addition of a Visual Presenter
    • Allows non-English speaking students to see words in print, instead of guessing how it is to be spelled. (2004)
    • Can be used to present visual aids for classroom speeches.
      • Which eliminates having to posses several copies for classroom to see or passing around pictures for everyone to see close up. (2004)
    • “ According to Mercer, “The presenter is very useful in clarifying verbal lessons with visual images and enhancing the written word.”” (2004)
    • Mercer has the ability to show images in both black-and-white and color on a large screen or monitors in a classroom. (2004)
    • Easy to operate from anywhere in the classroom because of the remote.(2004)
  • 12. Ohio Teacher Brings Teaching, Learning to Life With the Addition of a Visual Presenter
    • Reflection
    • I feel the Elmo presenters have a great and positive impact on classrooms.
    • Having an Elmo to show visual aides to a presentation would expedite the process, because of the eliminated passing of all the aids.
      • This would also help keep fragile aids from being damaged.
    • Gearing education towards every learner is never a downfall, so using an Elmo captures the visual learners is a great asset.
  • 13. Conclusion
    • Having an Elmo in the classroom not only helps the student achieve more academically, but it can also provide the interaction needed to improve upon social skills and self-confidence.
    • The affordability of an Elmo has become reasonable, so that more schools can afford to purchase and place the equipment in classrooms.
    • The use of an Elmo ranges from reading a book so that students can follow along, editing papers for students to visualize, dissecting small animals for students see, presenting aids to compliment presentations, and of course everyday lessons that involve nearly any type of visual teaching.
    • The key component in Elmo is “visual.”
      • It teaches to more than the auditory learners, it captures the visual learners and stimulates the desire to learn.
