Whether used for enhancing views of a science experiment, closing in on details of a map, or explaining the anatomy of a live plant, these devices can help make teaching and learning more dynamic. Most of them can be connected to microscopes so that even the tiniest of specimens can be displayed, and they also come with software tools that allow for annotation, creation of time-lapse videos, and more.
