ELMO Case Studies

St Philomena's Roman Catholic Primary School, UK

The lesson objective: To identify the various stages in the lifecycle of a frog. To use technology to enhance learning visualiser and digital camera

How the visualiser was used: The small fish tank containing the tadpoles was placed under the Visualiser, and the arm of Visualiser was bent over and turned towards the corner of the tank. The appearance of the tadpoles were highlighted and compared to how they looked before half term. The zoom button on the Visualiser was used to try to allow the children to see the froglet which had developed front and rear legs. We tried to encourage the froglet onto the rock in the tank so that the children could see how the froglet now moved. An ability to hop as well as being able to swim.

The benefits of the Visualiser to teaching & learning​:

  • All the children were able to share the excitement of seeing the developments of the tadpoles which we received as frog spawn several weeks ago.

  • Rekindled the interest in the tadpoles now that they had changed their appearance

  • Some views clearer than using the small magnifying glasses we have in class.

  • Allowed the children to experience a new form of technology.
