    21st Century Learners

    Are YOU  ready for the paradigm shift ?

    What can Visualisers do for me…and my classes?

    Think about a digital camera linked to your electronic  whiteboard. You now have the ability to examine  and display text, images, objects  and even living things. Ditch your overhead projector, this is the kid on the block.

    Now connect it to your  PC using the visualiser software, you now extend the range of uses and applications.  You can now display  slow motion events, time-lapse events. Capture, store and review any object, including 3D objects.  Use the split-screen operation and display mirrored images. You can also display negative images and generate and store  videocasts.
