In the classroom

As mentioned in the video, this tool could be useful in a classroom that does not have the most up to date technology. Sometimes, projections are small and can be hard to see for students. This could help. Also, it could be used to zoom in or highlight key information while leaving the rest of the screen normal size. It is a simple tool, but could be useful in the right circumstances.
