Holy Redeemer School, a Catholic K8 school in Minnesota, is focused on deliv- ering an educational environment that differentiates the learning experience for each child's specific needs. Part of that initiative involves giving every student, including those in kinder- garten, a tablet to engage them in their education.

The NEW ELMO elite P2MP Max solution merges traditional, live teaching material with digital content and distributes lessons in real-time to every student in a 1:1 class- room environment. Educators can now integrate every piece of technology from the ELMO document camera to iPads and Android tablets and smartphones easier than ever. ELMO elite P2MP Max dis- plays the ELMO image on up to 40 devices and is great for a large classroom. ELMO elite P2MP Max does not require an Internet connection and creates its own Wi-Fi network. This removes the stu- dents' ability to access other Wi-Fi con- nections, ensuring all students and audi- ence members will be on task and focused on the lesson. The viewers can only see what the instructor wants them to see and the host computer is notified when a view- er has closed the Circle Viewer App. ELMO Elite P2MP Max allows the instructor to hand over control to a student for interactive learning. The Circle Viewer App is available to download for client devices from iTunes and Google Play. ELMO Elite P2MP is also available in smaller systems depending upon class size.
