The growing use of smartphones may provide a continuing nuisance to teachers who strive to restrict their private use in class. But now there is a great new educational function for them – and getting the students to use their own phone can reduce their illicit use and saves a few quid on teaching resources. IDS Education have introduced a microscope which clips to a smartphone to view and capture images of 20 to 80x magnification dynamically.
The high quality robust lens produces a professional quality image which why these microscopes are also used by professionals. The microscopes can also be used with iPads, iPhones and iPod touch.
