I chose this hardware as being a future science teacher, I’m sure it will be very interesting to find innovative ways to use it. The differences between digital and traditional microscopy are very minor in regards to the optical equipment used. What is the real game changer is the ability to capture the image or stream it as a live video. This technology in practice would allow students to blog their findings and also try to manipulate the lighting digitally to see if they can uncover anything special about their sample which would be hard to explain with just the eye piece to look through. It also allows less able bodied students to experience the sample without knocking the scope.
After also doing a quick google search, the cost of digital microscopes range from $20-$80 for something lower to mid-tier which would suit the budget of most classrooms and could encourage students to try one at home if they wish to study further.
