Hi, I'm looking to give a presentation where I show a group of people how to use an app, the best way would be to project my smartphone screen directly onto the display screen. I have an LCD projector and a laptop. Is this possible?

Thanks!

Depending on the model you may be able to use a remote support software that has support for mobile phones, once you have connected to the phone from a computer using the remote software you could project that to the screen and show usage that way.  

A couple of options for software are:

Both of these solutions are perfect, the software meets my needs better, but the camera is a great idea too, thank you both so much!
