Kathy Schrock advises that the NAUSET (MA) TECHNOLOGY NEWS, the Nauset Public Schools Podcast Directory, including Podcast 12: Tablet PC’s in the Middle School. (Make sure to turn on the volume switch. I forgot to do so, again, the first times I loaded the podcast.)
Kim Conner and Majen Hammond, Instructional Technology Specialists at Nauset Regional Middle School, discuss the impact on teaching and learning that they have seen thus far this year with the new Tablet PCs in the computer labs.
This is a clear, thoughtful, and enthusiastic description of using Tablet PCs with 7th graders.
You may find it useful to reference other podcasts in this directory as you prepare proposals and refine procedures to use mobile PCs in your school.
Way to go Kim, Majen, and Kathy! Thanks for taking the time to tell the rest of us about your procedures and successes. You bring smiles of acknowledgment to people who have spent years developing Tablet PCs and its software, and honor to students using them as they prepare for the sea change technology holds for their future.
