I have a few ideas to possibly try out on Monday from the conference these past two days, like videoing one of my lessons and post it on YouTube and taking pictures of the outside areas of my school to make a virtual nature trail... I'll keep you posted on what happens!  Wink

One note for the PDAs - excellent!  When might it be available?  I would love to use PDAs in my school.  I wish I could convince them quicker!

One Note for PDAs would be good.
Last year even some of Microsofts people were complaining that it wasnt available.
But how certain is this?

Yep One Note would be good but interestingly many of the excellent things that Gerry showed could have been done by Smart Notebook (or does it do a lot of things that you didn't have time to show?). If we had that as a version on the PDA the children would have a very powerful authoring and organising piece of software to use. This is particularly relevant in that teachers usually use the software for the collaborative "bits at the board" so is very familiar to teachers and children already. I had the chance to talk to some people from Smart and they are beginning to think about the logistics of it.

One thing I did want to ask though Gerry is that you asked your staff to maybe not use the whiteboard (I presume you meant interactive) and use the tablet PC instead. They do the same job don't they, or am I misunderstanding something? Your presentation was the highlight of the conference for me because it showed lots of examples of classroom practise using a device. 

Thanks

Thank you!   Grin   I don't know much about Smart Notebook, I haven't used it on a PDA.  Onenote is good for me and my learners as they don't have to save work, they can write/draw/type, they can click and drag files into it to make a hyperlink to that file, insert pictures and record sound and video into it.  About the interactive whiteboards - the school had enough money for two interactive whiteboards, laptops for all the teachers and data projectors for each lab.  But we worked out that we could get for the same money, tablets for all the staff and data projectors for each lab.  So we use the tablet instead of an interactive whiteboard.

Oh i see! I thought you meant you had weened them away from a whiteboard to a tablet. That makes perfect sense now.

Thanks
