I noticed that your students are using Netbooks. I teach technology for grades PreK-2. Can you give me any feedback on the pro's and con's of these computers?
Thanks for your question. This is our first year with the laptops. We are using Dell Latitude 2100. They have been working great for the students. The keyboard is just the right size and the screen is a decent size. If it was slightly bigger websites would fit better for the students to see. That would be one thing I would change. Students are able to go on the web and typing using Word works well. We are just starting to push them to see the ability of creating movies on them. Since the screen is smaller it is not as ideal for this type of thing as our desktops are. It all depends on what you plan to use them for. I love them for what we are using them for. If we need to do more complex things I have 5 desktops in my room and access to a computer lab. I hope this helps. Please let me know if you want any feedback on areas that I didn't address. Thanks again for your question.
