Our next event will be an interactive session led by Richard Hubbard from Alphasmart.

How much work would you do if you had to share a keyboard? Well, we have all seen it in countless ICT suites and classrooms … one types and decides what to type, while the other thinks about what they will do after school that evening.

How much easier it would be if two keyboards were provided. Well Neo by AlphaSmart offers this facility. Just attach it as you would to send work and it will work happily work alongside the existing keyboard.

Richard will be bringing a complete set of Alphasmart NEO machines for this interactive session where we will look at writing, assessment, and effective integration of ICT. Booking is essential so that we can ensure that we have enough machines for everyone who wants to attend.

The Neo2 is a robust portable learning machine that can withstand a drop of one metre and can be powered for over 700 hours on just 3 AA batteries.

The event will feature a series of interactive sessions where everyone can contribute!

This will be an interactive session so please book so we can make sure we have enough NEO devices for everyone!
