Hello,

I am fairly new to theese forums,I thought i might give a try as i have had experiences with learning with palms.I am a Pupil of Radstock primary to have 1 class of 30 odd chrildren aged 11 to havea class of N800's.The N800's are a internet tablet that costs 180 each.Radstock is the only wokingham Distric council school to have a 1 class with N800's.I think they are great to work with and are very educational.I and fellow class mates do NOT get destractied in class and we do have rules and restrictions.

Hi Iona

Welcome to the forum,  it's great to have you here sharing your experiences as a learner and I'm sure you can teach us a few things!

Can you tell us a bit more about how you are using your N800's in your everyday work?

Can you use them whenever you like or do you have particular activities?

Thanks!

Graham

Hi Graham,

Well we can use the N800's in a matter of diffrent ways in lessons from making notes to drawing a mind map.We use the N800's in all our lessons from Englich to PSHE.We do not take our N800's maths becasue the other class do not have them.We do not use the N800's as much in french although we can go on websites to help us learn.We do have rules though like:

Allowed:
to takes notes/mind maps related to subject
To go on websites related to subject ect

Not Allowed:

To take/search pictuers of subject
To bluetooth during classes if it is of task ect

Hi Iona

So it sounds like you have developed an "acceptable use policy" for how you use your devices in class.

Do you find any benefit for using them at home?

Hi Graham,

Yes we do have alot of benefit from using the Nokia N800's at home, beacsue if you have wirless connection at home, them you can use that to do on a website or uniservity to do your homework instaed of a computer.If you do not have the internet avalible at home then there is alternative, games and notes and alot more click here to view the N800's wide range of applications http://www.nseries.com/products/n800#l=applications,landing,list-try it!!

Hi Iona
Very interesting to hear how you are using the N800 both in and out of school.
Do your teachers every give you learning resources to put on your N800 so you can use them when there is not a wireless internet connection?

Hi Micheal,

Nice to hear from you !!!
Yes we some times do depending on what task doing ,for example.If we had no internet connection at home but at school,Mr Griffin would send us all a piece of textbit of the s and to say we had to rewrite a bit of the story,then we would write a bit at school,then at home.

Also if we had the internet at home ,then we could go onto radstock uniservity and do are homework on there as there is lot's of resources to do on uniservity.

Hi Iona and everyone

Iona is doing a great job at explaining what we are doing. The aim of the project is to try and integrate the Learning Platform- in our case Uniservity- with the Handheld Devices- Nokia N800 Internet Tablets.

Once I've planned it- tomorrow we are going to use the N800's to research Tudor Medicine and build up a picture of a Tudor Medicine Chest. So we'll use the tablets to do the research, and then the children can choose whether they use the N800's or pen and paper to produce the outcome. The outcome can then be added to Uniservity.

If you want to see what we are doing, you'll need to get hold of the forthcoming Becta DVD on Learning Platforms- our Tudor Day is the first video ont he DVD. It features a fair amount of work using the N800's.

OK, better get to work.

Hi Mr griffin,Graham,Micheal and everyone and no one.

The Tudor day was fantastic!!I loved it,it was a one in a million chance and it came true,to show how we use the N800's.The film crew were fantastic, aswell as us-hehe, as i was saying,the film crew took lot's of pictures to show us using the learning platform(uniservity) and how we use the N800's in a matter of different ways.

If you want any more infomation ask Mr Griffin and i as we would love to share are experience with the N800's or you'll need to get hold of the Becta DVD on Learning Platforms

I'm posting this for another member of my class whose parents want her to stay anonymous.

High Tech Class!
 

My class  has the best way of teaching - with mini Internet tablets! My class of 30 children has a N800 each all funded by our school and local council. These devices are expensive and therefore we are very careful with them. We are allowed to take them home everyday to finish homework that we have been set or to show our parents the work we have done in school that day.
                                   
Or teacher is really good at making our lessons interesting by giving us certain web sites to look at or giving us time to jot down notes whilst he is talking. Also the good thing about the N800s is that work can be saved and later on uploaded onto Uniservity (our school web site.) Our school received a letter asking if we wanted to bring 8 people from our class to go to London Olympia via Uniservity.     
     
Of course my teacher agreed and he chose 8 people to go with him to London. We all had a great day and the rest of the class back at school weren't left out because they used the n800s to communicate by the Uniservity instant messaging tool. Also, every month or so have camera crews and people in from other companies to see how we use the N800s and Uniservity. We all have great use out of our N800s and they are definitely worth having!!
