Why should teachers consider buying a laptop? Of what use will it be to them?
Laptops have many uses. Just consider this simple suggestion:
Take a laptop with you to meetings and type up the minutes as the discussion progresses – it saves time later.
Teachers are expoected to attend so many meetings of which minutes have to be written later. The value of doing the minutes while the meeting is in progess should be clear.
The most useful thing about a laptop is its mobility:
Laptops allow teachers to communicate, work and learn wherever they are.
Laptops allow teachers to be more productive – with it they can work whenever they have some time available for it.
Mobile technology makes whenever-wherever work possible. Wise teachers make use of it … but they remember that the best mobile device avaialble to them remains the brain.
