Teachers may have many questions about owning a laptop. This page serves as a point of reference to some of these questions.
You are invited to browse around and leave a comment or ask additional question. You may do so on the relevant blog entries, or email your comments to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would like this Laptop for Teachers intitiative to be a ‘work in progress’ with participation from all of you. In this way those of you who are already accomplished laptop users can share your experience with your colleagues who are yet to come to grips with the issue.
These blog postings have been published in the book Laptops for Teachers and thousands of copies have been sponsored to be distributed at no cost to teachers who do not yet have access to the internet.
