Which is the best breakfast, a discussion forum topic maybe?
The denial of having devices with them…
What hooked students, summer school…ebooks Some students wanted more materials NOW!!!! Technology students arent always interested in technology…..What was that student quote? There is not enough money in a grant to persuade students to do anythin
Ie don’t get something complicated and leave it in a drawer!
Whats all this text? For those reading these slides rather than at a presentation ..... Why so many slides, mostly to provide resources to follow up and the reason for all the text on the slides is to provide useful resources and links! Some of the slides have notes in small text that were not on the actual presentation.

History http://members.surfeu.at/org2/psion1/ 1984 1996 1999 1993
1996 PDA Specifications First Palm and WindowCE Machine specifications. Note Most early projects used the Palm. Although it had less media capability it had huge battery life making many projects feasible and set some expectations for what would be practical in future. The move to devices with greater media capability but short battery life, meant some of the promises of the future have not yet been realised....and also see the next slide 6-8 Weeks 160 *160 128K 16Mhz Palm Pilot 1000 Palm OS 20 hours 640 x 240 2MB 44Mhz Hewlett Packard HP 300LX, WindowsCE Battery Life Screen Size (Pixels) RAM CPU Speed PDA Operating System
