Using an Alpha Smart unit--similar to a laptop computer, but not a laptop computer--the form can be copied and sent from my office computer, using Get Utility 3.
Content started on an Alpha Smart can be sent to almost any file with a blinking cursor, such as Word, PowerPoint, Inspiration, e-mail, Web forums, and even Excel.
Using the typed notes on the Alpha Smart unit, the same type of review can be completed.
Returning to my office or home, I download the digital pictures to the computer and prepare an e-mail to the student, attaching the pictures and observation notes from the appropriate file on the Alpha Smart to the "message" portion of the e-mail.
The melding of the Alpha Smart laptops, which can perform word-processing, calculating, and simple file management, and the more powerful full-blown Project Smart PCs was perfect.
The district's own very impressive efforts have been greatly extended by the many additional hours of training given by Youthline USA, Alpha Smart, Classroom Connect and others.
