Netbooks in the Classroom
MirandaNet was commissioned by Teesside City Learning Centre to evaluate the Ultraportable 1 to 1 project. The evaluation covered the two years of the Ultraportable Project: 2009 – 2011. These reports present a picture of the ways in which the Ultraportables (referred to as ‘Netbooks’ by pupils and teachers, and hereafter for the rest of these reports) have been integrated into classroom activities and pupil use.
The research collected data from the user base of the Samsung Netbook Project to investigate perceptions of pupils, teachers and school leaders of the impact of the Netbooks on learning, teaching, pedagogies and workflow. Data was collected through online questionnaires and followed up with telephone calls and email contact.
