I am very excited that I will have a chance to actually use and review the TeacherMate handheld computer. These handhelds are being promoted as a low cost 1:1 computing solution for grades K-3. For a limited time they are allowing teachers to test the machines for free for 30 days! I am looking forward to seeing how the software works. I am looking into how I can possibly create a 1:1 environment for the 2009-10 school year, but I am not sure what hardware (whether it is the TeacherMate or XO-1 or something else) I will try to get.
