    Using a PSP in Maths 

    PSP preloaded with SUMS Handheld Maths software

    Today was the second day that I used the PSP’s with my class during Maths and the effect was just as good as the first – instant feedback during work creates a better learning atmosphere.

    I ventured into the ICT suite today looking for the two most important bits of hardware that I was most interested in using this year – a class set of PSP’s (lite with camera attached) and a trolley of 15 Eee PC’s. Unfortunately I couldn’t get to ‘play with them’ as they were being charged. But the hardware is there for some exciting ICT development throughout the school. I’ll of course refer to the excellent ‘Ideas to Inspire‘ guide created by Mark Warner which has a phenomenal number of ideas for using technology in the classroom. I’ll refer to¬†this guide for netbooks and hopefully be able to add to the resource over the year with more ideas.

    The PSP is a different matter altogether. It’s been preloaded with a Maths (Numeracy) and English (Literacy) package and unfortunately I couldn’t get to try it out to see what it was like. But it also has the addition of a camera. So I’ll work my way through possible uses over the next week or so and blog my findings.

      I’m looking forward to reading more about your discoveries when using this technology in the classroom.

      Hope it all goes well

        I’ve taken one PSP home for the weekend and after trying out the software installed I’ll post my experiences and thoughts. Hopefully I’ll be able to make use of the class set of PSP’s next week.
