All tablets need to be returned each
day/evening after use – not to be taken home
Please do not add Internet favorites, or
items to the desktop – If you find a useful site,
let your technical person know
If you find any useful free books through
Kindle or Google, again let your technical person
know
Keep an eye on students to make sure they
are not adding items to the tablet



Some students may have trouble using the
touchscreen like using their fingernail or a pen
I-Phone or I-Pod headphones do work with the
tablets. Students must provide their own – we
do not supply them.
Please no food, gum or liquid near the
tablets

The current model we have needs Flash to run videos and
interactive software
They don’t seem to keep a charge for very long
If the system software needs upgrading, you must do each tablet
separately
When adding Favorite websites, must add them to each tablet –
easy but time consuming
We use basically for Internet. However, there is a free program
called Kingsoft Office that has docs, spreadsheets &
presentations. You can also access your work and home email,
which is convenient if you are away from the office
Some adult ed interactive programs, such as Ventures, the
screen is too small and it will not allow you to “stretch” it like
other screens will do
You may not get all the standard “home” pages, such as your
local library or newspaper

encourage them to arrive on time.”
• “Introduced them to websites they can also use
at home.”
• “Incorporate the use of the tablet with our EBRI
components.”
• “Reading class uses them for vocabulary practice
and to research reading topics”
• “Higher level ESL class uses them to research
blogs for their writing assignments.”
• “Wonderful teaching tool for both the younger
students who are text savvy and for the older
students that are using this type of technology
for the first time.”

“The library information is a learning
experience and the different websites also.”
