Was in a discussion yesterday as to what software should be on the student notebook computers for 2007; do they all need Adobe Photoshop Elements? Would it be good to put PIcasa on all computers? What about utilities that help them manage their computer, like back up software? Which version of Office? Is MS Publisher still useful? I keep my own list of software for my own purposes, but I thought I’d create a new page here about software that might form the core of a well equipped student notebook computer.
I’d welcome any comments or suggetions as to what’s worked in schools with students, such as ‘has anyone had success with Open Office?’ or other software for mind-mapping you’ve found compelling.
