TOUCH. TURN. PLAY. LEARN.
The Fizzbook Spin has been built specifically for education, being designed and then approved by the toughest critics – teachers and students. As a total classroom solution the Fizzbook Spin provides netwbook, e-reader and touch screen tablet functionality, complemented by a suite of classroom software that’s included as standard.
The hand-held durable device has been built to withstand the classroom environment, compact and light-weight, whilst still powerful enough to provide students with software optimised for education. It’s used as an aid to teaching across the curriculum and lesson spaces, moving between classes within a portable secure trolley. Its education focus and durable design means it is also adopted by schools as a personal device on a one per child basis.
The way in which children learn is changing and the use of ICT across the curriculum is increasing. The Fizzbook’s flexible design and connectivity options mean students are not tied to a desk; its tablet mode makes it possible to hold in the hand and means it can be used outside of the traditional classroom.
Clicking and scrolling can be done with your fingertips and for more detailed entry there is a built-in stylus. Onboard handwriting recognition works for all applications and gives you options for joined-up or printed handwriting.Or, if required a virtual keyboard. All this is complimented by an in-built accelerometer, which rotates the screen so it is always the right way up for the person looking at it. This also means al features are available for left and right handed users. In addition, Fizzbook Spin can also be used as an e-book with the appropraite software.
Not only does the Fizzbook come with word processing, spreadsheet and art packages, the Fizzbook Spin’s standard classroom tools are unique. It’s the only solution which comes pre-loaded with SMART Classroom Suite*, the integrated softwrae solution from SMART Technologies.
The software is designed specifically for teachers and students to use in a computer enabled classroom and combines their award winning SMART Board interactive whiteboard software, SMART Notebook with SMART Sync, SMART Notebook Student Edition and SMART Response CE.
This powerful piece of software enables teachers to take control of the Fizzbooks in their classroom. With familiar and easy to use creation tools, teachers can deliver lessons which include whole class, group and individual interactive activities. There is also the added option of turning their Fizzbook into an assessment tool using SMART Response CE. All the elements you need to personalise students learning are combined in the Fizzbook and you’ll be wondering how you taught without them.
