NEO2 for Keyboarding and Writing

The NEO2 is worth taking a look at for schools looking for cost-efficient machines for keyboarding and writing. This machine is the newest Alphasmart. Here are some great features of the device:
  • text can be enlarged
  • not Internet-connected
  • transfer data wirelessly to computer
  • includes the "Home Row Check" feature within keyboarding program
  • has a feature to wirelessly transfer data to Google Docs
  • Text2Speech add-on device available
  • made out of football helmet material
The Fusion and the Writer are similar devices and I will try to take them for a test drive at ICE today.
