Full Product Description
The latest in a much loved and well respected line of classroom writing tools.
Neo is still the best digital notebook or writing tool to be used in the classroom, across all ages and abilities. It enables schools to get more ICT for their money, as well as get better use from the ICT that is already within the school. NEO2 is robust and easy to use as Neo, and still has the same wonderfully long battery life of over 700 hours from just 3 AA batteries.
So what’s new?
- With the new Text2Speech unit, NEO2 is now an easy to use, portable, talking word processor. Text can be read back by letter, word, sentence, or paragraph, and words are highlighted as they are read out. Text2Speech also works with the NEO2’s spell checker and thesaurus features. Connect to headphones for personalised use, or speakers for communication with others (requires System 3.8 and AlphaWord Plus 3.3 or higher).
- Incorporating technology from AlphaSmart’s successful Classroom Response System (CRS), NEO2 now enables teachers to create tests, ask questions, or take votes quickly and easily within their lessons. The results can instantly be shown on a screen or interactive whiteboard.
- With twice as much memory as Neo, NEO2 has room for more software applications. As well as Beamer and KAZ (the award winning typing tutor), NEO2 comes out of the box with Responder software. This additional software package allows teachers to set multiple choice, true/false, short answer questions and conduct on the fly voting sessions.
- Using wireless technology, NEO2 with the Receiver can print to a network printer, making this process much easier and more manageable in the classroom.
