US Technology Recommendations for Families

US Tech RecommendationsFor the curious, here’s a downloadable PDF copy of the freshly revised 2007 US Technology Recommendations. It’s a three page document that discusses school-provided and home-owned computer options for students, along with example systems and cost-saving recommendations.

One change in the document this year is the inclusion of www.techhead.org, a Oregon-based consortium that enables students registered by the school to purchase reduced priced software and TI Calculators. A copy of Office 2007 Standard is $69.70, for example. We also share some online sources for less expensive Dell and Apple computers.

We also have the US Computer Use Survey being answered by students, and it appears that we will have a substantial jump in the percentage of students bringing their own laptops to campus this year. More on this later…
