Information to parents
This pilot is also interested in parents' opinion on the use of netbooks at home. The out-of-school use of netbooks for non-formal and informal learning purposes has not yet fully been explored. Moreover, netbooks can allow parents' fuller involvement in their child's learning experience and create a stronger connection between the school and home. For this reason, parents’ voluntary participation in the evaluation is very much encouraged.
As a parent you don't need to be a computer expert to help your child to participate in the pilot. Your child's school and teachers will receive support in implementing the pedagogical use of the netbooks, and Acer's local technical maintenance services will be available should any technical problems occur.
