    Old PC, New Role?

    We have an old (but fully working) all in one PC with 10" touch screen and built in printer we used to do the dinner money and stickers on.

    Its now surplus and I want to put it to good use, this is where you guys come in......

    What can I do with it to make it a resource again and not bin it?

    Thanks

    Chris

    Play Solitaire on it? Or maybe use it for PowerPoint slides, but on a 10" screen this could be difficult.

    Maybe use it as a Self-Service Password Reset machine and locate it in a handy place in the school.

    Sixth form signing in.

    How about a room booking terminal for the staff room.

    Or if it's got speakers just rig up to make rude noises. See how many teachers will actualy believe that it has the tourets virus.

    How about putting it in reception so guest can use it while they wait? The interactive experience will be good.
