How can we get the best out of our rubbish netbooks?
We have four trolleys of samsung netbooks which take an age at the beginning of lessons to log on to the network. We recently lost an ICT suite due to building works that won't be opened again until the end of 2014. As a result of these two things I have a bunch of irate teachers who can't teach with what we have. I don't blame them, the log on times are ridiculous for the netbooks. We have 2 trolleys of much better laptops that log on quickly and just work.
Anyway, I'm trying to work out the best route to get some use out of these netbooks, particularly for some staff who want to use them for controlled assessments.
Can anyone suggest how we could achieve this?
Maybe flatten a group of laptops and have them off the domain, purely as word processors saving all work to memory sticks?
Booting up straight to a remote desktop log on screen or some other remote solution?
