iconZusammenfassungen

Information communication technologies (ICTs) are increasingly considered valuable tools in education, promoting higher cognitive processes and allowing teachers and learners access to a wealth of information. However, these technologies are not easily accessible in developing countries such as South Africa, where a large percentage of the population are poor and are said to live below the breadline. The recent creation of small, low cost and low powered laptops called netbooks, are seen as possible solutions to allow or promote the use and integration of ICTs in education in these disadvantaged communities. This project evaluates the intuitiveness of the OLPC XO, the Intel Classmate and the Asus Eee PC in the context of secondary school education through the use of a user study. The user study involved three teachers and three learners from local secondary schools in Grahamstown. The results of the user study revealed that the teachers and learners (on the whole) felt that the Intel Classmate is the most intuitive netbook for secondary school learners involved in the user study. The presence of the VGA port and the portable nature of the Asus Eee were noted by participants as advantageous. The Asus Eee was also found to be appropriate for secondary school education although it was criticised for its small screen, small keyboard and absence of a webcam. Participants felt that the OLPC XO is less intuitive for secondary school educational purposes and is better suited for small children.
