Hi, I've just joined to your forum as I'm really confused, thank you for taking the time to read my post its really appreciated.
Oldest son has started high school this year and has been given some homework which can be done as a power point(confused) or handwritten if not got computers etc. We have got a laptop which is coming up for about 3 years old so my questions are do I get the power point thingy for £100 and put it on our laptop and get a cheaply printer so he can do homework like that, or someone says get a tablet and I can air print the homework to a printer( no idea what they mean), or do I get a new laptop.....thing is my oldest isn't that fussed for any really its me thinking this as I want him be able to do his homework on computer so he doesn't look like he behind with the times at school with his friends, I know this sounds silly but high school seems a bit nasty and don't want draw attention to him by not having the right gadgets for school/homework......so sorry for waffling but just mega confused,thank youuuuuuu.xx
If you are confused, and your son is not all that fussed, taking into consideration that its him who should be responsible for his homework etc. Then I would suggest he as a word with other member's of his school, including the person responsible for teaching or IT, what they would suggest or recommend, so as to keep in line with others.
Using LibreOffice will certainly save money, but will he be able to master it, or even want to, if others are using a different method?.
