Practical work in a 1:1 laptop environment

Some equipment worth purchasing:

web cams:
- long USB cable
- clip on
- built in microphone
- no additional software (drivers) required

dinolite/digital eyepiece:
- Is additional software (drivers) required? Do the students have administrator rights to their computer?

data loggers:
- easy to use
- will they connect to the student laptops (again, sofware issue)
- Is it possible to save the data in a format that can be opened on the student laptops if you cannot load additional software.

Microphone + headphone kits:
- hygiene considerations.
- USB connection
