Thanks to my new USB modem ordered from Airtime Manager, I am delighted to announce that speakers at the upcoming show and tell session on the eve of The Isle of Wight Conference 2007 will now indeed have access to the internet for their presentations and not be restricted by running everything offline.
Plug and Play USB modems are convenient devices for surfing the web as they operate via a mobile phone signal and don't rely on a wireless hotspot to ensure connectivity. For £25 a month, you can more or less guarantee web access anytime, anyplace, anywhere at 2G or 3G connection speeds.
I can see this being useful when moblogging around the country and speaking at conferences about the potential of Web 2.0 tools in the classroom. Moreover, if I want to use the modem on our annual educational visit to Brittany, it will only cost me £8.50 a day for unlimited data. This could prove very useful as a way of allowing parents and friends to share in our experience and find out what we've been up to each day away. Cool.
