And the PROPER way to do it!!!

I hate touch screens and touch pads. I always seem to touch the wrong places at the wrong time and lose whatever I'm looking at.

Just one thing though, that's a cr*ppy piece of 6 mm raw ply!

If you were to get a bit green felt 'Fablon' to stick on the ply and smarten it up, you could be on to a winner!  Worldwide sales etc  Smile

All the best,

Malc.

Over the years I have done quite a lot of school exam invigilation, one of the duties is to collect the mobile phones and store them in a box at the front of each row. What I have noticed is, there is a reluctance for the students to use a simple case or screen protector, and I would say that around 25% of touch screens are cracked or completely smashed as if they had been stamped on or dropped onto concrete from a great height.
What amazes me, the phones still work, and turn off when required.

To finish off, with the introduction of smart watches, not only do exam invigilators have to collect phones, but now ALL watches, whether they look smart or not.

I digress slightly... What annoys me in exams is, often the students buy their all singing all dancing scientific calculator the weekend before the exam, and in their maths exam struggle because they have it set in the wrong mode, radians, gradient etc, or don't know where the "on" button is. Now if it's a statistics calculator, heaven help them. Now lucky for them, my school had a set of basic calculators to lend if required.



best regards, Richard.

In my opinion, being on a boat is one of the most relaxing place to be.

Calculators in an exam room?
All we had was a slide rule and log book.
Do log books still exist?

Yes Paul I remember log tables, try walking into WHSmith and asking for a set lol you will get some funny looks.

I remember ready reckoners too, used in the days of £ s d  that's pounds shillings and pence for the young folk.

Pages of results of multiple additions or multiplications of various combinations of shillings and pence... ( feet and inches too lol).
Ok  a dairy milk bar of chocolate costs 1/6d   (one and six) what will 7 cost? somewhere in the book would be the answer. The person who could refererence the right page the quickest appeared to be the smarter.

Of course anyone over 55 would do that calculation in their head and get 10/6d (ten and six)... All coming back now lol...

Now thinking about it, other than an old fashioned cash till as seen on Heartbeat, a standard modern calculator couldn't cope adding up shillings and pence, or feet and inches.
