How ever did education secretary Charles Clarke MP get his reputation as a heavyweight bruiser? Especially when all and sundry at the BETT educational technology show at Olympia, London, in January could see that he was just a sweetie - a regular lollipop in fact, complete with Curriculum Online logo.
OK, those nice people at Palm have put up prizes of two brand new Zire handheld computers for the funniest captions for the minister's walkabout picture below. Just send your suggestion, along with your name, school, and contact details, to TES Online (Palm), Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield, London E1W 1BX. Or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Palm Zire is the lightest and most affordable of the range, costs between pound;79 and pound;89 and has the classic diary, address book, note pad and to-do list. And information can be "beamed" by infrared to any other Palm-powered device (and some mobile phones). The package contains everything you need to get going and to synchronise your data with your Windows PC or Mac.
