Part of this system, the hand-held Symbol SPT 1740 allows teachers immediate access to the network in the palm of their hand. Grades are recorded, student progress is tracked and the Internet is tapped, reducing downtime in areas such as charting and attendance. In the realm of security, the hand-held SPT 1500 with bar code reader lets personnel scan student information directly from ID cards. Information like medical history, class schedule or student status can be instantly accessed. Symbol Technologies, Inc., Holtsville, NY, (800) 722-6234, www.symbol.com.
