Has anyone used both the navigator and CPS? If so, which is easier for students to use? From the training we had this summer it seems like the CPS might be easier for the kids to use. Also, where are the CPS for PLD stored right now?

The CPS is easier to use, but there is less stuff you can do with them. the TI navigator has more options, however this makes it more difficult for the kids to use at first. After a while however, I think they are both pretty easy if you use them often. The navigators are in our storage room and the CPS systems are in my room. Just let me know when you want to borrow one.

I used the CPS on day two with my math strategies class and they have been asking to use them ever since. I really liked the fact that the kids were anonomous from each other. They also encouraged each other to buzz in. The percent correct increased with each problem we did. I really would use it more if I had it readily available in my room each day. I wish we each had one.

I have used both the cps and the nav, it really comes down to taking the time to get personal with the navigator. Currently I have one in my room, my students who used the nav with me in Alg II last year, are begging to use it Alg III. I have used the CPS as well this year. It really depends on the content you are working with. If you are working with graphing and using the technology like with capri for geometry then the navigator is the best fit. If you are working with factoring for instance, it is nice to use the cps units to engage the students. I am willing to help with either of them.

I would say you can probably do anything the navigator does on the CPS... It is SWEET!!!

CPS is an assessment tool and TI-Navigator is a learning tool

My biased opinion although I use both the TI-Navigator and the Senteo (CPS For smartboards.)

CPS could kick Navigator's butt. Hands down

Seriously, CPS is simply easier to use. There is NO learning curve for the students and there are no wires. I also don't have to make sure that everybody has a certain app or OS. Plus I don't have to say the word "dongle".

I just wish I could get one for my area of the building that was more accessable that the upstairs unit. I believe Terry Carr was working on getting the special ed. department some, but haven't heard anything. It sure would be nice.

I know this is old, but once you get to using the Nav it is just as easy and has a lot of the same concepts that the cps does with reports and such. But you guys just go on believing the other, I don't mind keeping it in my room
