Products and Accessories for Your TI-Nspire

By Jeff McCalla, Steve Ouellette

A few TI-Nspire products are worth mentioning here. The functionality of TI-Nspire Computer Software has been expanded in recent years to include the functionality of some of these other Texas Instruments products:

  • TI-Nspire Computer Link Software: Now obsolete, this software enables your handheld to communicate with your computer and take screen shots directly from the handheld. TI-Nspire Computer Software can do all that and more!

  • Connect-to-Class Teacher Software: This software is no longer needed because TI-Nspire Computer Software is able to perform the function of sending .tns documents to a class set of handhelds. However, the Belkin USB hubs that usually come with Connect-to-Class are still needed to send files to more than one handheld at a time.

  • TI-Nspire Docking Station: This is a new product that recharges class sets of TI-Nspire handhelds, transfers documents to or from multiple handhelds, and updates the OS on multiple handhelds at the same time.

  • TI-Nspire Lab Cradle: This product can help students collect data from nearly all of Vernier’s sensors. This system charges the cradles and supports users to get fast-rate data collection, including digital and multiprobe support.

  • TI-Nspire Navigator: This product allows your computer to communicate with a classroom set of TI-Nspire Handhelds wirelessly. You can transfer files, collect and grade questions instantly, take screen shots of the whole class, project a student’s handheld screen . . . the possibilities are endless. It makes for a much more dynamic learning environment.
