A Brief History of the Wireless Tablet in Classroom Instruction
Wireless tablets are important tools that are used in the 21st century classrooms. GTCO CalComp manufactured and distributed interactive whiteboard with electromagnetic digitizing technology to the K-12 market as a mainstream classroom tool. After the success of whiteboards in the classrooms, eInstruction developed a tool that provided interactivity and mobility to the classrooms. With all research and development, the company executed SchoolPad, which was the world's first mobile interactive whiteboard. The use of wireless tablets in the classrooms has basically changed the way of teaching and interacting. This paper discusses and mentions Interwrite Mobi that is the next-generation wireless tablet system. The Mobu system is provided with patent-pending charging and security station that is called the Mobi Dock. It offers monitoring of real-time assessment results in the class. The resolution and durability of this product makes this technology long lasting. It is offered with a Know-What-I-Know (KWIK) LCD display that makes it easy for teachers to identify special attention and topics that need further explanation. A second version of the tablet called the Mobi Learner allows various students to work together and contribute lesson materials using the multi-user interface. This wireless tablet allows many students to participate at the same time. It is easy to use and operate. Discussed in this paper are the interactive learning solutions that provide industry-leading durability.
