Tablet PCs in K - 12 Education
Despite the many advantages of computer-aided instruction, standard notebook computers are restricted by their keyboard and mouse inputs. Not so with tablet PCs. Using the tablet PC - basically a notebook computer with an interactive screen - teachers and students can write, draw, and sketch directly onto any computer document, in real time, and at a fraction of the cost of hard copy documents. Teachers can transmit lessons to student computers for their annotation. Students can respond in their own hand. A math teacher can show how a function changes over time. A Japanese language teacher can demonstrate the sequence of strokes to draw a character.
