Description

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 Windows 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 maths teacher can show how a function changes over time. Students can go home after school, go online and review lessons as they happened. This book is a practical guide for educators who would like to use tablet PCs to instruct, communicate and collaborate in the classroom.
