Faculty Use of Tablet PCs in Teacher Education and K-12 Settings
Steinweg, Sue Byrd; Williams, Sarah Carver; Stapleton, Joy Neal
TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, v54 n3 p54-61 May 2010
As new technological tools emerge almost daily, students in public school and university settings are becoming increasingly technologically savvy. Faculty members in both settings have the opportunity to explore tools that have the potential to be valuable resources in a variety of educational environments. The Tablet PC is an example of one such tool. This computer combines the capabilities of a traditional laptop with the added feature of pen-based digital inking for handwritten notes and symbols, resulting in a very versatile tool. This manuscript provides examples of practical uses of Tablet PCs in teacher education programs and in K-12 classrooms based on faculty member exploration with this technology.
