GENERAL APPLICATIONS IN EDUCATION
CONVEY VISUAL INFORMATION VIA SKETCHES AND DIAGRAMS
Show the key manoeuvres in major battles, sketch the organelles in a cell or map heat flow in the Earth. Then add arrows and labels in class to help students grasp concepts and processes.
USE SYMBOLIC LANGUAGES WITH EASE
Some subjects are not easy to communicate with a keyboard. Pen-based input lets you construct equations, sketch out ideas or show examples quickly and naturally in subjects like maths, physics, chemistry and music.
CREATE MULTIMEDIA DOCUMENTS
Building a story, a lesson or a concept from a variety of sources is as easy as cut-and-paste. The end product can then be saved as a single document and printed or e-mailed to colleagues, students and parents.
Use on trips to review resources in the field, do additional research via the Internet (if wireless access is available), and capture data on the spot.
