Tablet PC Articles available


This must be the week for Tablet PC news. The IEEE Computer Society magazine issue with a bunch of articles on Tablet PCs in education is available for free download (PDF file – 4.6 MB) for a limited time (thanks to a link from Jim Vanides at HP)


Articles include:



1. Magic Paper: Sketch-Understanding Research – how does one think about a surface that is natural and easy to draw on, yet understands what you draw?

2. Ink, Improvisation, and Interactive Engagement: Learning with Tablets – thoughts on the integration of technology features and instructional models developed by educators.

3. Handwriting Recognition: Tablet PC Text Input – how do you accomplish recognition over a wide range of writing styles and poorly formed cursive script? Use a time-delay neural network working with a lexicon.

4. Classroom Presenter: Enhancing Interactive Education with Digital Ink – this system supports the sharing of digital ink on electronic slides to promote active learning and collaboration in the classroom.

5. Facilitating Pedagogical Practices through a Large-Scale Tablet PC Deployment – tablet use by all students and faculty in and out of the classroom has shown positive initial results.

    If you like Classroom Presenter, but dont have tablets for the entire class I recommend Ubiquitous presenter (http://up.ucsd.edu).  Coming from UC San Diego its a great project that allows students to view the lecture slides from any machine with a web browser.  They can participate in the lecture and respond to questions asked easily 🙂
