11 Reasons Why a Tablet PC is Better

Check these uses of Tablet PCs in class lessons when compared with boards, projectors, etc.

– No need to erase to keep going.

– Can go BACKWARD and answer dangling questions.

– Can archive and share my presentation after class.

– Can easily incorporate rich media into my classroom.

– Can more easily overlay annotations on images.

– Have a million colors at my fingertips.

More reasons why a Tablet PC works better with a projector in a classroom:

– Can make the image HUGE so everyone can see.

– Can face students while writing on projected image, etc.

– Can present from the BACK of the room so students focus more on the content.

– Can take it home or on a field trip.

– Can create video podcasts before (or during) class.

While these are mostly from 1-to-1 settings where all the students and the teacher are interacting through their own tablet pc, there are many examples of what can be done with ONE tablet in a classroom.
