Smart Forms in Education


I know a science teacher who plots out texts and reports he reads into forms he creates on his Tablet PC. He uses these forms to understand relationships among variables addressed in texts. He is a long time, sophisticated personal computer user and former business person.

I wonder if he has tried using Microsoft InfoPath to create Smart Forms. I’ll try to remember to ask him next time we talk. Do you know of an educator using InfoPath and of her/his evaluation of it for expediting academic work?
