Academic Possibilities of Tablet PCs

DePauw University professor Dave Berque says, "Tablet PCs offer teachers and students a natural way to deal with a wide range of academic possibilities ... "While traditional laptops are great for textual content, they don’t allow free-hand input of content."

Paying a little more (than for a non-Ink notebook) up front can increase the overall usefulness of the hardware investment(with a Tablet PC)."

Berque's work at DePauw led to the development of pen-based technology, now known as DyKnow Vision, that is being used in classrooms around the nation.

We like your pace, Dave! You make all of us stretch as you open new ways for us to increase student learning rates. Thanks.
