Students replace books with Tablet PCs
Carnegie Mellon University is conducting an experiment at The Ellis School and one of CMU's own classes in which traditional textbooks are replaced with a Tablet personal computer. The HP Compaq 1100 Tablet PCs weigh 4 pounds and have been adapted so students can highlight key passages on the screen and write on the e-text with a digital pen. Students also can send their homework on the Tablet PCs and get material from their teachers. And even better:
"I can understand the material better because I have a visual image. It's a lot easier and faster to type. It's all on one file," said Chao, 14, of Squirrel Hill.
Math teacher Russ Schopper presents a problem on a computerized blackboard. The same image appears on the students' 8-by-10-by-1-inch computers. A split screen lets the students solve the problem on one side and refer to the textbook on the other. As always, read the whole thing.
