Exploring the Impact of Digital Ink in the Classroom
IDC recently conducted a K-12 teacher survey on their use of

With an ever-increasing range of classroom device options,
school leaders should consider devices that will most directly
support authentic and efficient student-teacher engagement
and reduce time spent on nonteaching-related activities. In this
webinar, you'll learn about teacher-reported benefits on using ink
in the classroom and how it enables instant student feedback at
the "teachable moment." Hear how using a device with an active
stylus provides the personalization and flexibility of a pen and paper,
and the immediacy of instant messaging to open and maintain
personal connections at the precise moment students
would be receptive to feedback, thus enabling better learning.
