Exploring the Impact of Digital Ink in the Classroom
IDC recently conducted a K-12 teacher survey on their use of 
technology in the classroom, and specifically their use of a 
stylus-based device as a teaching tool. Of the teachers using a
digital inking device, 90 percent reported improved quality of 
curriculum materials, and 67 percent said it increased class 
preparation time.

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 ienables 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.
