Tablet computers to make education more interactive by Christiaan Patterson

"A new wave of learning tools, including tablet computers such as Apple’s iPad, bring future technologies into classrooms to aid both students and instructors.", reports Daily Sundial

A study by the University of Illinois, Tablet PCs for Classroom Use: Technology and Application, by Tony Hursh, compared tablet computers with laptops and found advantages and disadvantages.

One of the key advantages of owning a tablet computer is it allows a lecturing professor to interact with a presentation by scribbling onto a slide. This edited version can then be saved by students onto a tablet rather than having to write it down on paper.
