Breakthrough Technologies III: Graphics Tablets

Robin and Rosie are joined by former physics teacher Thomas to talk tech… After making the case for peer tutoring (low-cost, high impact according to the EEF), we turn our attention to EdTech for the 3rd time.

Dr David Boyce returns for the last in our series of chats about seismic technological shifts driven by EdTech. I hope you have checked the two previous episodes on 3d-printing and AI. Today, David makes the case for graphic tablets as an alternative to blackboards, whiteboards and smartboards. This has real resonance with the team – and hopefully will give you another option to consider when you are planning tech for the classroom. David’s point that the limited functionality makes it more appealing is a tantalising one.
