The use of hybrid tablets have been an integral part of the classroom at Frankston High School since 2006. There have been many demonstrated benefits to using a hybrid tablet in an education setting. Over the last decade, the inclusion of a digital pen significantly improved performance for students when solving Science and Math problems. Using the digital pen, they produced 56% more non-linguistic content (diagrams, symbols, numbers), which improved a student’s ability to produce appropriate ideas, solve problems correctly, communicate and build on complex ideas, make accurate inferences about information, and learn during note taking and knowledge creation.
The research shows this is one of the most important components in ensuring the suitability of hybrid tablets for learning. Please view the following:
