Pen on the Go

Intellislate_300dpi (1) I love the ability of tablet computers to put handwritten notes, sketches and math problems on a large screen monitor or projector screen, but for most schools they’re just too expensive for more than a handful of teachers to use. Numonics has a new approach that takes the best aspects of a tablet and makes them more budget friendly. Designed especially for K through 12 classrooms, Intellislate has an 8- by 6-inch area for the teacher to write, scribble or draw and it connects to a PC via a 2.4GHz wireless link. There’s a small display that shows its connection status as well as battery life. The best part is that rather than getting a couple hours of classroom work out of a charge, the Intellislate can run for several school days between charges. It sells for $450.
