I am writing a research report regarding the use of tablet PCs in a university environment. Unfortunately, there is not a great deal of case studies or experimental work documented and available.

Has any one out there found or have access to any documented case studies of implementation or use of tablet PCs in an educational environment? It doesn't have to be university level.

Any personal experience or comments are welcome too!

Thanks,

Hello Audrey,

I am currently doing research for my company for this very subject. Here are two articles you can review and possibly contact the schools for more informatio:

1. Tablet PCs in Education
http://www.bentley.edu/news-events/press_releases/pr_view.cfm?id=910

2. MIT CHANGES THE FACE OF EDUCATION USING TABLET PCS
http://microsoft.com/education/?ID=TabletMIT

Also, here is another website that might assist you (www.tabletPCbuzz.com).

You may have seen some of this information already...

Good luck

Marcus

Hi Audrey,

There are many sources for pilot projects using tablet PCs in education - try The Chronicle of Higher Education and T.H.E. Journal (November 2003 issue) as a start. These (especially the Chronicle) will identify schools trying the technology. I recently wrote an NSF grant to incorporate handhlds and tablets into the Community College where I work and found many schools trying them out.

Good luck with your research!

Like Audrey, I am working on a report about the use of Tablet PCs in educational environments. I was wondering if anyone was aware of any studies performed besides the articles listed in this thread.

Thanks in advance
Bryan

Look for laptops in education. I have written a paper on it. The state of Maine has a program in which every 7th grader gets a laptop. There are laptop schools around the country. Chesterfield, Mo has one called Christian Brothers High School and I think Westfield.

Laptops in education began in Australia--look there.
