Boston U. students get tablet PCs for the classroom
Boston U. -- Boston University students are passing notes, avoiding the chalkboard and staring intently at their computer screens ó and in at least one class, itís all at the instructorís request.
Metropolitan College has begun to use tablet PCs in a math class after it received an $80,000 grant from Hewlett-Packard.
The tablets allow students to sketch notes on a screen with digital pens and send problems to their professorís tablet. The added technology has gotten students more involved in class, science and engineering program Chairwoman Carla Romney said. (Source: Max Levy, The Daily Free Press)
