Wacom for education

Interactive classroom

Explore the solutions Wacom offers to support different styles of learning and different methods of teaching.

Wacom delivers products that let teachers and students communicate visually, share new ideas and concepts in real-time, and collaborate. Wacom's superior digital pen-input products help teachers and students communicate and share ideas more effectively through handwritten drawings, diagrams, annotations and notes – even while using computers and mobile devices. Wacom products can be used in a variety of educational settings – presenting in a traditional classroom, using a flipped classroom model, conducting remote learning or tutoring session, or having students work on a group project. Our interactive pen displays, Intuos tablets and Bamboo stylus help transform and maximize today's digital learning environment.

Schools from elementary school to higher education are incorporating different teaching styles and environments to fit the needs of students. An important focus to all of these is greater student engagement and participation. Wacom products support active learning, letting teachers and students communicate visually, share new ideas and concepts in real-time, and collaborate.

Wacom's interactive pen displays let you write directly on your screen – on top of any digital content you have – just like pen on paper. It doesn't get any easier or more intuitive. Our Intuos tablets immediately provide handwritten input to any PC or Mac. And our family of Bamboo stylus products provides comfort and greater control when writing on iPads or Window or Android tablets.

In today's classroom educators need the flexibility to incorporate new information and ideas into their lessons when presenting, and students are increasingly active contributors. Using Wacom interactive pen displays and working directly on the screen with a pen is an effective way for teachers to deliver presentations, lectures or lesson plans.

Teachers can prepare their content in advance, but turn that static material into active content that engages students and encourages their contributions. They can communicate visually by marking up and annotating their digital content – adding drawings, sketches and diagrams quickly and easily to elaborate on key concepts. New ideas can be captured and integrated into the conversation, leading to a richer learning experience.

Benefits

  • Interactive pen displays encourage greater class participation by allowing the addition of new information. Lessons go from static to dynamic.
  • Benefit from digital content by being able to prepare in advance, save and distribute later - but still have the freedom quickly add new ideas and information.
  • Our pen displays are extremely easy to use. Even infrequent users can immediately utilize them.
  • Compared to traditional or interactive whiteboards, teachers can stay connected with their students. They don't need to turn their back to write something on the board. Teachers can write and still maintain visual contact with the class.
  • The output can be projected large enough to be clearly viewed in classrooms of any size.
  • Wacom's interactive pen displays are software-neutral. They can be used with any of your favorite software applications.

Wacom's interactive pen displays and Intuos tablets can play a key role in creating effective media content used in a flipped learning environment. A key component to flipped learning is creating content for students to view and study outside the classroom or individually at their own pace. Rather than just rotating through static slides with prepared material and a voiceover, the discussion and content can flow naturally and visually show the thought process.

Using an Intuos tablet or an interactive pen display, teachers can create and communicate just as if they were sitting right next to the student. With the freedom the pen offers, your digital media can feel like a personal session with a free flow of information. Showing math equations as they are worked out or ideas and concepts diagrammed as they are explained aids comprehension. Integrate prepared material with notes, annotations and diagrams. Capturing it all while you present helps preserve and visually communicate the thought process.

With quality lesson plans that students can view outside of class, teachers using the flipped learning model can give more one-on-one time to students, maximizing the use of their skills and expertise.

Benefits

  • Working on an Intuos tablet or pen display mimics communicating ideas by paper, whiteboard or blackboard.
  • The pen allows you to communicate visually. Solve math, physics or chemistry equations in a step-by-step manner as you explain each step in the process. Students get to see and understand the thought process.
  • Even when starting with prepared material, additional information can be added spontaneously to accommodate the natural flow of ideas that occur when presenting.
  • Intuos tablets are small and light and can be used wherever is convenient for the content creator.
  • Pen displays provide the easiest and most intuitive experience because you write directly on the display surface.

Distance or remote learning is a good way to take advantage of scarce teaching resources or bridge the distance between teachers and students. But how do you make sure remote students do not feel removed and isolated or miss the richness that comes with direct interaction and discussion? Wacom interactive pen displays and Intuos tablets help ensure that remote learners are active, engaged and have the opportunity to participate just as if they were in the classroom or face-to-face with their tutor.

The pen-based input of our pen displays and Intuos tablets lets instructors create spontaneously. Mark up and annotate digital content or start with a blank surface and write as you go. Instructors can incorporate student input directly into the lesson as easily as writing on a whiteboard, making them feel like they are right there. Comprehension is also greatly improved for subjects and lessons that benefit from on-the fly, handwritten equations or diagrams.

Students participating remotely can interact with their instructor on a shared digital workspace by using pen tablets connected to their PC or with a Bamboo stylus on their iPad or Android device. 

Benefits

For Teachers:

  • Working on the Intuos tablets or pen displays enables the communication of ideas by writing and drawing as well as verbally.
  • Even when starting with prepared material, additional information can be added spontaneously to accommodate the free flow of ideas.
  • Wacom's interactive pen displays and Intuos tablets are software-neutral. They can be used with any of your favorite software applications. 

For Students:

  • Remote students involved in remote learning and tutoring sessions can use Intuos tablets to provide input and show their work directly from their PC.
  • Using Intuos tablets, students can complete and submit homework digitally. This is especially effective for subjects like math, science or foreign languages.

What do math, science and foreign language studies have in common? They are all subjects where writing by hand eases or enhances the learning process. Wacom interactive pen displays, Intuos tablets and Bamboo stylus products make this easier – even in the digital classroom.

Math and science are expressed in a language of equations, formulas and diagrams, which are hard to capture and communicate through the use of a keyboard. In a similar way, foreign language instructors who want to incorporate writing activities have a similar challenge. This is especially true when the letters or characters of the language being learned are not similar to the native language of the student.

Wacom pen tablets and stylus products can bring handwriting back to the classroom where PCs, Macs or iOS/Android/Windows tablets are used. Wacom Intuos tablets immediately enable pen input on any Windows or Mac PC. And Wacom’s stylus products offer an authentic pen-like experience on mobile devices.

Benefits

  • Writing by hand, whatever the subject, can aid comprehension and recognition. It can easily be incorporated into any school subject.
  • Handwritten homework and assignments can be saved and submitted digitally.
  • Students can practice writing and math exercises.
  • A Bamboo Stylus paired with the Bamboo Paper app lets students use iPads or Android devices as science lab notebooks or class journals that support handwritten input. The Bamboo Paper app for PCs and Macs, paired with an Intuos Tablet, lets you have the same functionality with laptops and desktop PCs.
