Wacom offers many tools to help educators communicate and engage with students in an effective, visual way and help prepare students for successful careers in art and design.
Introducing aspiring art and design students to the same graphics tablets and pen displays used professionally by industry leading studios and agencies enhances their freedom of expression and accelerates their creative development. Graphics tablets and pen displays are not only superior to a mouse for drawing, sketching and painting, they give students an advantage when they enter the workforce as a creative.
Increasing student participation and attention in different learning environments such as interactive classrooms, lecture halls, flipped classrooms, collaborative workgroups, and distance/remote learning is made possible using a Wacom pen directly on the screen or on a tablet. Marking up slides, annotating on images, and writing diagrams and formulas on-the-fly are all excellent methods for visually communicating with students and improving their comprehension and retention. Wacom education specialists are available to help educators in K-12 and Higher Education institutions.
Using a pen is natural for students for taking notes, writing equations, editing papers, and creating graphics. Wacom offers many affordable pen options, from Bamboo Stylus to be used on an iPad or Android slate, to pen tablets for their laptops, and Cintiq interactive pen displays for aspiring art and design professionals.
