U Texas Ed Students Apply Tablets and Pen Technology to Literacy

A group of education students at the University of Texas at Austin will be experimenting with the use of Android tablets and pen technology to use in their pre-service literacy instruction in the classrooms where they student-teach. The experiment will outfit future teachers at the university’s College of Education in order to help them develop personalized instruction and interventions for their students. N-trig is donating a set of Duosense Active Pens to the project, and the college’s Learning Technology Center is distributing a fleet of pen-enabled tablets. The pen enables users to write and annotate directly on-screen as they would on a textbook or piece of paper. The pre-service teachers will use the duo to maintain digital recordings of their handwritten notes during writing conferences with students.
