EdTech Highlight: Creating a Modern Classroom with Wacom

EdTech is pushing the boundaries of what teachers can do to accelerate learning. Choosing new tools to evolve your lessons and better engage students can be mindboggling—the possibilities seem endless. Today’s article is part 4 of a 4-part blog series in which we’ve explored digital teaching tips for creating dynamic lessons.

Along with today’s digital teaching tip, we’ll also highlight Wacom tablets, a remote-ready tool that lets teachers incorporate interactivity into their lessons using popular educational software they may already be using.

Enhance your teaching power

Wacom tablets replace traditional whiteboard space, making it easier to teach visual topics, including STEM and Art & Design courses. You can also provide instant feedback and annotations to make learning collaborative.

All Wacom tablets work with popular educational software, including Pear Deck, OpenBoard, and Whiteboard. One by Wacom is certified “Works with Google,” complementing many 1:1 initiatives. Find out some of the ways educators are using Wacom with teaching software here.

Watch how easy it is with Wacom from a fellow teacher!

Beth Tumminello teaches high school Chemistry in Long Island New York. Beth took advantage of the transition to remote learning to enhance her teaching using her Wacom tablet. She now uses a flipped classroom model as she has found that five-minute video lectures are more efficient and class time can be used to address student questions.

Watch Beth explain how she makes her Chem lectures with Wacom.
