Teaching Chemistry with the Tablet PC

J. Ricky Cox at Murray State University has some interesting tidbits on his use of the tablet in teaching Chemistry, including an interesting “postcard” promoting the tablet and a quick intro page on Journal. There is also a Murray State U page on tablets.

    This is a really cool idea for a blog! My school gave every teacher a tablet two years ago, and it has changed the way everyone learns at our school. Some classrooms have been labeled “pilot tablet classrooms” and students in those classes get to use them in class to take notes/draw/research.

    I’m heading off to college in August, and I will definitely be getting a tablet. Any suggestions on which is the best one to get. Price pt = up to $2000 or so.

    I look forward to reading more! Alex

    I’ve got the IBM/Lenovo X41 and I’m very happy with it, even having seen the Toshiba Portege M400s my coworkers are getting, so I’d suggest the Lenovo X60. To me, the major pros are that it’s a good bit lighter than the M400 (and anything else I’ve seen around with a 12″ screen), is a bit smaller, and gets very good battery life. It doesn’t have the built-in optical drive that the M400 does, which likely accounts for the weight difference. The M400 would be my second choice since I haven’t caught any major differences among the 12″ tablets other than the X60 and I know from past experience that Toshiba makes a solid laptop.
