"Inking" at UTN (Argentina) - another story about the impact of Tablet PCs on students

Looking for another example of how "inking" matters? Uriel Cukierman, Professor and CIO at UTN (Argentina), shared his story with HP.

The faculty at UTN have been using Pocket PCs, and now Tablet PCs. They, like so many other campuses, have found the graphical response interaction made possible by Classroom Presenter to be invaluable. Some quotes from the article:

Students’ heightened engagement in the electrical
engineering class was also palpable: they now
lingered in the room well after the lecture. “They
wanted to spend more time on the material,” says
Professor Cukierman. “They had become more excited
about the coursework, and so were more deeply
motivated to learn.”

“They told us it was easier for them to learn the
coursework this way than in classes without the
technology. So as it turned out, inking was the single
most transformative function in the entire project.”
