Why tablets and smartphones are the new pencils and pens

We’re all used to taking notes with ink and lead, but maybe it’s time to update this technology. After all, pencils and pens can’t take pictures, can’t look up information on the internet and definitely can’t improve your students’ social skills and participation level. Worst of all, if your students lose, rip, or forget their notes at school, there’s no way to access them. Engage your students better while giving them the gift of permanency by allowing smartphones and iPad. check out our comparison of note-taking materials below:
