Graphics tablet

Wondering if anyone has successfully used a graphics tablet with Formative, especially for show your work? What brand/model? @Science_Educators

I used iPads with show your work a lot, @kcouchon. It is possible for the students to draw with a finger. However, it’s not possible to write with the option “text” because it doesn’t appear as a possibility (we don’t have any keyboard attached - only using the keypad on the iPad).

This is something you could consider, @david.

Another thing my students did: they did their detailed drawing with a pencil on a piece of paper and then took a photograph and imported it in show your work.

We can definitely consider this! Thanks Michael!

We are gearing up with Formative @michael.lutz @david and were discussing how best to utilize show your work in math, as well as annotating maps and diagrams in science for example. Taking pictures of notebook diagrams would certainly work. We are looking at perhaps a grant to try out some digital tablets.
