Wacom to Present Latest Products for Interactive Education at Educause 2012

Nov 09, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Wacom, a manufacturer of pen tablets, interactive pen displays and digital interface solutions, is showcasing their variety of products at Educause 2012 for teaching professionals seeking to create and deliver dynamic and engaging digital content in the classroom.

According to a release, at booth #207/209 visitors will receive a hands-on experience to see the latest features and benefits Wacom's interactive products are bringing to the education industry.

Wacom will show how its pen displays and tablets are providing those who teach in an interactive classroom, a flipped classroom, or a distance learning scenario, an interactive way to communicate and collaborate through handwritten notes, sketches, and drawings. In addition, Wacom's professional line of products used by top art, design, animation and photography schools around the world will also be on display.

"With the ongoing evolution of teaching methods and environments, many in the education industry are focusing on finding the right technology for their specific needs," says Michael Marcum, Vice President of Vertical Markets for Wacom. "Whether looking for an alternative to costly interactive whiteboards or to update the classroom and break away from traditional instruction methods, Wacom has a digital solution to fit the growing technology requirements for educators." "Our Remote Tutoring and Mentoring program is a simple way for our volunteers to help students without physically coming to the classroom," explains Aragon Burlingham, We Teach Science Founder and President. "The e-mentoring program uses a web-based interactive whiteboard and audio connection, allowing students and mentors the flexibility of connecting from two separate locations. Using Wacom tablets, the pairs can draw graphs, solve equations and explore the applications of math and science all while miles apart. Participants in the program have shown an increase in test scores across the board." ((Comments on this story may be sent to newsdesk@closeupmedia.com))
