1: My stylus is more than a pen

Since the SP3 has three buttons I always explain interested teachers in my OneNote workshops, that this tool is more like a mouse. So you can do a lot more than just writing with it!… Visit the author's original post

Learning to draw…

So there is a great song by Tom Petty called “Learning to fly” and I can really say that I have tried a lot of different things in my life, because I am very curious. But like flying there is one thing, that I will never ever learn: DRAWING!
I have tried a lot of times to get things right and get the correct proportions, but it seems to me, that – like flying – drawing is something I am not going to learn!… Visit the author's original post

Office with a Stylus: The final words (Video and Sway!)

OfficeWithStylusTitleGraphic

When you have a Tablet PC such as the Surface Pro 3, it is really easy to get stuck using OneNote for everything. After all, the two are a perfect match. But – there are plenty of other applications out there that can very effectively leverage the stylus. In this four part series I’m going to look at Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Outlook, giving real life examples of how I have used the stylus in the software for my classes, and then a quick how to guide if you want to get out and give it a go.Visit the author's original post

OneNote: 10 things I hate about you

All written with my tongue firmly in my cheek!  You’ll actually, I hope, find 10 little tips, tricks and how to guides.… Visit the author's original post

On the eighth day of Christmas my true love gave to me, a Screen Beam to project wirelessly.

Happy New Year!

Of the technological devices that I got in 2014, the two that changed my day to day classroom practice most were the Microsoft Surface Pro 3, and the Actiontec Screen Beam. I’ve already spoken at length about the SP3, as it is the keystone to everything I do, so today is all about the Screen Beam.

The Actiontec Screen Beam is a wireless receiver (using both the Miracast and WiDi protocols) that connects to any HDMI video input (including sound!), or any display port or VGA with an appropriate adapter.… Visit the author's original post
