In kindergarten, most of our learning time takes place at the carpet all together, or in small groups with the teacher. To show our thinking, we often use individual whiteboards, markers and old socks for erasers (yes, old socks!). Whiteboards tend to only last through a couple years of students, the markers have a very short lifespan (their lids are not always replaced correctly) and the socks are just weird! In addition, whiteboards and markers are boring black and white, making our work not exciting to share. Kids often end up writing on theirs, or other's clothing with the markers, and my carpet usually has many black marks by the end of the year. With the whiteboard markers, kids can't push too hard or it ruins the tip, making the markers not helpful in teaching various means of applying pressure to create different strokes. The LCD writing tablets would turn our individual work time into a glowing academic skill! They would allow students to create lines of different thickness (based on how hard they push), just like writing with paper and pencil, helping to work on those fine-motor needs. With LCD writing tablets, we can do our work in colorful, glowing ways, without making a mess on the ground or each other. It would inspire more creativity in their work, and a desire to want to share their thinking. Another pro to LCD writing tablets vs whiteboards is storage and distribution. To store 30+ whiteboards, markers and socks, 3 tubs are needed. I assign one student to each tub to pass them out and then collect them. With the LCD writing tablets, the "pencil" and "eraser" are attached, meaning 1 tub, and 1 person! This project could add up to 10 extra minutes of learning time! Win Win!
