Teaching Online has never been easier with Wacom and its new software partners!

Wacom partners with leading educational software applications to provide teachers and students with the best solutions for the virtual classroom and remote learning

With many schools and universities forced to shift to online teaching, Wacom is committed to provide teachers and students with innovative solutions to tackle the challenges of remote teaching, e-learning and online collaboration. Therefore, Wacom is partnering with five leading educational software applications, that make the transition to online education as smooth as possible. The edtech solutions from Collaboard, ExplainEverything,

Kami, Limnu and Pear Deck help teachers to better navigate remote teaching. Combined with the intuitive and natural pen experience of the Wacom One pen display or Wacom Intuos pen tablet, they provide easy to use interactive whiteboards, video recording and real-time collaboration for the virtual classroom. As a bundle, Wacom and its partners offer teachers everything they need to interact naturally with their students for engaging lessons and facilitated communication. And because Wacom devices are compatible with all mayor operating systems and independent of software updates, they stay fully functional for many years – in the classroom, at home or in any other work environment.

“The pen is a powerful tool and it has been used in education for centuries,” says Faik Karaoglu, Executive Vice President of Wacom’s Branded Business. “With the world’s newly found focus on remote and digital learning, Wacom wanted to offer teachers, students and parents all the tools and resources they need to make the transition to online and digital teaching easier and stress-free. Together with these partners we bring the pen to the digital classroom and provide the right technology for teachers at a moment where it is needed most. “

 

Bringing the pen to the virtual classroom

The following 5 software applications combined with a Wacom One or Intuos bring the advantages of traditional pen and paper or marker and whiteboard to the digital classroom.
