Wacom is making its intuitive and easy to use pen tablets and displays available to the growing group of Chromebook users. The One by Wacom is now the first pen tablet to receive the Works With Chromebook certification which makes it an ideal tool for students, teachers and young creatives and a useful addition to many set-ups in class or at home.
Wacom continues to expand its efforts to support the education sector with the necessary solutions and services to create teacher and student-friendly technology for the digital classroom. As a next important step, Wacom announced today that its One by Wacom pen tablet is the first Wacom device to be fully compatible with Chromebooks and holds the Works With Chromebook certification.
“Digitalization has great benefits for the education sector. But it has proven to be challenging,” says Faik Karaoglu, Executive Vice President of Wacom’s Branded Business.
As a pioneer of digital pen technology, Wacom is committed to provide teachers, students and administrators with reliable, sustainable and easy to use solutions. The new compatibility with Wacom pen tablets and displays will make creating, working and teaching digitally as natural and intuitive as possible and offer users more possibilities to work with their Chromebook.
Wacom and Chromebook take digital learning to the next level
The digital pen is a powerful tool in education. It allows teachers and students to incorporate natural handwriting for note-taking and annotation and lets them solve math problems, draw diagrams and explain themselves visually as intuitively online as they would in class on the blackboard. Especially STEAM subjects (science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics) benefit from the use of a digital pen. Recent Chromebooks are often enabled with pens that work on-screen for day to day writing and annotations. With the One by Wacom pen tablet, users now have a simple attachable accessory in case they want to upgrade or complement their Chromebooks with dedicated pen input on a separate surface than the main screen. It works with a wealth of online educational tools, so that teachers and students can easily connect, interact and collaborate from different locations and across multiple devices in real time.
To make the transition to online teaching as smooth as possible, Wacom collected a wealth of information and helpful tips on its dedicated Wacom for e-learning pages and partnered with five leading educational software applications. Collaboard, Explain Everything, Kami, Limnu and Pear Deck offer powerful interactive whiteboarding, video tutoring and online collaboration tools as learning and teaching shifts to the digital classroom. They are fully compatible with Chromebook and now part of Wacom’s dedicated education software bundles available for the One by Wacom, Wacom Intuos and Wacom One pen devices.
Combining the benefits of a One by Wacom pen tablet with the advantages of Chromebook offers students and teachers a valuable upgrade to their existing set up and provides schools with a worry-free solution – be it on premise, in hybrid scenarios or for teaching and learning from home. Chromebooks give students, teachers and administrators a simple yet powerful solution for fast, intuitive, and easy-to-manage computing. They provide access to education and collaboration resources on the internet, offer centralized management and low total cost of ownership. Wacom is working with Google to expand compatibility to include additional Wacom devices and bring more pen tablets and displays to a growing group of Chromebook users
