Student use of iPads in the classroom has increased steadily over the last 5 years. This presentation will look at one Chemistry professor’s journey into the world digital notes with a student as his guide. Is paper and pencil dead? How has use of tablets in the classroom transformed student note taking and learning? What limitations exist with current note taking platforms and how accessible are tablets to all Wake Forest students? Demonstration and descriptions of some of these tools will be explored, as will implications for students in classrooms that have a zero-tolerance policy on digital devices for note taking.
