One of the more appealing "paper" apps I've come across is Bamboo Paper, and app that allows the user to create a variety of notebooks. These digital notebooks can be customized by colour, title and by type of paper inside (blank, lined, grid, even staff paper!)
The trouble with any sort of digital paper app I've seen to date is that one still has to use one's finger on it, the result of which tends to be a bit of a blobby mess.
Enter Bamboo Stylus, the "pen" for iPads and other tablets.
Today in the mail there arrived a small box containing several models of these neat pens, including one that acts as both a stylus and a traditional pen (neat!) and another that attaches to the iPad itself.
My head is already filled with 10 000 ideas for how these digital pens can be used with the iPad to make my job as teacher of two easier while home schooling next year... I am looking forward to stretching their capabilities to the limits, and blogging about it as I go!
