Using a tablet for notesWatch this thread
Well worth it, and it automatically uploads to Dropbox/Google Drive as a PDF, plus if you have recorded sound it uploads that too.
If you have got the money, I would say to go for the iPad. It is a very good tablet and it does has a good use in other areas other than taking notes. I've heard mixed things about the Surface.
You could become a theft target with a tablet. If you do decide to buy one, don't have it on show everywhere. Just make your notes in class and don't show it off. Also, I dunno if it's just a thing at my school but people frown upon those who bring laptops/tablets into school. They say it's unnecessary.
I bought my daughter the same for sixth form and she uses it all the time
I do not use it for typing as the laptop is easier but she does
I also have an app that I can hand-write and it changes it to text which I use for minutes in meetings that I have to send out
The iPad does have good apps to take notes like iPages that syncs to icloud for backup.
A friend of mine recently mentioned the idea of using a tablet, such as an iPad or a Surface, to make notes in sixth form.
I just wanted to know if anyone's tried it, and if so, how is it? Obviously there's issues like theft or damage; has anyone had any such an experience? Lastly, which is the best tablet for note-taking in your opinion?
