In physics, I can use the tablet to take down data in lab. The numbers are taken directly into excel while pictures are taken to supplement written observations.
The final product is robust, complete with results and observations before I even leave the lab. Error analyses and statistical analyses are easily completed in only a short amount of time after completing the lab.
In taxonomy, while in the lab or on field trips, I can take photos of plants and poin out their distinguishing features to help me later identify and group similar species. 103 IDs? No problem, especially when you can automatically coordinate recordings the professors’ notes along with each picture! If I need to create an herbarium, I already have pictures of plants that are not only grouped by location and elevation, but the pictures are complete with distinguishing features, and many are already identified!
Drama: Create storyboards to accompany a script. Record practices (bookmarking important changes) and show back to actors to help them understand the audience’s view. Actors can write custom stage directions directly into the e-script. They can have a picture of the stage and audio record the read-through so they can run their lines even if there is no one else there. Talk about having an edge.
Engineering: Use CAD programs anywhere, in class, at home, everywhere. Digitize very quickly with ESRI’s ArcGis. Even annotate maps with their Penabled software
English and Creative Writing: Let someone edit your paper on the tablet so you can know exactly where their comments were intended (superimposing script allows your document to maintain its integrity while writing can be layered directly on top of it).
