1. Making lesson preparation more efficient
Traditional teaching: Complex diagrams, formulas, documents, multimedia presentations, exam questions, exam papers, teaching aids, homework and proofs all require different equipment and are difficult to arrange together to prepare the lesson.
PendoTech Digit-Note: With the smart classroom system, you can easily retrieve and arrange information, and you can use a pen and paper to make notes on class resources in order to use prepared materials offline in class.
The teacher can write lesson content on PendoTech Digit-Note, and can also directly capture and transfer handwritten notes and diagrams on any smartphone, tablet or computer to automatically generate an electronic lesson plan.
Complex formulas, diagrams and expression - PendoTech provides teachers with a more effective digital work experience at the tip of your pen.
Once you have learnt to use information technology to prepare lessons, you will be able to use all sorts of IT teaching resources, and use or develop multimedia-assisted teaching presentations in accordance with your students’ needs. At the same time, whilst in class, you write as you teach, helping to lead students’ in their thinking, and make progress in steps, achieving a combination of subject teaching and information technology.
2. Creating a timely interactivity in the classroom
All teaching aids must take into consideration the teacher’s point of view in order to be frequently used. Teachers use pen and paper every day. PendoTech Digit-Note can display writing as it is written, and is not restricted like a computer on the teacher’s podium.
Teaching through handwriting on a blackboard is the normal method; it is easy and convenient, and causes no harm to students’ eyes.
PendoTech Digit-Note allows the teacher, without abandoning traditional pen and paper, to see what every student is writing, and realistically see each students’ level of understanding, whilst removing the disadvantages of raising hands to answer questions, such as students being worried about losing face or going with the flow. Without even realising it, students and teachers are achieving in-class interaction without changing current teaching methods.
With only pen, paper, and the help of a computer, you can record the best moments of a lecture through an easy and stress-free recording function. You can capture the key points, topics raised and notes written on the blackboard by the teacher, and automatically generate a fragmented recording of a class, with up to 20MB per class for convenient cloud sharing and playback, so students can revise what they need, forming an effective micro-class.
3. Complete solutions for home and schoolwork
Using PendoTech Digit-Note, teachers can write and draw on paper, simultaneously synchronising it with a computer or mobile client to create a micro-class, allowing explanations of questions and key points to be recorded in a realistic and personalised way and stored as streaming media, making the recording experience simpler and easier. Reduces the burden on teachers of having to teach the same thing multiple times, with key points, assessed work, difficulties and questions being explained only once, before being shared by everyone.
Micro-classes can be used as a tool for preparing for classes, revising and checking understanding. Before going to a new class, students can prepare by watching the micro-class; after class, they can revise with a micro-class; and they can use the micro-class to correct their mistakes.
For paper-based homework, the teacher can use a marking program (we recommend using the “Jieling” teaching system) to rapidly collect data from the paper-based homework and automatically mark, correct yes-no questions, and use smart statistics to show the students’ error rate. This not only helps teachers mark paper-based homework, but also saves teachers’ comments without changing their traditional paper-based marking habits, helping teachers to adapt their teaching by analysing what students need to study for truly individualised learning, greatly reducing teachers’ workload and increasing teaching efficiency.
