I can’t believe I never posted this. I certainly meant to. A while ago I asked Kenrick Mock if he had any suggestions for programs like Windows Journal that would run on non-tablet computers. Why would you want one? Well, students can use them to sketch a graph or write a few steps of a problem. Also, those of you with peripheral tablets (like the Wacom Bamboo) still need to have tablet software, and Windows Journal is not so easy to get if it doesn’t come with your computer. A couple of my students tried these out and said they did actually work okay.
