Wacom Tablets

Wacom (pronounced wah-come) digitizer tablets are used to provide tablet-based stylus input to the district's desktop computers. More advanced models, such as the Intuos Pro, also support multi-touch. 

Promethean Board users: As of September 2017 Wacom tablets were NOT compatible with some versions of ActivInspire beyond version 2.4, but reportedly DID work with ActivInspire 2.11.

The small size of the Intuos Draw digitizer tablet is in use in some of our schools. It is a featured reward for the top Black Belt in the district's 9-12 Kung Fu Canvas training.

The basic unit has to be tethered to the desktop computer with a USB cable, but we installed the optional Wireless Accessory Kit, which adds a battery, radio module, and USB dongle for wireless use.

Here is our district's online manual on installing and using the tablet in your classroom:

The high school art department has a few Intuos Pro digitizers.  These have more pressure levels than the Draw tablets and have built-in wireless capability.
Although written for the less capable Intuos Draw CTL-490, the district's manual has lots of information on using a Wacom tablet with various programs. See pages 6 and beyond:
