Apple and Microsoft Now Offer $100 Styluses. But Do Schools Need—or Want—Them?


And Lenovo’s higher-end 500e Chromebook includes a stylus, while its $300 model, the 300e, can actually use any instrument—from regular pencils to paper clips—to interact with the screen. Recently, Galanis began personally piloting Lenovo’s touchscreen 500e Chromebook with plans to introduce either that device or the less expensive 300e to all students in grades 2-8 next fall. His district has been using them since 2003 with all 5th through 12th grade students.
