Gateway started a mobile computing revolution when we introduced Tablet PCs into the
classroom four years ago. Today, the unique combination of our convertible notebook
hardware and Microsoft’s pen-based operating system allows the technology to easily
adapt to different learning styles, including visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. Standardizing
on this flexible form factor can save schools and districts money by eliminating disparate
technology and simplifying support. More importantly, achievement can be improved
as students become active, engaged learners through the use of wireless connectivity,
a projector, and Tablet technology.

• Key Service and Support Offerings
The interaction of these components allows the students, teachers, and curriculum to
support different learning styles. TTL technology facilitates heightened interaction with
students and teachers, and connects classrooms with information, images, and meaning
through multiple resources, including the Internet.
To achieve academic excellence, the teacher must lead students to use the Tablet
technology on their convertible notebooks as a tool for:
• Communication — reading, writing, speaking, listening, and presenting/viewing.
• Research — via the Internet or the school’s LAN.
• Collaboration — with fellow students and experts inside and beyond their classroom.
• Critical Thinking — learning to analyze and synthesize rather than memorizing facts.
These learning objectives can best be met with new tools like the Gateway convertible
notebook PC, class spaces designed for collaborative learning, multiple activities, and
project-based learning that addresses state learning standards. In a TTL environment,
With the Gateway convertible notebook, you do
not have to choose either a notebook or a PC.
The system’s features include:
• Two Systems in One — A Tablet PC as well
as a Fully Equipped Notebook Computer

summative test data to drive instruction. These teachers lead their students in formative
assessment, using the Tablet technology on the convertible notebooks for immediate
feedback to determine how each learning activity needs to be adjusted to address
varied learning styles, and to maximize each student’s learning experience.
• Improved Connectivity
Through leading-edge handwriting and voicerecognition technology and devices such as the
digital pen, the Gateway convertible notebook
accommodates various forms of input, all related
to the way you and your students usually work.
