So I gave my first undergrad lecture for 4 years today. Also my first at current-workplace, my first attempting to teach maths to engineers rather than physics to physicists, and the first to last two hours, but that's another story. But it was also, and this is the blogworthy bit, my first use of exciting new technology: powerpoint + tablet PC. You can make powerpoint slides and then you can write on them! In the lecture! How cool is that! etc etc.

So it all goes fine except that I keep indicating stuff to the students by pointing at the screen of the tablet PC with my fingers, which of course they can't see. I can't figure out why I'm doing this. Then some time after the end of the lecture it dawns on me:

The relevant bit of my brain thinks the slides are acetates and the tablet PC is an OHP.

1990 called, they want their teaching method back...
