In this session I had some issues with the Wacom monitor’s calibration. If you’d like to view an example of the kinds of things you can do with this please check out my other classroom technology workshop where everything worked as expected. Also, I’m happy to report that after the session I ran a Wacom driver updated, rebooted the machine, and everything worked again!
