I have a question for the community here: I have an older iPad Air 2 which fits my needs perfectly well as I use my MacBook Air for most of my work-related tasks. I’m an elementary school teacher and in Los Angeles we are delivering instruction remotely. As for distance learning, we will have the option of using either Zoom or Google Meets. I prefer Zoom and like its virtual whiteboard. I’d like to use my iPad to write on the virtual whiteboard as using a trackpad on the MacBook Air or even a mouse simply is too cumbersome. Are there digital pens that can be used with my older iPad, and will I be able to write effectively for students to take notes. Or do I need to upgrade to a newer model to get the benefits? I also looked at the Surface Go, but as a longtime Mac user, I prefer to stick with Apple.
