Kaminski will demonstrate how to use a tablet PC with onscreen capabilities of writing in PowerPoint.  When he teaches, he solves various maths problems by writing or drawing onscreen inside the "basic" Lecture Notes, and then converts the pptx file into a pdf with digital ink for distribution among students.  PowerPoint slides can easily be shared and written on during a Zoom meeting with a special pen.  

What you need to teach with a tablet: (1) A PC tablet (a.k.a. convertible or 2-in-1) laptop and (2) Microsoft PowerPoint (regular version works fine).  He did some research and added a few interesting tablets to an Amazon list https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2PWSZU0Q3K0SV?ref_=wl_share.  From there, he ordered Lenovo Flex that seems like a good bargain https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B07TWHYTSQ/?coliid=I26DDJ4WBXGWQM&colid=2PWSZU0Q3K0SV&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it  Here is a YouTube review https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uwOlZh9spdo. For 15 years, he has been using a few Lenovo Thinkpads that are similar to Flex and the experience was good.
