Use a plastic opening tool to pry the back case from the WorkPad. If the rear cover is not coming off very easily, you probably need to reheat the case in order to sufficiently melt the glue.

If the back case has already been removed, carefully place it on the WorkPad to protect the circuitry inside from the heat. Using the hair dryer, slowly heat the edges of the device. Spend at least 1 minute on each side, thoroughly heating the case. The LCD/Digitizer combo is very sensitive to heat, and can easily be ruined if it is directly exposed to the hair dryer. Verify that the screen is face down.
