WIPTE 2007

Workshop on the Impact of Pen-based Technology on Education (WIPTE) at Purdue University, June 11-12, 2007:

WIPTE is open to anyone with an interest in instructional technology. A wide variety of disciplines are embracing Tablet PC’s and similar pen-based devices as tools for the radical enhancement of teaching and learning. This conference is intended to leverage this shared passion and to identify best practices in the educational use of pen-based computing so that all educators may benefit from this next generation of technology.

I’m thinking this might be really interesting and Purdue is pretty close to Chicago. I think I’ll have to order the monograph from last year’s WIPTE and see what it’s all about.

    Sounds cool. If I were closer, I’d probably attend.

    I attended last year – it was very good, and one of those rare moments when higher education faculty meet with K-12 teachers. There were great presentations (many from HP Technology for Teaching grant recipients!) and the exchange of information was valuable.

    I’ll be attending and hosting an international panel of higher education grant recipients. Hopefully it will bring another perspective to the discussion about using Tablet PCs to support teaching and learning.

    Hopefully I will meet some of you there!

    [...] I have mentioned it before, since Jim Vanides and Matt Faulkner posted reminders recently, I thought probably should too. [...]
