Synopsis

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. Deployments of Tablet PCs have spanned the K-12, undergraduate, and graduate levels and have dealt with an amazingly diverse range of subject areas including nursing, veterinary science, geology, ethno-musicology, anthropology, landscape architecture, writing, mathematics, computer science, Japanese language, physics, engineering, art, economics, as well as others. Despite the diversity of content areas, many deployments have been similar in terms of the passion they have generated among students and teachers. This work, stemming from the Second Workshop on the Impact of Pen-based Technology on Education (WIPTE) is aimed at identifying best practices in the educational use of pen-based computing so that all educators may benefit from this next generation of technology.

Dave Berque is professor and chair of computer science at DePauw University. He has published more than 20 refereed journal and conference papers and has received several grants from the National Science Foundation. Dave's pen-based computing projects have been discussed in a variety of venues including CNN, The New York Times, and The Chronicle of Higher Education Jane Prey is a Program Manager at Microsoft Research, External Research and Programs. She spent 11 years as a faculty member in the Computer Science Department at the University of Virginia. In addition, Jane spent two years as a Program Director in the Division of Undergraduate Education at the National Science Foundation. Rob Reed is a University Relations Representative at Hewlett-Packard with twelve years of experience in the fields of engineering and technology. Prior to joining Hewlett-Packard, Rob worked in a similar capacity at Microsoft. Rob has worked for Deloitte Consulting and taught technology to undergraduates at Indiana University.
