The Workshop on the Impact of Pen-Based Technology on Education (WIPTE) is accepting paper submissions for its 2009 conference. The deadline for submissions is June 15th, 2009. Submissions should describe experiences in deploying pen-based technology in educational environments. Papers will be accepted from both K12 and Higher Education institutions. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Selected papers will appear in a Monograph to be published by Purdue University Press and authors will present these papers at WIPTE 2009. Selection decisions will be announced by July 24th.
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. Each WIPTE paper presentation includes an assessment component as an important part of the presentation. The WIPTE program also includes keynote talks, poster presentations, vendor booths, panels, and special sessions.
