Welcome!

Conference on Pen and Touch Technology in Education
Hosted by Northwestern University
October 12 – October 14, 2017
Hilton Garden Inn, 1818 Maple Avenue, Evanston, IL

Applications of ink-based computing – such as those from current tablet devices – have demonstrated advantages over traditional keyboard/mouse interfaces for promoting student learning and effective educational practice. These applications motivate a new landscape, in which such interfaces will alter the use of technology and enable more effective collaboration and learning experiences.

The Conference on the Impact of Pen and Touch Technology in Education (CPTTE) seeks to bring educators, researchers and technology administrators under one roof for a period of three days to discuss the novel interfaces and applications that are being developed in the space of pen and touch technology, and the successes, the failures and the challenges faced in deploying such technology (software or hardware) in educational environments.
