The workshop becomes a conference, the WIPPTE becomes CPTTE

Scritto da Giacomo Fumagalli. Pubblicato in Students, Tablet PC Education, Teachers

Since 2006, the WIPTTE has been one of the most important reference point for teachers and educators that use Tablet PCs in the classroom. To reflect the event’s increased breadth and size, its name is now Conference on Pen and Touch Technology in Education (CPTTE).

Since 2006, the Workshop on the Impact of Pen and Touch Technology on Education (WIPTTE) has been a extremely important event for educators, teachers, students and school/university administrators, a place where share knowledge and experience.

The WIPTTE has been a unique, diverse gathering in which to interact, try using prototypes and tools, share lessons learned and exchange ideas for future directions. Every years, the workshop has been hosted into a different US university – Virginia Tech, Purdue, Pepperdine, Texas A&M – but last year’s workshop was in the Microsoft Campus in Redmond: since the beginning Microsoft is one of the major sponsor of the event. Each conference brings approximately 150 participants from industry and academia (including researchers, developers, and users), including K-12 teachers and students who share their tools, experiences, ideas, and innovative research.

During the years a lot of things changed: Apple’s iPad Pencil has joined Microsoft’s Surface Pen and styluses offered by Fujitsu, Lenovo, Samsung and other manufacturers. Together with new touch technologies and pedagogical approaches that build on these technologies, declining prices and rising capabilities put us in a new era with dramatic implications for education.

CPTTE 2016 Brown University

To reflect the event’s increased breadth and size, the name is now Conference on Pen and Touch Technology in Education (CPTTE). It is not the first time that the conference change its name: until 2012, it was just WIPTE (Workshop on the Impact of Pen Technology on Education) and the second “T” has been inserted because of the success of iPads and stylus-less Windows devices.

The first CPTTE – the tenth WIPTTE – will be hosted at Brown University in Providence, RI, USA, starting March 31. Additional information are available on the official website.
