“The Impact of Pen and Touch Technology on Education”, the book that collects contributions and papers from WIPTTE 2013 (Pepperdine University) and WIPTTE 2014 (Texas A&M University), is now available as part of Springler’s Human-Computer Interaction Series.
When a paper is accepted as a full paper to the Workshop on the Impact of Pen and Touch Technology on Education (WIPTTE), it is not only peer reviewed, but it is also published as a peer reviewed book chapter. It is a well-estabilished tradition: in the past ten years Purdue University Press published a small series of extremely interesting $25-priced paperback books that explores the impact of Tablet PCs and pen-based technologies in education.
This year the new book, that collects papers from WIPTTE 2013 and 2014, has been created in a more structured (and priced) way and the result is “The Impact of Pen and Touch Technology on Education“, edited by Springer. The new hard-covered book presents perspectives for and by teachers, school/university administrators and educational researchers regarding the great impact pen and tablet technology can have on classrooms and education.
It presents three main threads of research: emerging technologies and software, first-hand perspectives of instructors and administrators who actively implement pen or tablet technologies and up-and-coming systems that provide insight into the future of pen, touch, and sketch recognition technologies in the classrooms and the curricula of tomorrow.
“The Impact of Pen and Touch Technology on Education” is now available at the price of $129 (but it can be easily bought for $90 on Amazon.com); digital and Kindle editions are available too.
