Pen & Touch for Education? Head to the WIPTE Conference April 28-30, Redmond, WA, USA



Teaching Science, Math, or Engineering? Then you need more than touch - you need a digital pen... and the WIPTE conference will help you and your students take full advantage of the Power of the Pen.


If you're looking for a chance to roll up your sleeves and discuss learning & teaching with tablets or other pen-enabled devices, WIPTE is the conference for you! Hosted at the Microsoft Campus in Redmond this year, the conference "...has been part of making this revolution happen by bringing together educators and students, researchers, developers, manufacturers and decision makers to look at and experience the current and coming state of the art around these technologies. WIPTTE is unique in bringing such a diverse group together to interact and share research, experiences tools, lessons learned and ideas for future directions."
