The 2015 Workshop on the Impact of Pen and Touch Technology in Education (WIPTTE) seeks papers that report on the impact of pen and touch interfaces across education settings, including both formal and informal learning environments. WIPTTE 2015 will take place on April 28-30, 2015 at the Microsoft campus in Redmond, Washington, USA. WIPTTE, an independent conference with multiple sponsors, has previously been hosted by universities. For 2015, the WIPTTE conference steering committee accepted a Microsoft invitation to host the conference, which will coincide with Microsoft digital ink and touch-related announcements that pertain to educational research and applications.
In the past few years, pen and touch enabled tablet computers have been changing the face of education. Since 2006, The Workshop on the Impact of Pen and Touch Technology in Education (WIPTTE) 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.
