This March, Anne-Marie Mann will attend the Workshop on the Impact of Pen and Touch Technology in Education (WIPTTE 2014) in College Station, Texas. This conference focuses on the potential of pen and touch-based computing in education environments. Now in its 8th year, approximately 150 participants from industry, academia and education travel to WIPTTE to share their tools, experiences and ideas using this new hands-on technology. This year the Keynote Speakers are Barbara Tversky (Columbia University) and Randall Davis (MIT) .
Anne-Marie has been awarded a registration scholarship and will present her paper “Digital Pen Technology’s Suitability to Support Handwriting Learning“, co-authored with Uta Hinrichs and Aaron Quigley, during the conference. Anne-Marie hopes that the conference will provide an opportunity for open discussion regarding her recent study and research interests that will prove useful during future projects.
