Program

CPTTE 2017 website is now live at www.cptte2017.org

 

All events will take place on Brown University's Sciences Park  - in MacMillan Hall (167 Thayer Street) and the Watson Center for Information Technology, aka the CIT (115 Waterman Street) except for the evening events, which will be held in the Faunce House Kasper Mutlipurpose Room (75 Waterman Street). Shuttle information is included in the schedule below; information about getting to and parking at Brown can be found at https://www.brown.edu/about/visit.

The 2016 CPTTE Program will be packed with paper presentations, panels, keynotes, sponsor talks, and You-Try-Its where you can try out software for yourself. The keynote talks will be given by Rob Baker, Bill Buxton, Tracy Hammond, and Jeff Han. You-Try-Its will include software tools for media making, shared visual representations, sketch worksheets for spatial learning, and Mechanix, a truss and free body diagram tutoring system.

Papers cover topics such as One Note usage in classrooms, shared workspace collaboration, analysis of interactions with pen and touch interfaces, language learning, and real time assessments. The papers address tools for young learners, elementary and middle school students, high school students, and beyond. The domains addressed are equally diverse, including digital circuits, graphs, flash cards, food chemistry, geographic information systems, and children's stories.

The sponsor talks promise to be exciting as the community hears the latest from Wacom, Fujitsu, OneNote, Surface, and Microsoft Research.

Presentation lengths: 

  • All long papers – 25 minutes presentation + 5 minutes of Q&A
