Tablet PC Technology, Curriculum, and Higher Education 2005 RFP


You still have time to meet the deadline of December 19, 2005, for submitting a proposal in response to the Microsoft Tablet PC Technology, Curriculum, and Higher Education 2005 request for proposals (RFP).

The Tablet PC significantly changes the way students and teachers interact. This new technology has the potential to dramatically alter the educational process. The ability to write, sketch, draw, or annotate using electronic ink and drawing tools; to share results instantaneously; or to collaborate in real time adds new dimensions to classroom interaction.

We are just beginning to learn how to maximize these new communication and collaboration resources. When adding the Tablet PC technologies to undergraduate education, we must rethink how this will improve teaching and learning.
