This project is investigating how the combination of pen-based computing and wireless communication can enhance current classroom practices and foster new practices that expand student learning in STEM disciplines. This work builds off of the NSF-funded exploratory study INK-12: Interactive Ink Inscriptions in K-12 (NSF Collaborative DRL-0822278 and DRL-0822055) that examined the role that pen-based wireless computing could have in 4th and 8th grade science and math classrooms.

In partnership with MIT, project researchers will work with 4th and 5th graders in three Massachusetts districts to further study pen-based wireless technology and its potential to support students’ math and science learning. Among the topics they will study are: 

A small cadre of teachers will be involved as co-designers of the software, which will be developed through a implement/test/revise cycle.
