A wide variety of disciplines are embracing Tablet PCs and similar pen-based devices as tools for the radical enhancement of teaching and learning. The Workshop on the Impact of Pen-based Technology on Education (WIPTE) was first held in 2006 to leverage this shared passion and to identify best practices in the educational use of pen-based computing. This monograph shares work presented at the Fifth Workshop on the Impact of Pen-based Technology on Education, held at Virginia Tech in October 2010. The papers and abstracts contained in the monograph discuss a variety of techniques for supporting teaching and learning through the use of pen-based technology across disciplines, grade levels, and countries. By sharing this information broadly, the editors hope that the workshop's impact will extend far beyond the attendees. The monograph is organized in two sections. The first section includes fifteen full-length, peer-reviewed papers that report on the use of pen-based technology in a range of educational settings. Each paper includes evaluation data to help the reader appreciate the effectiveness of the work. The second section includes fifteen short abstracts that summarize the keynote talks and other presentations that rounded out the 2010 WIPTE program. Taken as a whole, the monograph identifies best practices with regard to using pen-based technologyùpractices that the reader can apply to his or her own work.

The tablet PC and similar pen-based devices are being embraced by a wide variety of disciplines as tools for the radical enhancement of teaching and learning. Deployments of Tablet PCs span all the K-12, higher education, and graduate levels and deal with an amazingly diverse range of subject areas, including geology, writing, mathematics, computer science, Japanese language, physics, engineering, business, economics, and technical communications. Despite the diversity of content areas, many deployments generate a singular passion among students and teachers. In April of 2006, a group of educators gathered to exchange ideas at the First Workshop on the Impact of Pen-based Technology on Education (WIPTE). The editors have selected a subset of papers that were presented at WIPTE for inclusion in this book. The papers have been selected for their broad appeal, diverse content, and insightful evaluations. The collective experiences of these authors will help the reader to identify best practices with regard to the educational use of pen-based computing.
