WIPTE 2006: DyKnow DyKnow everywhere
It is high time that I learnt about DyKnow... its been a subject of discussion and expenditure in many areas.
This particular session is The Calf Path*: One University's Experience with Pen-enabled Technologies where a Title III Strengthening Institutions grant for $1.7 million focused on infusing technology into general education courses was awarded to UCA in October 2001.
Here is the full paper from U of Central Arkansas:
So, what's new for me? Not the technology but this animal that I encountered: A title III grant:
The purpose of the Title III grant is to accomplish a twofold goal: to infuse technology into instruction while simultaneously enhancing interaction among all classroom participants.
Having seen the Winona State presentation and then this presentation, it looks like smaller institutions have much more maneuverability, as Universities. As a University, UM is big and decentralized and a lot will depend on how our decentralized units choose to believe and think. the eLearning retreat should be a critical milestone - no points for saying that.
