Registration & Housing


CPTTE (formerly WIPTTE) is open to anyone with an interest in instructional technology. We have had active participation from K-12 schools, colleges, and universities. Tablets and other pen- and touch-based devices are being embraced as superior tools for the new approaches to teaching and learning that are emerging. This conference is intended to leverage this shared passion in research and to identify best practices in the educational use of pen-based computing an touch features. CPTTE paper presentations generally includes an important assessment component. In previous years, WIPTTE programs have also included keynote talks, poster presentations, vendor booths, panels, and special sessions.

CPTTE 2016 will be held on the campus of Brown University in Providence, RI USA from March 31 - April 2, 2016.  


Registration information will be posted once it is available.
