Lora passed along this link about HP’s technology grant program. They awarded a total of 170 academic institutions: 5 Tablet PCs, 5 projectors, 5 all-in-one printers, software, and cash. Total value: $35,000 per team.
For example, instructors at Chandler-Gilbert Community College in Chandler, Ariz., will integrate HP Tablet PCs into a redesign of engineering and mathematics courses to increase retention of students who struggle with traditional lecture methodology. The HP Tablet PCs will allow students to engage in lectures through conceptual questions and problems, virtual simulations, real-world examples and simulated labs. They also will enable instructors to gain instant feedback from students, evaluate comprehension and immediately restructure lectures according to student need.
