With grants from the Hewlett-Packard Catalyst Initiative and the National Science Foundation, Northwestern University has acquired HP tablet laptop computers and Fourier sensors that will be available for temporary loan to Chicago area schools. The goal of this project is to increase the use of technology in math and science classrooms and to facilitate access to online laboratories, such as the iLabs network (www.ilabcentral.org).
This summer, teachers from the Chicago area participated in a workshop to learn how to use the HP tablets and Fourier probeware. They wrote hands-on classroom activities for their middle and high school courses which you can view here.
See students and teachers from Chicago area schools using the HP tablets to do online iLabs and other OSEP-developed curricula.
