Modern technologies open endless possibilities for science teaching and learning at all levels. One of them is an electronic pen technology utilized in tablet computers. Hewlett Packard – a leader in the field of tablet technologies – provides science educators all over the world, interested in transforming their teaching via utilizing tablet computers, with exciting educational innovations grant opportunities. HP has a number of grants for K-12 teachers, as well as college and university faculty, that amount to more than $80,000 (U.S.). The recipients of the HP Higher Education Educational Innovation Grant will receive 21 tablet computers, a large computer screen, computer projector, special HP poster printer and a convenient movable cart for the tablets. In addition, grant winners will get $20,000 US for educational research and will be invited to a special HP conference on educational technology. This is a unique opportunity for Canadian science educators, as well as for science educators all over the world. As past HP Educational Technology Grant recipients we would like to share our experience with our implementation of the tablet technology in science teaching (HP Mobile Science Lab) as well as share our experiences of grant application and implementation with the potential grant applicants.
