Description: 
Technology has long played a role in education. Some technologies such as pen and paper, chalk and blackboard, or printing are so much a part of our experiences that we no longer think of them as technology. The Educational Research Programs Group in Microsoft Research is engaged in ongoing research into the use of technologies such as Tablet PC, collaboration technologies, gaming, and robotics in education. This presentation will share results of this work, discuss the importance of using assessment to evaluate the success of the innovative application of technology in education, and a view of future plans.
