Educational Technology and its DePauw Roots Noted in Connecticut Newspaper
February 28, 2007
February 28, 2007, Greencastle, Ind. - Pen-based teaching and learning technology marketed by DyKnow "was created by a DePauw University professor who wanted to eliminate students acting merely as 'a human copy machine,'" notes Connecticut's Greenwich Time. Based on work that was started by Dave Berque, professor and chair of computer science at DePauw, "the program has since caught on at many universities across the country," and is in use at grade schools as well.
Andrew Shaw writes that DyKnow's software "transforms each tablet PC into an interactive tool that lets teachers and students connect with each other's computers to show off work and information or to communicate using instant messaging."

The system received a United States patent last year which lists Dr. Berque as the inventor.
The professor was the focus of an October 2006 feature on Indianapolis CBS affiliate WISH. Access a story that includes video clips by clicking here.Back
