At the 2016 CPTTE Conference on Pen and Touch Technology on Education, five expert researchers and educators spoke at a panel in front of the audience of CPTTE attendees where they discussed past influences and future directions. The members of the panel were, as seated from left to right, were Bill Buxton, Tracy Hammond, Andy van Dam, Kimberle Koile, and Thomas (Tom) Stahovich. The discussion also included comments and questions from Ken Forbus (2017 CPTTE conference chair), Jonathan Grudin (2015 CPTTE conference chair), and Aaron Adler (2014–2017 Paper Chair). Topics included sketch forensics applied to education, representation fidelity, ubiquity, domain-specific versus domain-independent, accessibility concerns, funding concerns, and future directions. Special attention was also spent discussing ink accessibility and how it might improve the lives of those facing disability.



The speakers especially thank Dr. Anna Stepanova, Dr. Tracy Hammond, Dr. Jan Hammond, and Mark Payton for their help in this transcription as well as Lisa Manokofsky for her help in providing the videos for translation.
