Technology Faculty News
Professors Deanna Gordon and Maryann Gallant recently conducted an all-day special interest group, for the NorthEast Regional Computing Program (NERCOMP) entitled, Defining Technology Literacy in Higher Education. The event was facilitated by posing a series of questions where participants worked in groups and then shared their responses, thoughts and opinions with the whole. The group (comprised of participants from 2 and 4 year colleges) discussed what technology literacy means to them and their institutions. After the discussion, the following definition was created: Technology literacy is the ability to choose and use the appropriate tool to problem solve, think critically, collaborate, communicate, evaluate and create.
Professor Ron Krawitz was recently nominated and elected a Senior Member of the IEEE. Senior member is the highest grade for IEEE members requiring the candidate to be an engineer, scientist, educator, technical executive, or originator in IEEE-designated fields for at least 10 years and have demonstrated at least 5 years of significant contribution to the field.
Professor Krawitz was also one of eleven university professors invited to attend Apple Computer's Cocoa Camp Pro. Apple selected these professors for their ability to develop coursework and curricula for portable devices. Prof Krawitz also attended Visual Studio Live where he participated in Microsoft, Nokia, and Xamarin forums on Portable Device Development. The ubiquitousness of portable devices has elevated the importance of producing quality useful applications for them, and Prof Krawitz is developing courses and curricula to bring Curry to the forefront of Portable Device Development.
In addition, Professor Krawitz has joined the Boston Code Camp organizing committee. Code Camp is a free, 1-day event put on by the community to help promote software development in the community. Code Camp is a form of an "unconference". Code Camps are free to attend, do not take place during the typical workweek, and do not disclose attendee contact information to sponsors. Code Camps are for and about the local or regional professional IT development community. Presenters are typically members of the community. Presentation topics are suggested by attendees, and often presented by those who originally suggest them.
