Education and Technology
This section of Serendip
we hope serves both as a useful resource for, and as a place for discussion by, people interested in the relations between education and rapidly developing information technology. Links to existing relevant materials on Serendip, and to relevant materials elsewhere on the web are provided. We have established a special TriCo Forum on Education and Technology
to facilitate ongoing conversations and planning at Bryn Mawr, Haverford, and Swarthmore Colleges. Other visitors are invited to contribute to our more general Science Education Forum
. Your thoughts, comments, suggestions, or longer contributions can also be sent by Serendip
