Reviving Traditional Forestry with HP Technology

Welcome to the Reviving Traditional Forestry with HP Technology project website!

In May 2008, the University of Kentucky (Department of Forestry) was "selected as one of 39 two- and four-year colleges and universities in the United States and Puerto Rico to receive a 2008 HP Technology for Teaching grant, which is designed to transform teaching and improve learning in the classroom through innovative uses of technology." - University of Kentucky College of Agriculture news article.

 

 

The Reviving Traditional Forestry with HP Technology project will provide University of Kentucky forestry undergraduate students with three redesigned courses that maximize the use of mobile technology so students can learn forestry concepts in both the field and classroom. Students will benefit from this project by using mobile technology with simulation software to visualize spatial and temporal aspects of a forest landscape while in the forest. Students will travel to different locations throughout the state and use the mobile technology to effectively communicate and demonstrate real-world forestry issues to various stakeholders.

Through this website you can find information about the Reviving Traditional Forestry with HP Technology project, people involved on the project, and the three redesigned courses.
