ThinkSpace is an experimental new technology designed and developed at ISU. Modeled on Diagnostic Pathfinder, it’s designed to have wider applications to different disciplines of study, and ISU is trying to garner national interest in the technology. “Systems that we’ve built here allow faculty and students to interact in a problem-solving format,” said Jim Twetten, director of IT services in academic technologies at ISU. “This system provides a way to present a set of problems, and it tracks the students through the process in such a way that faculty can guide them through the process.” Twetten said a group of faculty on campus is excited in the teaching and learning possibilities of ThinkSpace.
