Visitors to the Division H exhibit booth #202 at the American Educational Research Association’s Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, April 9-11, will be greeted by ARNIE. Each year, the Division’s Annual Publication Award Competition is highlighted in the AERA exhibits. Entries from members conducting research, evaluation, and assessment in the schools from over 10 years can be searched, viewed, and downloaded there in the booth.
This year, 2016, the booth sponsor, ESP Solutions Group, has set up a local network for the booth’s laptops and any mobile device brought by a visitor to sign into the ARNIEdocs search engine and publications database. Anyone can explore the publication entries, award winners—current and past.
“BYOD has infiltrated the schools, so why not AERA?” says Glynn Ligon, President of ESP. “While visiting Division H’s booth, anyone can now access the years of valuable publications on any handheld device.”
Now the challenge for the next year is to encourage more of the Division H members to upload their publications—not just entries into the Annual Awards Competition—to ARNIEdocs.
