The first Chalk & Wire Scholars (CWScholars) Grant for encouraging research on electronic portfolios, data collection and reporting tools in K-12 and higher education was recently awarded to Shouhong Wang, Ph. D., Professor of Management Information Systems in the Earle P. Charlton College of Business at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.

Dr. Wang’s winning research proposal - titled “Designing Structures of E-Portfolios for Teaching and Learning Higher-Order Thinking” - will explore the relationship between eportfolios and higher-order thinking skills and the development of an ontological model for eportfolio structures to facilitate students’ higher-order thinking.

Chalk & Wire announced the CWScholars Grant program in June 2008, offering $5,000 grants to candidates to generate useful research (pure or action-oriented) for the purpose of learning improvement. Proposals for the CWScholars Grant program are accepted on an on-going basis, with grants awarded twice annually in October and April. Up to four grants will be awarded each year. Collaboration among researchers is encouraged, and the award amount could be adjusted if deemed necessary.
