Call for Workshop Papers
Overview and Purpose
This workshop is a follow-up of the last five ICCEs’ workshops of the same title. The advancement of personal computing devices, from personal computers to mobile devices, has been gradually changing the landscape of the technology-transformed learning. This facilitates the incorporation of one-to-one computing into education and opens up endless possibilities of the design and enactment of innovative teaching and learning models (or the enhancement of pre-existing models), such as perpetual and ubiquitous learning, personalized learning, authentic and contextualized learning, seamless learning, rapid knowledge co-construction, among others. This leads to the further empowerment of the learners in deciding what, where, when, and how they would learn, and whom they would learn with/from. After the initial hype, however, there have been voices within the researcher community to reassess the notion of one-to-one computing in classroom and informal learning, such as whether one-to-one settings may impact peer collaboration and teachers' roles, the issues of student and social readiness, as well as the explorations of alternative or hybrid settings of many-to-one, one-to-many, many-to-many, and one-to-one configurations.
The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum where international participants can share knowledge, experiences and concerns on the one-to-one technology-transformed learning and explore directions for future research collaborations.
This year, we invite research papers focusing on the following themes and topics (but not restricted to), and highly encourage graduate students to submit their research work (completed or work-in-progress) to the workshop:
- Formal and informal learning processes with mobile technologies
- Lifelong and lifewide learning in a ubiquitous learning environment
- Design, implementation and evaluation of mobile learning applications
- Innovative learning design integrating emerging types of technologies (e.g., sensor/gesture technologies, data mining, AR, etc)
- Empirical study on mobile technologies to enhance 21st century skills
- National policies on technology-transformed learning
- Successful examples of large-scale implementation of technology-transformed learning
- A critical review on challenges and future directions of technology-transformed learning
The list above is not exhaustive. In particular, we invite contributions that provide critical reviews, lessons learned, and new perspectives of technology-transformed learning for building a future research agenda.
- Submission deadline for workshop papers: August 31, 2015 (Extended)
- Acceptance notification of workshop papers: September 10, 2015
- Final camera-ready version due for workshop papers: September 24, 2015
You may submit a long paper (8-10 pages) or a short paper (5-6 pages). Please refer to the submission guidelines before submitting your papers. For past authors of ICCE, please note that the paper template has been substantially revised. Do download the LATEST VERSION of the Paper-Template-File in preparing your manuscript.
Please submit your paper by email as an attachment to email@example.com, with the subject title "ICCE 2015 Workshop Paper Submission".
Each paper will be reviewed by at least 2 reviewers. All accepted papers will appear in one volume of workshop proceedings with ISBN and will be indexed by Elsevier Bibliographic Database.
