The 9th International Workshop on
"Innovative Designs for Mobile and Ubiquitous Learning: 1:1 and Beyond"
Held in Conjunction with the International Conference on Computers in Education (ICCE) 2018

Location: the Bayanihan Center, Manila, the Philippines
Call for Workshop Papers
Overview and Purpose
The workshop is a follow-up of the last eighth 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 / situated 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.
Themes and Topics
This year, we particularly invite research papers focusing on the following topics (but not restricted to), and highly encourage graduate students to submit their research projects (both – completed or in progress) to the workshop. The organizers are also seeking an opportunity to publish special issues from selected workshop papers (to be confirmed).
- Analysis of Informal life-long language learning process in ubiquitous environment
- The new vision of modern life-long learner in terms of ubiquitous environment
- Implementation of learning strategies in ubiquitous learning environment
- New opportunities for collaborative learning and interactions provided by ubiquitous environment
- Pedagogical issues and national policies of technology-enhanced learning in ubiquitous environment
- Submission deadline for workshop papers: August 17, 2018
- Acceptance notification of workshop papers: September 7, 2018
- Final camera-ready version due for workshop papers: September 14, 2018
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 2018 Workshop Paper Submission".
The conference practices single-blind review, i.e., the authors of the submitting papers will not know who their referees are, while the referees will be aware of the authors of the papers that they are reviewing. Anonymization is no longer required in the submitted manuscripts.
Dr. Daner Sun is an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics and Information Technology, The Education University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong SAR, China.
