Respecting the christmas holidays, the New Year celebrations, and several requests by authors, we have extended the submission deadline.
CD4TEL 2011 – Computational Design for Technology Enhanced Learning is a technical session organized as part of the International Conference on Computational Science and its Applications (ICCSA 2011). Papers will be published as part of the conference proceedings by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.
Background: Providing computational design support for orchestration of activities, roles, resources, and systems in Technology-Enhanced Learning (TEL) is a complex task. It requires integrated thinking and interweaving of state-of-the-art knowledge in computer science, human-computer interaction, pedagogy, instructional design and curricular subject domains. Consequently, even where examples of successful practice or even standards and specifications like IMS Learning Design exist, it is often hard to apply and (re)use these efficiently and systematically. This interdisciplinary technical session aims to bring together practitioners and researchers from diverse backgrounds such as computer science, education, and cognitive sciences to share their proposals and findings related with the computational design of activities, resources and systems for TEL applications.
Topics: CD4TEL is seeking original, unpublished work on topics of relevance to methods, languages, applications and tools for supporting system design and learning design in technology enhanced learning.
