CAL'07 in Dublin
26. 03. 2007The Computer Assisted Learning (CAL) biennial conference, in association with Computers & Education, and Elsevier, is one of the premier international conferences addressing technology enhanced learning. It has a proud tradition of engendering critical debate on the key challenges of concern to researchers and practitioners.
Proponents of computer assisted learning have long argued that computer technology would – or should – be disruptive in nature. They postulated that because of developments in technology, traditional models of education would not be sustainable. Just as technological development disrupted many traditional industries so too would education & learning be affected. However, despite over 20 years of development in technology enhanced learning since the advent of the PC, this revolution has not taken place. It could be argued that mainstream education, whilst it has been augmented by technology, has not been disrupted.
CAL ’07 will debate the alleged disruptive nature of technological development in the area of learning at the individual, institutional and national level in an attempt to learn from the past while designing for the future. In particular, CAL’07 will explore:
Theme 1: ICT & Learning – So What?
Theme 2: New Directions.
Track 3: Creative Expression & Learning.
Theme 4: ICT4DEV (ICT for Development Education).
In keeping with the theme of disruption, development and debate, the conference format will include not just traditional presentations but also set debates and themed symposia.
A feature of the conference will be the inclusion of a showcase element that will allow practitioners, new researchers, those involved in on-going field testing and others with an interest in new settings and uses to present work in progress. This will involve posters, live demonstrations and roundtable opportunities.
Abstracts are currently invited for oral and poster presentation at the conference and should be submitted via the Online Submission Form by 29 September 2006.
Proposals for symposia and uses of technology should be addressed directly to the programme chair. Email [email protected]
