SIG Meeting: Emerging Technologies for Learning & Teaching

Tuesday, June 28 12:15 PM-1:30 PM

In areas that are defined by buzzwords such as new user interfaces, ubiquitous computing, surface computing, multi-touch technologies, wearable devices, etc., this SIG likes to discuss the scientific base of future technologies for learning and teaching. Within a sub conference the group further aims to give best-practice examples of how innovative technical solutions impact on learning and teaching. Accordingly, we especially invite innovators, technology focused and visionary people of all educational sectors to present and discuss their results with us. “Learning supported by innovative emerging technologies” best describes our goal.

The SIG addresses to give an overview of how technology enhanced learning can be supported by innovative technologies. The chair encourages researchers to submit contributions with a strong focus on technology. Bearing in mind that new devices like Apple’s iPhone or iPad as well as Android supported Smartphones and Tablets are pervading our daily life, and e-Books are more and more replacing traditional devices we like to ask for ideas how this will change education in the future.
