Workshop on
Design Centered and Personalized Learning in Liquid and Ubiquitous

Workshop objectives
The DULP vision aims at combining Design inspired learning, Ubiquitous
learning, Liquid learning places (& liquid society), and Person in place
centred design, which shall lead to challenging technologies, rethinking
pedagogies, and being design inspired. This workshop deals with future
visions of the concepts of DULP, their interrelations and
interconnectiveness to each other, and their practical implementation in
and for Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL).

DULP@ICALT2010 intends to offer an interdisciplinary arena where everybody
can present and discuss ideas on what could be the future of TEL in the
next few years under the consideration of the DULP concepts; a future that
has to be possible and that, thus, should be closely related to the
present researches and educational processes.

The DULP@ICALT2010 should be of interest, not only for the ICALT
participants, but for all those who do not want to stop at the "simple"
development and use of technologies but consider them as the basics for
supporting innovative educational visions aimed at improving the
experience of the training process. For this it is expected that the
workshop would be of interest to all those that look at the TEL with a
strong interdisciplinary attitude, the same one that inspire the DULP
vision: technologists; educators, psychologists and sociologists and all
those that consider the technology an indispensable ally rather than a
service provider.

Looking towards the future is a challenge also for creatives and
especially for designers of virtual and physical environments dedicated to
TEL and, more in general, for people involved in educational processes,
dealing with design for the experience and with its significant qualities.

DULP@ICALT2010 is looking for authors that
a) starting from the current state of the art, are able to imagine a
realistic future of TEL that should be applicable in real contexts; b)
will present development and use of technologies able to induce a fruitful
encounter between disciplines, to the benefit of the centrality of the
learning experiences and of the expectations of the individuals.

Open list of themes that may inspire the design for the future

- Future visions and models for ubiquitous learning in liquid learning
places - New generation of virtual and physical learning place
- Balancing communities and personal identity
- Ecological detection of learning experience qualities
- From media literacy to design literacy
- ...

Workshop proceedings
All papers will be blindly peer-reviewed by three (3) reviewers.
According to the ICALT's Author Guidelines, the workshop paper should be 2
pages long (including authors' information, abstract - no more than 200
words -, all tables, figures, references, etc.) and should be written
according to the IEEE Conference Publishing Services Formatting

The accepted contributions will be included in the proceeding of ICALT
2010 and published by IEEE Computer Society Publications.

An extended version of selected workshop papers will be published in a
special issue of the IxD&A Journal (ISSN 1826-9745)
