Call for Papers  

The Interactive Learning Environments seeks original manuscripts for the
SOCIETY” scheduled to appear in a 2009 issue. The accepted articles must be
presented in the 1st World Summit on the Knowledge Society:

Ten articles will be selected for publication in this Interactive Learning
Environments special issue. 

The key objective of the special issue is to advancing the knowledge on the
interactive learning environments, in simple words the application of
information technologies and mutlidisciplinary research towards a new era of
knowledge and learning dissemination for all in the context of the
knowledger society. 

Technology enhanced learning is the best term to describe the domain of
knowledge society technologies as applied in the learning context: "Learning
for anyone, at any time, at any place”. With the shift towards the knowledge
society, the change of working conditions and the high-speed evolution of
information and communication technologies, peoples' knowledge and skills
need continuous updating. 

Learning, based on collaborative working, creativity, multidisciplinary,
adaptiveness, intercultural communication and problem solving, has taken on
an important role in everyday life. The learning process is becoming
pervasive, both for individuals and organisations, in formal education, in
the professional context and as part of leisure activities. Learning should
be accessible to every citizen, independent of age, education, social status
and tailored to his/her individual needs. To meet these social challenges is
a leading issue of research on the use of technology to support learning
(e.g. The Technology Enhanced Learning Action within the 7th Framework
Program for Research and Technological Development).
In the context of the knowledge society, the focus of research in this area
has been set on applications of technologies for user-centered learning,
building on the concept of human learning and on sound pedagogical
principles, with the key objectives to be: 
·	To increase the efficiency of learning for individuals, groups
·	To facilitate transfer and sharing of knowledge in organisations
·	To contribute to a deeper understanding of the learning process by
exploring links between human learning, cognition and technologies
·	To promote humanistic visions for a better world based on open learning
for all

This special issue in the context of the FIRST WORLD SUMMIT ON THE KNOWLEDGE
SOCIETY investigates interactive learning environments and provides a
publication outlet for leading edge research for a new emerging discipline
which stands in the converging domains of high tech technologies,
intelligent systems and technology enhanced learning and knowledge
management approaches..
