Call for paper - IxD&A ( Interaction Design and Architecture(s) ) Journal
(ISSN 1826-9745) - special issue on
"Design Centered and Personalized Learning in Liquid and Ubiquitous
Learning Places (DULP):
Future Visions and Practical Implementations"
Carlo Giovannella, University of Rome Tor Vergata - ScuolaIaD, Italy
Sabine Graf, Athabasca University, Canada
The special issue is intended to investigate further the practical
implications of DULP vision on the future of TEL and to give the
opportunity to participate in the debate also to those who could not
attend the DULP@ICALT2010 workshop.
According to the objectives of the DULP@ICALT2010 Workshop the special
issue of the IxD&A Journal intends to offer an interdisciplinary arena
where everybody can present and discuss ideas on what could be the future
of TEL (Technology Enhanced Learning) 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
We remind that the DULP vision aims at combining Design inspired learning,
Ubiquitous learning, Liquid learning places (& liquid society), and Person
in place centered design, which shall lead to challenging technologies,
rethinking pedagogies, and being design inspired.
This special issue should be of interest 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 special issue 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.
This special issue 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
