BULLETIN OF THE TECHNICAL COMMITTEE ON LEARNING TECHNOLOGY (ISSN 2306-0212)

Special Theme: 
SENSOR-BASED LEARNING SUPPORT AND TECHNOLOGIES
publication of IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on
Learning Technology (TCLT) 

* Guest editor: Marcus Specht, Open Universiteit Nederland.
* Deadline for submission: May 31, 2014

Making use of available data to track learners and their learning progress
is at the core of many computer based educational systems. This is
especially the case for adaptive educational systems which use this
data/information for adaptive, user-centred instruction, personalization of
interaction with the learner and formative/summative assessment. 

While the idea of using sensors has often been used in physical and advanced
sports training, life logging and sensor tracking applications are beginning
to make their way into a wide range of application fields as health,
nutrition, life-style, fitness, sleep, and productivity. New kinds of
sensor-devices support users in monitoring their health, weight, sleep
behavior and other aspects of their daily lives. Technically it is possible
to track stationary activities, geo-spatial movements, physical activities
(for amount and intensity), social relationships, consumer habits and even
eating behaviour, as well as detailed bio-physiological data about learners
and their daily practices such as alertness, learning capacity, et cetera). 

Nevertheless there is a core question about the underlying mechanisms and
how these new forms of user tracking and the feedback based on this
information can be best integrated in instructional designs and educational
systems. As a core principle, even redundant information visualized in
feedback-loops in the right context can be an efficient means for improving
self-regulation.

The special issue will collect the range of possible applications of
sensor-based feedback technologies and learning support technologies making
use of sensor information mostly in real-time but also post-hoc.

This issue will be published in Vol. 16, No 2 of the Bulletin of the
Technical Committee on Learning Technology. Articles that are not in the
area of the special theme are most welcome as well and will be published in
the regular article section. For further information please see 
http://www.ieeetclt.org/content/bulletin.

* Special Theme Submission procedure:
1. The articles in the bulletin are limited to 4 pages. Over-length articles
will not be published.
2. Please follow the format guidelines at:
http://www.ieeetclt.org/content/authors-guidelines.
3. The manuscripts should be either in Word or RTF format. Any figures used
in the contributions would be required separately in a graphic format (gif
or jpeg). The figures should also be embedded in the text at appropriate
places.
4. Please send the manuscripts by email as attachment to the guest editor of
this special theme [log in to unmask] (Subject: Submission to TCLT
bulletin).
5. In the email, please state clearly that the manuscript is
original material that has not been published, and is not being considered
for publication elsewhere.
