*** Call for Papers EC-TEL 2017 ***

The 12th European Conference on Technology-Enhanced Learning

12-15 September 2017, Tallinn University, Tallinn, Estonia


The European Conference on Technology-Enhanced Learning (EC-TEL) engages
researchers, practitioners, educational developers, entrepreneurs and
policy makers to address current challenges and advances in the field. This
year’s theme of ‘Data Driven Approaches in Digital Education’ focuses on
the new possibilities and challenges brought by the digital transformation
of the education systems. The increasing amount of data that can be
collected from learning environments but also various wearable devices and
new hardware sensors provides plenty of opportunities to rethink
educational practices and provide new innovative approaches to learning and
teaching. This kind of data can provide new insights about learning, inform
individual and group-based learning processes and contribute to a new kind
of data-driven education for the 21st century.

The conference will explore how data can be used to change and enhance
learning in different ways and to collect evidence for technological
innovations in learning: for instance multimodal data, personal data
stores, data visualisations for learner and teacher awareness, feedback
processes, predictions of learning progress, personalisation and
adaptation, as well as data-driven learning designs, or ethics and privacy
policies for the data-driven future.

Papers should consider data at different scales (individual, group, class,
massive) and different dimensions (cognitive, emotional, behavioral) of
learner engagement with the technology. We are looking forward to receiving
papers that address the conference themes and are informed by theories of
pedagogy and evidence of effective practice. Qualitative papers offering
robust meta-analyses or having visionary new educational designs are also

The venue for this year’s conference is Estonia’s capital Tallinn, the best
preserved medieval city in Northern Europe directly at the Baltic Sea..
