International Conference on Computers in Education (ICCE 2002)
3-6 December 2002
Auckland, New Zealand

** Organised by

** Sponsored by
College of Business, Massey University, New Zealand

The International Conference on Computers in Education (ICCE) series
aims to foster the creation and dissemination of knowledge about the
use of information technology in education throughout the Asia-Pacific
region. Since 1995 the ICCE series has been organized by the Asia-Pacific
Chapter of AACE (Association for the Advancement of Computing in
Education). Subsequent ICCEs have been held in different Asian
countries - Singapore (1995), Malaysia (1997, held annually ever since),
China (1998), Japan (1999), Taiwan (2000) and Korea (2001). ICCE 2002
will be held in Auckland, New Zealand.

Through ICCE 2002, New Zealand hopes to contribute enormously to the
valuable experience of the ICCEs and hence to reinforce all the efforts
to collaborate for the successful building of the new paradigm of
education in the information society. Every effort will be made to make
this a truly professional worldwide conference providing opportunities
for discussion and dissemination of pertinent information in computers
and education internationally. We invite you to ICCE 2002 New Zealand
where you can view the 21st century through sharing ideas and prospects.

** Conference theme

"Learning communities on the Internet - Pedagogy in implementation"

Some years ago there was a movement in education towards learning
alongside peers. The recent increase in accessibility to networks,
whether global or local, has provided an enormous impetus to practice
and research in which learners study and work together. However, many
questions on the effectiveness and efficiency of such learning
environments remain unanswered or at least have little empirical or
theoretical evidence to provide beyond intuitive responses:

-  learners naturally have many misconceptions; would peer learning
simply spread such misconceptions?
-  learning is personal; why should a colearner give better help than
a professional tutor?
-  Internet resources are general; don't learners need resources
designed to meet their specific needs?
-  learners' culture leads them to expect to be taught; why should
they have to work more?
-  tutors' culture leads them to expect to teach; why should they
change that role?
-  and many more....

ICCE 2002 invites submissions with a good theoretical base or formalism
that present new, yet unpublished, solid achievements based on
experiments, that come to answer concretely one or more of the questions
above or can point to possible answers. Survey papers are also accepted,
if they are well documented, make a contribution to the field, and reveal
new aspects and perspectives, as well as future directions.
