This special issue of the IxD&A journal intends to expand the results of
the workshop DULP@ICALT2011

DULP@ICALT2011 was intended to explore the path that, starting from the
transformations that are marking the present, will lead us to the future
of the Technology Enhanced Education (TEE). In such settings we find:
- persons are considered in all her/his complexity and placed at the
center of educational contexts and scenarios increasingly ubiquitous,
complex, organic;
- the perimeter of the physical space, in which the educational
experiences develop, becomes increasingly undefined, liquid and host more
and more nomadic and informal practices that cross glocalities
characterized by a high density of social interactions;
- technologies, increasingly embedded into the everyday spaces and
artifacts, make the places not only more sensitive but also responsive
and, potentially, co-evolutionary (TEP - Technology Enhanced Places)
giving rise to new mixed landscapes in which one can experiment, seamless,
the integration of physicality and virtuality.

This special issue of the IxD&A journal looks for contributions that,
starting from the current state of the art, are able to:
a) imagine a realistic future of TEE that should be applicable in real
b) induce a fruitful encounter between disciplines, to the benefit of the
centrality of the educational experiences and of the expectations of the

Contributions can describe (but are not limited to):
* realistic futuristic models for educational systems / settings /
concepts / classrooms,
* empirical evaluations and educational experiences with existing systems
/ settings / concepts / classrooms
* the role of context in new systems / settings / concepts / classrooms
and related models / experiences

* Deadline for submission: October 20, 2011.
