The DULP vision aims at combining Design inspired learning, Ubiquitous learning, Liquid learning places (& liquid society), and Person in place centred design, which shall lead to challenging technologies, rethinking pedagogies, and being design inspired. This workshop deals with future visions of the concepts of DULP, their interrelations and interconnectiveness to each other, and their practical implementation in and for Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL).
DULP@ICALT2010 intends to offer an interdisciplinary arena where everybody can present and discuss ideas on what could be the future of TEL 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 educational processes.
The DULP@ICALT2010 should be of interest, not only for the ICALT participants, but 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 workshop 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.
DULP@ICALT2010 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
