Track Description and Topics of Interest

The CSCL@ICALT2014 track has a strong focus on the role of technology as catalyst for social interaction and collaborative knowledge construction. Contemporary technologies, such as mobile devices, cloud computing, web systems for adaptive and intelligent collaboration support, conversational agents, tangibles and tabletops and many others, provide exciting new opportunities for leaners to communicate and collaborate in highly interactive learning environments. Enriched with innovative multimodal representations, such environments activate and challenge learners and stimulate knowledge building processes. Understanding these processes and their outcomes from various perspectives and at multiple levels is a major challenge for the CSCL researcher and educator.    

The CSCL@ICALT2014 track provides a unique opportunity for researchers and practitioners who work in the broader area of technology-enhanced collaborative learning to present their latest work from empirical, theoretical, conceptual and design based perspective. The track invites papers (full/short/poster submissions) that reflect state-of-the-art research advances spanning both the technological dimension (CSCL tools design and development) and the pedagogical perspective (implementation of CSCL tools in authentic contexts, impact of CSCL approaches, empirical results and valuable reflections). Major thematic areas of the track include:

  • CSCL theoretical, epistemological and methodological issues
  • Empirical results of CSCL usage (lab and field studies)
  • Mobile and non-standard (e.g. tabletops, furniture) technologies for Collaborative learning
  • Learning analytics and interaction analysis to model and represent group learning dynamics
  • Adaptive/Intelligent systems to support tutoring/scaffolding/scripting in CSCL settings
  • Learning Design and formalization approaches to support the CSCL perspective
  • Support of (web-based) learning communities with CSCL tools
  • Social media, Web 2.0 tools and Collaborative learning
  • Architectures and interoperability approaches for CSCL tools
  • Co-Construction of open educational resources and connectivist MOOCs
