ICCE2017 Workshop

8th International Workshop on

"Innovative Designs for Mobile and Ubiquitous Learning: 1:1 and Beyond"

Organizers:  Xiaoqing Gu, Lung-Hsiang Wong, Hui-Chun Chu, Morris Jong & Chengjiu Yin


Christchurch, New Zealand, from December 4th(Mon) to 8th(Fri) 2017

The workshop is a follow-up of the last seven ICCEs’ workshops of the same title. The advancement of personal computing devices, from personal computers to mobile devices, has been gradually changing the landscape of the technology-transformed learning. This facilitates the incorporation of one-to-one computing into education and opens up endless possibilities of the design and enactment of innovative teaching and learning models (or the enhancement of pre-existing models), such as perpetual and ubiquitous learning, personalized learning, authentic and contextualized learning, seamless learning, rapid knowledge co-construction, among others. This leads to the further empowerment of the learners in deciding what, where, when, and how they would learn, and whom they would learn with/from. After the initial hype, however, there have been voices within the researcher community to reassess the notion of one-to-one computing in classroom and informal learning, such as whether one-to-one settings may impact peer collaboration and teachers' roles, the issues of student and social readiness, as well as the explorations of alternative or hybrid settings of many-to-one, one-to-many, many-to-many, and one-to-one configurations.

The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum where international participants can share knowledge, experiences and concerns on the one-to-one technology-transformed learning and explore directions for future research collaborations.
