Special Track:

In the 2nd International Conference on Technology and Innovation in Learning, Teaching and Education (TECH-EDU 2020)

December 2-4, 2020

Fully Online - University of Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro, Portugal

This Special Track aims to share and value contributions on tools that allow monitoring and tracking of student progress in the context of e-learning to support the pedagogical and didactic experience. All teaching/learning situations are of interest (formal/informal, face-to-face/distance learning, K-12/VET/Higher Education/Professional Training/Continuing Education, etc.). Contributions should highlight the SCRL strategies promoted, the results obtained and recommendations for future research, in an international context. Likewise, this special track aims to offer a space for sharing ideas and reflections regarding tools that allow the analysis of the strategies of SCRL adopted by the students, that allow them to monitor their own learning progress, and that allow teachers to monitor the class and adjust their pedagogical practices.

Contribute your ideas and reflections on tools that allow the analysis of the SCRL strategies adopted by the students and foster their development.
