Programme

The following outline programme is a suggested draft, based on the range of types of submission that the conference wishes to include. Final details of the programme will be determined later, when the exact nature of submissions is known.

In the draft outline programme that follows, the different types of sessions listed are:

  • Doctoral consortium – doctoral students present results of their studies for expert review and feedback
  • Keynote – presentations given by internationally-renowned speakers in the field
  • Industry foresights – invited companies and developers are given chance to present their state-of-the-art technologies, seeking discussion and comment to support their ongoing development
  • Panel and audience response – a panel of up to three speakers briefly present their views on a pertinent topic, then the audience is invited to participate in a round-table discussion, using audience response systems to record levels of responses from those participating
  • National directions – a number of presentations give details about the context of a country, its current and proposed directions in ICT and CSE, and research and practitioner papers to offer supporting details
  • Learner and teacher presentations – presentations given by teachers, or teachers and learners, showing their current innovative practice in the field
  • Full papers – a collection of three research papers that give new insights on the topic of the session
  • Short papers – a collection of six research papers that offer different perspectives on the topic of the session
  • Symposium – a collection of research papers that relate and provide a coherent set of views on a specific topic relating to the main themes of the conference
  • System presentations – up to three presentations of technology systems that have been or are being developed for educational purposes

 

In the final programme, the international programme committee will provide suggested pathways for different participants – for example, policy makers, researchers, doctoral students, teachers, trainers and educational professionals, developers, and those with interest in special educational needs. In this draft version, as an example, a pathway for policy makers is shown – follow the ‘green’ colour through the different days of the programme.
