Ubiquitous Learning Conference 2011


Welcome to the website of the Ubiquitous Learning Conference. The Conference will be held at the University of California, 11 to 12 November 2011, in Berkeley, California.

The Ubiquitous Learning Conference investigates the uses of technologies in learning, including devices with sophisticated computing and networking capacities which are now pervasively part of our everyday lives’ from laptops to mobile phones, games, digital music players, personal digital assistants and cameras. The Conference explores the possibilities of new forms of learning using these devices not only in the classroom, but in a wider range of places and times than was conventionally the case for education. Ubiquitous Learning is made possible in part by the affordances of the new, digital media. What’s new about it? What’s not-so-new? What are the main challenges of access to these new learning opportunities? These are the key themes and scope and concerns of the Conference and its companion Journal.

Plenary speakers will include some of the world’s leading thinkers in the field of technology-in-learning and they will be complemented by numerous parallel paper, workshop and colloquium presentations by researchers and practitioners. Participants are invited to submit a presentation proposal either for a 30-minute paper, 60-minute workshop, or a jointly presented 90-minute colloquium session. Parallel sessions are loosely grouped into streams reflecting different perspectives or disciplines. Each stream also has its own talking circle, a forum for focused discussion of issues. For those unable to attend the Conference in person, virtual participation is also available.

We encourage all presenters to submit written papers to Ubiquitous Learning: An International Journal, a fully refereed academic Journal. Virtual participants may also submit papers for consideration by the Journal. All registered Conference participants will receive a complimentary online subscription to the Journal. This subscription is valid until one year after the Conference end-date.
