Conference background and goals

The IADIS CELDA 2004 conference aims to address the main issues concerning with the evolving learning processes and supporting pedagogies and applications in digital age. There have been huge advancements in both cognitive psychology and computing that have affected the educational arena. The convergence of these two disciplines has never been faster before and this marriage has affected the very basis of the academia. Paradigms such as just-in-time learning, constructivist approaches, student-centered learning and collaborative approaches have emerged, and are being supported by technological advancements such as simulations, virtual reality and multi-agents systems to name a few. This merger has created both opportunities and areas of serious concerns. This conference aims to cover both technological as well as pedagogical issues related to these developments. Main tracks have been identified. However innovative contributions that do not fit into these areas will also be considered as long as they are directly related to the overall theme of the conference.

Conference Outcomes (publications)

The proceedings of the conference will be published in the form of a book. Authors of selected papers will be invited to publish extended versions of their papers in the Innovations in Education and Teaching International Journal (SSCI indexed).
