CALL FOR PAPERS – HKAECT 2018 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

Call for Papers – HKAECT 2018 International Conference

 

New Media for Educational Change: Effect on Learning and Reflection on Practice

25 – 27 July 2018 at Hong Kong Baptist University, Hong Kong, China
Organized by: HKAECT & Hong Kong Baptist University

The new digital and web-based technologies, coupled with ubiquitous mobile access, have provided us to whatever information we want, whenever and wherever we want it. In spite of the fact that the world has become increasingly connected and interactive, some scholars contend that new technologies have not brought about transformative changes in the educational arena. Furthermore, the always-on lifestyle has given rise to some concerns over its negative impact on young people’s cognitive development, attention, and learning.

The HKAECT 2018 International Conference seeks to encourage the sharing of the experience and reflection on the theme of new media for educational change. It encourages scholarly discussion that looks beyond what new media can afford for teaching and learning, and ponder over the actual effects of these media on communication and learning. In particular, we welcome the sharing of good practice and lessons learned of applying new media in a wide range of fields and critical reflection on the concerns and issues associated with emergent technologies.

 Tracks:

  • Communication and new media in everyday life
  • Learning analytics and AI in education
  • Game-based learning and ubiquitous Learning
  • MOOC and open education
  • Design and application
  • Social context and learning environment
  • Social media in education
  • Risk and ethics in using new media

Paper Submission:

This is a blind peer-reviewed conference. We will have two rounds of calls for papers. The first round calls for full papers that will be selected for the proceedings published by Springer. Submissions must be original and should not have been published previously.
