Call for Papers: Mashups for Learning (MASHL2009)

logo_mashl2009_300ptMartin Ebner and I kindly ask for contributions to a special track within the ICL conference in Villach, AT (23-25 September 2009): The MASHL2009 deals with „Mashups for Learning“.

The special track “Mashups for Learning” (MASHL2009) takes place within the “International Conference on Interactive Computer Aided Learning” in Villach, Austria. For the interdisciplinary MASHL2009 we ask for contributions on “Mashups for Learning” to foster the exchange of innovative approaches and research results:

Wikis, Weblogs, media portals (such as FlickR or YouTube) as well as social networking sites (such as MySpace or LinkedIn) offer various (learning) opportunities. These are not always easy to handle and organise. Web-based mashups merge data and/or functionalities from different Web sources. An example for mashups for learners are Personal Learning Environments (PLEs). Various prototypes and tools try to support communities of practice and learners by effectively combining resources. Additionally, smart applications are developed to add filtering and recommender systems, reputation systems, engagement indicators, personalisation opportunities or quality assurance concepts to support learning within the Web 2.0.

In this special track we want to bring together new and innovative approaches, applications and experiences with mashups for learners, utilising Web 2.0 applications. Contributions can focus on, but are not limited to, one of the following topics:

  • Personal Learning Environments as well as support of communities of learners
  • New concepts and tools of mashups for learning
  • Technical solutions and working examples for mashups
  • Studies on experiences and evaluation of mashups for learning
  • Conceptual design and studies on specific aspects, such as recommendation or reputation systems for mashups
  • Current and future developments concerning technology and pedagogy

Submission deadline (8 pages): 4 June 2009
Notification of acceptance: 16 July 2009
