ICWL09 Workshops

Second Workshop on Story-Telling and Educational Games (STEG '09)

"Based on the successful experience form the 1st STEG we plan to organize a one-day workshop, which covers a wide range of research issues about story-telling and educational games including story and game design paradigms, Web 2.0 based story-telling and gaming scenarios, advanced story-telling and educational gaming technologies and platforms for technology enhanced learning. It aims at a state-of-the-art discussion on advanced research and open issues on story-telling and educational gaming among multimedia communities, with special focus on how both approaches can be combined."

Workshop on Virtual Worlds for academic, organizational, and life-long learning (ViWo 2009)

"Although virtual worlds have been an active research topic for a long time, technology was not ready for complex application scenarios since recent years. New interesting and powerful platforms and tools, such as Second Life, Active Worlds, Multiverse, Open Croquet, OpenSim and Sunís 3D Wonderland, have been emerged applicable to complement or even replace other knowledge transfer and learning settings. Modern virtual worlds are seen from an optimistic viewpoint as a disruptive and transformative technology. However, it still remains unclear to some extent where the real benefits and limitations of using virtual worlds as knowledge transfer and learning environments are when compared to more traditional methods. In order to avoid the same pitfalls of past e-learning solutions by just applying traditional learning approaches to a new technology, this special track is indented to offer a multidisciplinary platform which brings together international researchers from different organizations in order to share their experience with this technology."

Social Information Retrieval for Technology Enhanced Learning (SIRTEL?9)

"Learning and teaching resource are available on the Web - both in terms of digital learning content and people resources (e.g. other learners, experts, tutors). They can be used to facilitate teaching and learning tasks. The remaining challenge is to develop, deploy and evaluate Social information retrieval (SIR) methods, techniques and systems that provide learners and teachers with guidance in potentially overwhelming variety of choices.

The aim of the SIRTEL?9 workshop is to look onward beyond recent achievements to discuss specific topics, emerging research issues, new trends and endeavors in SIR for TEL. The workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners to present, and more importantly, to discuss the current status of research in SIR and TEL and its implications for science and teaching.
