CAL (Computer Assisted Learning) is one of the leading international conferences in the field of education and technology. It brings together researchers across all education sectors, from primary years, to informal learning, to higher education, and across a range of disciplines from psychology to computer science, media and cultural studies.
In 2011, the conference will lead a challenging international debate about the future of research and practice in educational technology. CAL 11 aims to:
Our four themes for the conference are:
Theme 1: Sustainability, globalisation and social justice
Prizes for the best oral and poster presentations will be available. The Prizes consist of a year’s subscription to Computers & Education and The Internet and Higher Education.
Within the main conference individual paper sessions, workshops and symposia are organised around the four themes. An informal fringe activity is run by the local organising committee to give a chance for participants to showcase and experiment with emerging technologies. If researchers wish to informally ‘demo’ innovative learning resources during the conference, please contact the conference chairs to discuss this possibility.
In this video Professor Keri Facer, the conference Co-chair, gives a tribute to previous CAL conferences, outlines the key themes of the 2011 conference, exciting activities and cutting edge research that will be part of CAL 11.
