ANNOUNCEMENT

The organisers of the CMLT14 and SoMoLearn workshops at EC TEL have come to the conclusion that the themes and topics of these workshops are very close, and that the participants would benefit from an inclusive conversation. We have therefore decided to merge the two workshops and promote the synergy between these two communities. The merged workshop will take place on Sept. 17th.

As a consequence of these deliberations, the reviewing process has been delayed, we realise that the change of date may open up a possibility for people who previously could not attend the workshop. We are willing to consider late submissions on a per-case basis.

We are glad to receive your submission via EasyChair. Please use the following link to submit: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=somolearnectel14

ABOUT CMLT14

The 3rd Workshop on Creative Mobile Learning and Teaching #CMLT14 focuses on innovative uses of mobile and wearable technologies to support creativity in learning and teaching, i.e. teaching and learning how to be creative as well as teaching and learning through creative practice. We invite students, educators, instructional designers, researchers, practitioners and developers to share and create innovative, creative mobile learning applications, concepts and scenarios.

About SoMoLearn

Empowering Teachers as Designers of Learning Experiences Utilising Social-Mobile Technologies (SoMoLearn)

We are all familiar with the image of students obsessively using their mobile to check Facebook, update Twitter, and share images on Instagram. Such practices are typically seen as disruptive to learning, and thus these media – or even the mobile devices themselves – are often banned from educational spaces. Yet at a closer look, these are perhaps disruptive learning practices – not disruption to learning. Students are using social and mobile media to share their experiences, reflect on their own and their peers’ experiences, and together construct meanings from them. Niall Winters eloquently argued recently (Winters, 2013) – the benefits of new media are not manifesting themselves in educational systems, mainly because most attempts to promote them are bypassing the primary agents of change in any educational system: teachers. Accordingly, the core question of this workshop is how to empower teachers to recruit mobile technologies and social media as an ally in their work with students. Teachers need to develop online professionalism, media literacy skills and knowledge about how to use these new media for teaching, and how to sensitize students with regard to potentialities, ethics and risks. These are the themes that will be explored through the lens of learning design, teacher inquiry, participatory design and professional development.
