Track Program Chairs

Track Description and Topics of Interest:

This specific track of the conference addresses those aspects related to different uses of wireless, mobile, pervasive and ubiquitous computing in combination with proven educational approaches to support new forms and possibilities of teaching and learning. Highly mobile, context-aware, and pro-active services provide significant benefits to education. The WMUTE track provides a forum to present and discuss technologies, teaching and learning strategies and applications as well as to map out directions for future developments and research collaborations.

The scope of this track covers, but is not limited to, the following topics:

  • Theoretical foundations for mobile and ubiquitous learning
  • Emerging tools and technologies for mobile and ubiquitous learning
  • Learning strategies for mobile and ubiquitous learning
  • Innovative digital content for mobile and ubiquitous learning
  • Context-aware learning: Design and Application of learning across different contexts
  • Sensor-based applications and learning support
  • Intelligent, pro-active infrastructures and tools for education
  • Internet of Things support for learning
  • Tangible, natural-language user interfaces in education
  • Applications of mobile and ubiquitous learning
  • Mobile serious gaming and pervasive games for learning
  • Evaluation of mobile and ubiquitous learning systems/approaches
  • Empirical studies demonstrating the potential benefits of mobile technologies in education

We kindly invite authors to submit original papers on their work.
