The International Conference on Cognition and Exploratory Learning in Digital Age 2013 has announced a 2nd call for papers.
Please submit your contribution until 29 April 2013, we look forward to your submission.
The IADIS CELDA 2013 conference aims to address the main issues concerned with evolving learning processes and supporting pedagogies and applications in the digital age. There have been advances in both cognitive psychology and computing that have affected the educational arena. The convergence of these two disciplines is increasing at a fast pace and affecting academia and professional practice in many ways. Paradigms such as just-in-time learning, constructivism, student-centered learning and collaborative approaches have emerged and are being supported by technological advancements such as simulations, virtual reality and multi-agents systems.
The aim of the ASC is to jointly exploit the possibilities and address the challenges so that the eyetracking technique can be effectively used to design, evaluate and improve education.
The conference is organized around three topics. Each topic will be introduced by one presentation from the Educational Psychology community and one from the Eye Tracking Methodology community. The presentations are meant to give insight in each of the three topics from different perspectives and serve as an inspiration for the later parallel group session.
The speakers and topics are:
- Daniel Richardson (University College London )& Els Boshuizen (CELSTEC): Expertise and expertise development in the professions: The case of visual expertise
This topic focuses on the methodology for coupling eye tracking and verbal data.
- Richard Dewhurst (Humanities Lab, Lund University ) & Saskia Brand-Gruwel (CELSTEC): Information-problem solving: Connecting attentional and cognitive processes
This topic focuses on the methodology of measuring cognitive states, such as mental effort with eye tracking.
- Jukka Hyönä (Turku Univeristy )& Liesbeth Kester (CELSTEC): Adaptive learning Technologies
This topic focuses on the methodology of eye tracking data-analysis in navigational and reading strategies
Apart from these six presentations, you can follow two extra presentations in the life stream. Halszka Jarodzka (CELSTEC) will give a presentation on the Current status of eye tracking research on Learning and Instruction. Kenneth Holmqvist (Humanities Lab, Lund University ) will go into “Methodological aspects of eye tracking research.
