Sub-Conference on Classroom, Ubiquitous and Mobile Technologies Enhanced Learning (CUMTEL)

Ubiquitous learning has permeated society in this new era, most especially during the current pandemic. Mobile technologies, wireless technology, and cloud computing have changed the learning and teaching ecosystem and transformed modalities, dimensions and outcomes of learning. This transformation is now most prevalent in learning environments across the globe.

CUMTEL advocates educational research that highlights both pedagogical and technological innovations to enhance pedagogical practices in mobile, contextualized, and ubiquitous learning environments. This theme-based conference will present and share the results of current research efforts in this field and future challenges in terms of pedagogy and technologies, as well as socio-technological aspects such as accessibility, scalability, policies, privacy and security, and teachers’ professional development. The scope of the conference will cover but not be limited to the following topics:

  • Theoretical aspects of CUMTEL
  • Classroom interaction mediated by mobile and ubiquitous technologies
  • Mobile and ubiquitous learning scenarios
  • Mobile social networks for learning
  • Mobile Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (mCSCL)
  • Web 3.0, Web. 4.0 and Web 5.0 – digital evolutions that augment learning
  • Mobile applications for socio-cognitive/constructivist learning
  • Wireless sensor networks to support learning
  • Mobile apps and instructional design
  • Context-aware learning environments
