Co-located with 12th International Conference on Methodologies and Intelligent Systems for Technology Enhanced Learning (MIS4TEL), L'Aquila, Italy | 13th-15th July, 2022

Workshop papers submission deadline: 22nd April, 2022
Workshop camera-ready papers: 17th June, 2022

Accepted workshop papers will be included in the MIS4TEL Proceedings published in the LNNS series of Springer Verlag (, and will be Scopus indexed.

Smart technologies include, but are not limited to, AI-based devices for digital education, smart things, smart art-work, smart environments, smart cities and smart artefacts, in general. The workshop focuses on the role which reflections, as in design thinking, and dialogues, as in ethnographic research, play in imagining, conceptualising, using, assessing smart technologies for different contexts and people, with a preference for learning contexts and learners.

Workshop papers are expected to describe frameworks, methods, toolkits, experiences, studies or provocations with reflections and dialogues around smart technologies. Examples are toolkits which enable young generations to design smart things and reflect across their design ( Other examples are studies concerning design as a means for reflecting on stereotypes (

The workshop is intended as a forum to share provocations concerning past research work, novel ideas grounded in the literature, work-in-progress prototypes, as well as preliminary results which intercept the theme of the workshop. In other words, workshop papers are expected to report on early or ongoing research activities, which have not yet got the maturity expected for the main-conference submissions.

Suggested topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
Reflections in the creation, usage or evaluation of smart technologies
Responsibility or other critical reflections in technology enhanced learning
The role of dialogue in digital education
Field studies and ecological studies for reflecting with/around smart technologies
Playfulness, gamification and critical reflections with/around smart technologies
Responsibility in the design of smart solutions
Critical thinking in the design of smart cities, environments, things, artwork, artefacts
Dialogue and reflections in designing smart technologies at a distance
Dialogue and reflections in using smart technologies at a distance
Dialogue and reflections in assessing smart technologies at a distance
Dialogues and reflections in making or physical computing
Creativity, dialogues, reflections and smart technologies
Biases in smart technologies
Unveiling ethics concerns with/around smart technologies

Workshop contributions should be 10-page papers or exceptionally 6-page papers, including references; papers must be formatted according to the Springer LNNS template, available on the main-conference website of MIS4TEL.

Papers should be submitted as PDF via Easychair. The Easychair submission page can be accessed at Please take care in selecting the correct track i.e., “Workshop on Reflections and Dialogues around Smart Technology (ResiSTo)” when submitting.
