TEL4FC 2024 : 4th Workshop on Technology-Enhanced Learning for Future Citizens
Call For Papers
Today's youth will experience their future citizenship in a rapidly evolving Knowledge Society. K-12 kids must face crucial and technological challenges while addressing their educational needs and digital awareness.
At its fourth edition, in 2024, TEL4FC workshop aims to make an opening for those researchers, educators and technologists, who are involved in diverse knowledge areas, to promote among them a meaningful and interdisciplinary debate on computing education. Technology-Enhanced Learning is increasingly shaping the future of our society and people are boosting their own participation in democracy through digital architectures and the physical interaction to devices. Sharing and collaborating throughout platforms, networks, interactive ecosystems, using different intelligences are decisive factors of a new approach to learning and teaching as well.
Our world’s complexity is definitely permeating education and interlinking apparently different and separate fields: as researchers and educators, we have to facilitate students in shaping a sustainable citizenship in a connected and globalized world. The strategies to integrate diverse disciplines in a TEL framework is the aim of our workshop. It represents an opportunity for debate on how to increase the future citizens’ digital awareness and gradually setting up an ecological and sustainable mindset for all learners. The future of our society indeed depends on an engaged, informed, and critically-thinking population. The workshop is meant to connect researchers, educators and technologists involved in different and diverse areas, such as education, digital government, pedagogy, social and collaborative systems, cultural heritage, ethics, etc. to promote interdisciplinary research around the citizenship and the role of Technology-Enhanced Learning in shaping the future of our society, through the construction of future citizens that are fully aware of potentials and risks.
The workshop stimulates the submission of papers, of methodological, empirical or technological nature, about Technology-Enhanced Learning systems for the education of future citizens, including, but not limited to, the following fields:
Computational Thinking and Creative Coding
Data Science (Open Data, Knowledge Graphs, Data visualization, Data exploitation)
Media literacy and Social Learning, such as Fake news detection
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
Ethics, Privacy, (Cyber)-security
Interaction with Vocal Assistants and Bots
Smart city and autonomous vehicles
Outreach programs (high school, universities, teachers development)
Digital Government and Digital Participation
Accepted papers will be published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems.
