DULP & SPeL @ ICALT 2012: Exploring Emerging Technologies and the Future of Technology Enhanced Learning

3rd Workshop on Design Centered and Personalized Learning in Liquid and Ubiquitous Learning Places &
5th International Workshop on Social and Personalized Computing for Web Supported Learning Communities

in conjunction with ICALT 2012
The 12th International Conference on Advanced Learning Technologies

Rome, Italy
4-6 July 2012


The proposed workshop is the result of merging the experience and background of two workshops centered on ubiquitous personalization and future visions in TEL: DULP and SPeL. Both workshops have as core topic the personalization of learning experiences as well as the future development of personalized learning environments. DULP stands for D -) Design Inspired Learning; U -) Ubiquitous Learning; L -) Liquid Learning Places; P -) Person in Place Centered Design, thus summarizing and bringing together a number of current trends and researchers. DULP started as a national effort in Rome, Italy, in 2009; after the first steps, an international community has been built, and a series of workshops started at ICALT 2010 and continued at ICALT 2011. The SPeL workshop has as general topic the social and personal computing for web-supported learning communities, leading towards the creation of a truly social and adaptive learning environment. The workshop has been held during the last 4 years in conjunction with the SAINT 2008, WI/IAT 2009, DEXA 2010 and ICWL 2011 conferences respectively.

Topics of Interest
The workshop welcomes submissions covering aspects of emerging technologies and future of TEL, especially in the areas of personalized, social and ubiquitous learning, particularly related to:
