Dear Colleague,

We wanted to give you a quick heads up on several opportunities that have rapidly approaching deadlines; see below for details on each opportunity:

  • NSF Ideas Lab preliminary proposals – deadline extended to March 4
  • Synthesis & Design workshop – call for participants (May 20-22 workshop)
  • CIRCL Webinar: Neuroscience and Cyberlearning on February 19
  • STEM Video Showcase – register to present by February 19
  • ISLS conference travel scholarship – apply by March 1
  • Call for Papers on theoretical work in learning design – due March 15
  • Survey for teachers on use of immersive media in the classroom

NSF Ideas Lab Preliminary Proposals – Deadline Extended to March 4. NSF has extended the deadline for preliminary proposals for Ideas Labs related to harnessing data to March 4, 2019. “Ideas Labs” are mentored interactions in which a group of 20-30 selected people come together to create new ideas or approaches to transform a field.v

Synthesis & Design Workshop – Calls for Participants. The Future of Embodied Design for Mathematical Imagination and Cognition Workshop will be held May 20-22, 2019 at the University of Wisconsin, in Madison, WI. Learn more and apply to attend.

CIRCL Webinar: Neuroscience and Cyberlearning on February 19. Join us for the upcoming CIRCL webinar: Neuroscience and Cyberlearning: A Convergence Conversation on February 19, 2019 from 12-1 pm PT / 3-4 pm ET. Jodi Asbell-Clarke and Judi Fusco will facilitate a discussion with a panel of researchers about the convergence of emergent neuroscience and learning science. Learn more and register.

STEM Video Showcase – Register to Present by February 19. Don’t miss the opportunity to reach tens of thousands of people with a video about your project. Register to present at the 2019 STEM Video Showcase by February 19, 2019 and discuss your video with researchers, practitioners, policy makers and the public during the week long event on May 13-20. Last year, more than 20 cyberlearning videos were presented, and several won awards. One researcher said, “The showcase pushed me to make a great 3 minute video, and now I use it in every presentation.” During the event, facilitators seed discussions and recognize videos with the Facilitators’ Choice award. If you’d like to be a facilitator (which comes with an honorarium), contact us.

ISLS Conference Travel Scholarship – Apply by March 1. ISLS is offering a conference travel scholarship to support learning scientists who live in regions of the world that are not represented at their annual conferences. Learn more and apply by March 1, 2019.

Call for Papers on Theoretical Work in Learning Design – Due March 15. You are invited to submit to a special issue of Educational Technology Research and Development (ETRD) on The Role of Theory in Learning Design and Technology Research and Practice. Outlines are due March 15, 2019.

Survey for Teachers on Use of Immersive Media. The Joan Ganz Cooney Center is conducting a survey about use of immersive media in the classroom; please share with teachers in grades 1-8! Results will inform a publication that we’ll share in a future CIRCL newsletter.
