How are current projects pushing the frontiers of learning theories and computing technologies to create innovative learning experiences? What are we learning from the research? How might advances in scientific methods drive this work forward? What new questions about learning can we answer?

The goal of this full-day pre-conference workshop at ICLS 2018 is to bring together a diverse international group of learning scientists and computer scientists to foster international connections and envision bold new designs for learning in the next 5-10 years. Participants will be asked to read the Cyberlearning Community Report as pre-workshop preparation. Small groups will be organized for interactive work around a subset of the report themes and other themes based on participant interest. A preliminary set of themes for discussion includes:

  • Community Mapping: Moving and Discovering Across Contexts
  • Expressive Construction: Enabling Learners to Represent Powerful Ideas
  • Classrooms as Digital Performance Spaces
  • Virtual Peers and Coaches: Social and Cognitive Support for Learning
  • Remote Scientific Labs: Authenticity at Distance
  • Enhancing Collaboration and Learning through Touch Screen Interface

Invited presentations, whole-group discussions, and small group work will provide opportunity for both sharing and learning within and across groups.
