About the Conference
The 1st D4Learning International Conference: Innovations with Digital Learning for Inclusion (D4L) is an international conference, organized by the D4Learning Research group (http://d4learning.aau.dk), Aalborg University. It is held in collaboration with the European Distance and e-Learning Network (EDEN), and EDENs conference series of Open Classroom with focus on distance education and new technologies in school level education and training. The D4L conference serves as a forum for the discussion and exchange of information on the research, development, and applications on all topics related to the use of digital technology for inclusion.
The D4L International Conference on Innovations with Digital Learning aims at becoming a biannual meeting place for presenting and discussing new educational environments, affordances of digital tools for including education through digital technology, and best practices and case studies on innovative technology-based learning strategies or pedagogies to achieve this goal. The D4L conference on digital innovation learning through digital technology aims to give an overview of the state of the art as well as upcoming trends, and to promote discussion about the pedagogical potential of new learning and educational technologies in the academic, educational and corporate world.
D4L spans across disciplines and levels of education. We invite you to attend D4L and submit proposals for papers, panels, roundtables, tutorials, workshops, posters/demonstrations, corporate showcases/demos. The conference review policies requires that each proposal will be peer-reviewed for inclusion in the conference program, conference proceedings and, potentially, in four journals affiliated with the conference. All accepted papers will be published on the conference website, in a CD-ROM/USB drive with ISBN, and a conference proceedings booklet of abstracts. For inclusion in proceedings and being considered for publishing in journals the registration and presentation of each paper is mandatory.
D4L seeks papers reporting research work, academic or business case-studies, on topics indicated below in the section “Conference Areas”. Papers describing advanced prototypes, systems, tools and techniques and general survey papers indicating future directions are also encouraged. Both technological and social-oriented papers are accepted. All papers must describe original work, not previously published or submitted to another conference. Accepted papers, presented at the conference by one of the authors, will be published in the Proceedings of D4Learning conferences under an ISBN, and will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP, EI (Elsevier Index) and Scopus. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. Submitted manuscripts can be a regular paper, concept paper, work-in-progress paper, and literature reviews. There will be both oral and poster sessions.
Research, Phd-work, case studies and commercial presentations of technologies intended to support processes of inclusion are envisioned. Special sessions dedicated to school practitioners (leadership and teachers), including teaching/learning contexts with challenges of inclusion of kids with difficulties of attention into the classroom will be established. Companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies for inclusion or researchers interested in holding a tutorial, workshop or special session are invited to contact the conference secretariat or visit the conference website
