IWEPLET 2013 - International Workshop on EuroPLOT Persuasive Technology for Learning, Education and Teaching (IWEPLET 2013)



VenuePaphos, Cyprus Cyprus



Topics/Call fo Papers

Research and development of "Persuasive Technology" has in the past decade gained significant attention. One of the goals of this research is to understand the basic principles of persuasion and to harness their power. In the fields of education and teaching, persuasion is an important aspect which human tutors are using for motivation and learning. The development of technology which allows unsupervised learning without direct interaction with a human tutor, will need to implement such principles of persuasion in order to be successful.
This workshop aims to bring together experts and stakeholders in the realm of technology-based teaching and learning, who have developed tools or learning objects based on persuasive principles, or who are simply interested in discussing how to use persuasive principles in the development and application of technology-enhanced learning. This workshop will present latest research results related to teaching and learning technology, specifically addressing and utilising persuasive principles. It will host sessions with technical/scientific peer-reviewed papers, keynote presentations, technology workshops with hands-on demonstrations of persuasive teaching/learning technology, poster sessions, and a panel discussion on the outlook and the future of persuasive technology. Furthermore, it will provide a venue for networking with peers and domain experts.
For the scientific/technical sessions, we are seeking high-quality contributions which are addressing one or more of the following topics:
Theory and methodology of persuasive design.
Persuasive technology as basis for new learning.
Persuasive learning objects.
Case studies with persuasive technology.
Context-aware learning designs.
Ethics of persuasion and learning.
Persuasive evaluation and tools.
These contributions can be presented as full papers (8-page) with significant novelty and contribution to knowledge, or as posters for new ideas/concepts that have not yet been fully tested, but that are valuable to the community. Furthermore, technical demonstrations can be shown and will be presented in a special session.
