LCT: 9TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON LEARNING AND COLLABORATION TECHNOLOGIES

In the today’s knowledge society, learning and collaboration are two fundamental and strictly interrelated aspects of knowledge acquisition and creation. Learning technology is the broad range of communication, information and related technologies that can be used to support learning, teaching, and assessment, often in a collaborative way. Collaboration technology, on the other hand, is targeted to support individuals working in teams, towards a common goal, which may be an educational one, by providing tools that aid communication, the management of activities as well as the process of problem solving. In this context, interactive technologies do not only affect and improve the existing educational system, but become a transformative force that can generate radically new ways of knowing, learning and collaborating.

The LCT conference, affiliated to HCI International conference, addresses theoretical foundations, design and implementation, as well as effectiveness and impact issues related to interactive technologies for learning and collaboration, including design methodologies, developments and tools, theoretical models, learning design or learning experience (LX) design, as well as technology adoption and use in formal, non-formal and informal educational contexts.
