The workshop "Future Trends in Technology-Enhanced Learning: Voicing the TEL future" will be held in conjunction with the Industry Track of the Seventh European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning EC-TEL 2012 (18-21 September in Saarbrücken, Germany). All 8 industry track speakers will participate in this workshop and we encourage further participants to register at the EC-TEL website.
The workshop will be a 2-day roadmapping event, while on the first day (Tuesday full-day) scenarios expecially relevant for stakeholders in Schools and Higher Education will be adressed. The second workshop day (Wednesday half-day) will focus on topics relevant to the TEL industry and therefore strongly encourages TEL providers to participate. Goals of this second day will be to identify technology trends, their maturity, corresponding TEL opportunities and possible barriers together by combining different expertise and views, to inform both the Commission as well as the TEL Roadmapping groups that the TEL-Map project is supporting.
The TEL-Map project will bring in the voices and visions of TEL stakeholders from Schools, University and LLL sectors and map them against the market plans and visions of TEL vendors. Together we will develop a list of TEL opportunities based on visions derived from the stakeholders organized and supported by TEL-Map project and contributions from workshop participants.
Working in groups, participants will analyse these opportunities to establish the TEL approaches and technology development required.
The output of the workshop will be feed into the Roadmapping groups in order to support them in planning of specific actions and projects for their TEL futures. Workshop participants will be invited to join any Roadmapping group that is clearly relevant to their aims.
