Technological Ecosystems for Enhancing Multiculturality – TEEM’15
7-9 October 2015, Porto, PORTUGAL
Following the successful results obtained in the previous editions of TEEM, namely in 2013 and in 2014, in both scientific outcomes, human relationships and cooperation opportunities, a new edition will be held in Porto. This edition will maintain its multicultural nature combining different aspects of the technology applied to knowledge society development, with a special attention to educational and learning issues.
TEEM is divided in thematic and highly cohesive tracks. Each track shares the scientific and formal aspects for paper submissions, peer reviews and publication, but the track chairs will organize the proper dynamics to achieve the most important goal: to create a researching community. Social events for all the participants help to strength the intercultural and multicultural skills among them, independently of the tracks in which they have been involved.
Additionally, the conference social events are open to all the participants, including those registered as students, for strengthening the intercultural and multicultural skills among them, independently of the tracks in which they have been involved. These lines promote a low-cost / high-value conference, which by coincidence reflects the perceived nature of the city hosting the 3rd TEEM, i.e. Porto, elected the Best European Destination 2014, according to http://www.europeanbestdestinations.com/top/europe-best-destinations-2014/
The proposed tracks for this edition are:
Track 1. New Technologies in Health Education and Research
Track 2. Educational Innovation
Track 3. A robot in the classroom
Track 4. Gamification ecosystems
Track 5. Endless horizons? Addressing current concerns about learning analytics
Track 6. Mobile Apps and computational systems as learning tools
Track 7. Apps for Learning and Learning with Apps
Track 8. Evaluation in education and guidance
