Maynooth University Department of Education plays host to this year’s CELDA (Cognition and Exploratory Learning in Digital Age) conference from October 24th to October 26th, 2015. For more details see http://celda-conf.org/
The CELDA conference aims to address the main issues concerned with evolving learning processes and supporting pedagogies and applications in the digital age. There have been advances in both cognitive psychology and computing that have affected the educational arena. The convergence of these two disciplines is increasing at a fast pace and affecting academia and professional practice in many ways.
Paradigms such as just-in-time learning, constructivism, student-centered learning and collaborative approaches have emerged and are being supported by technological advancements such as simulations, virtual reality and multi-agents systems. These developments have created both opportunities and areas of serious concerns.
In addition to the CELDA conference, there are two co-located conferences: the WWW/Internet 2015 Conference that aims to address the main issues of concern within WWW/Internet and the Applied Computing 2015 conference that considers the main issues of concern within the applied computing area and related fields.
