Over the past three decades, researchers in the field of technology-enhanced education have developed technological tools, pedagogical strategies and innovative theories for improving teaching-learning processes. Many of these innovations have been supported by strong empirical evidence. However, the task of designing and implementing technology-enhanced learning environments suffers from an important challenge. On the one hand, the learning environment must function as per the requirements for the situation it was designed for, taking into consideration the local context and the relevance to the targeted community. On the other hand, the implications and contributions of the research must be generalizable, so that the field of technology-enhanced learning can progress as a scientific discipline.
ICCE 2016 will provide a global forum for researchers, practitioners and policy makers to share their perspectives on these issues. We hope this conference will provide several opportunities for researchers to discuss and debate on these issues, and learn from each other’s’endeavours. Secondly, we hope that the conference will lead to collaboration between the multiple research efforts ongoing in several APSCE member countries, so that projects across the different local contexts can give us more insight into this problem and help make a global impact.
