The Second Annual Connected Learning Summit (CLS) is happy to announce its open call for session proposals.
The mission of the CLS is to fuel a growing movement of innovators harnessing the power of emerging technology to expand access to participatory, playful, and creative learning. It represents a merger between three community events with this shared vision and values: the Digital Media and Learning Conference, the Games+Learning+Society Conference, and Sandbox Summit.
With a unique focus on cross-sector connections and progressive and catalytic innovation, the event brings together leading researchers, educators, and developers. The program includes a mix of engaging presentation and workshop formats ranging from speculative design, to game walkthroughs, sharing work in progress, and research panels.
CLS encourages the submission of academic papers and project presentations as well as more innovative session formats, which focus on digital technologies for learning, educational and commercial games and other media, innovative tech-infused curricula, and theoretical and/or empirical exploration of digital media and technology for learning.
Abstracts from all session types will be included in the CLS Conference Proceedings. Research papers will be published in full, and subject to blind peer review. All other session formats will be subject to committee review.
The deadline for final submissions is March 8, 2019. CLS will be held at the University of California, Irvine on October 2-5, 2019.
