Conference Call for Papers

ST10. The Future of Education

Overview

The focus of this special track will be to explore the possible ways emerging technologies (eg immersive-reality, AI, etc.) might change future education. In this we take a very broad vision for the delivery of education stretching from formal education at (say) university through industrial training to informal lifelong learning.

The special track will seek to engage with the immersive education community in providing an opportunity for authors to write imaginative accounts of how they foresee immersive learning technologies and pedagogies changing the nature of future education.

While the track will encourage papers that make use of the Science-Fiction Prototyping methodology, it will be open to any narrative vision of the future education. This proposal is part of a vision for a twin-track event exploring the future impact of immersive learning technologies on education; the other event being a micro science-fiction competition.

List of Topics

This special session welcomes submissions on (but not limited to) the following topics:

– Immersive technologies, such as virtual reality, augmented reality, immersive environments, new digital media formats, haptics, smart glasses, wearables, etc. and its impact on education (current and future).

– Fiction For Design (Science Fiction Prototyping, Diegetic Innovation Templating, Design Fiction, Scenarios, Narratives & Storytelling, Creative Writing, etc.) and their role in designing the future of education.

– Future vision on technology applications and reapplications, both in formal and informal learning environments.
