ST8. iLELA / Immersive Learning Experiences in Later Age


Over the past few years, there has been an increasing interest in using the potential of digital technologies to involve the learner into role-playing, socially embedded interactions, and mixed-reality environments. Although these learning experiences tend to stem from the advancements in today’s society, age-related changes and media allocation in different generations pose many challenges to both immersive and inclusive learning experiences. The aim of this special track is to discuss the challenges and strategies used in the fields of Information and communication technologies and gerontagogy or educational gerontology, in order to extend technology-enhanced learning to older adults.

List of Topics

The topics of interest include (but not limited to):

Theoretical framework or literature reviews related with the role of technologies in gerontagogy;

Development of digital artifacts for immersive learning in later age; –

Theories and practices related with learning environments and active ageing;

Case studies of learning experiences in later age;

Approaches to learning experiences, memory plasticity and cognitive training in the aging process;

Intergenerational learning experiences;

Technology-enhanced learning and aging
