Education is the cornerstone of any society, and it serves as one of the foundations for many of its social values and characteristics. State-of-the-art, new interactive technologies and novel methodologies allow researchers, designers, and domain experts to pursue Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) solutions targeting not only cognitive and social processes but also motivational, personality, or emotional factors. Nowadays, we can identify two main strands, providing necessary and complementary strengths to a TEL-oriented design process: appropriate technologies should be applied, and appropriate methods should guide the design and implementation of such applications. Technologies in TEL are capable of delivering smart, personalized, tailored, and motivating learning solutions. Methods are coming from different fields, such as education, psychology, sociology, computer science, and from diverse communities, where collaboration and co-working are used, such as maker communities and participatory design communities. In addition, current trends concerning the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Learning Analytics (LA) can help manage available (big) data and augment learning opportunities for learners (for instance by supporting self-regulated learning or adaptation of the learning material) and educators (for example, providing information about learners progression or facilitating reflections about teaching approaches and experiences).
As to these topics, the annual appointment of MIS4TEL established itself as a consolidated fertile forum where scholars and professionals from the international community, with a broad range of expertise in the TEL field, share results and compare experiences. The 13th edition of the conference calls for novel research in TEL and expands the topics of the previous editions, highlighting the role of the most recent methods and technological opportunities. As in the tradition of MIS4TEL, this edition aims at offering the different perspectives, and complementary voices, coming from the multidisciplinary field of TEL.
MIS4TEL 2023 will be held in Guimarães (Portugal) on 12th-14th July, 2023, in parallel with the PAAMS’23 International Conference.
