Science2.0 for Technology Enhanced Learning: a tool and a workshop (and more to come!)

Together with my Great Friend Xavier, I will be presenting some work we did on the analysis of the EdMedia conferences next week. You can try out for yourself the tool that the ESPOL team developed to explore 10 years of publications in EdMedia. Or you can also see some screencasts that explain how we analyzed co-authorship and co-citation.

This is part of our ongoing work on leveraging web2.0 techniques to support research on Technology Enhanced Learning. On that topic, I am very excited to launch the call for papers for the 1st Workshop on Web2.0 approaches, tools and technologies to support research on Technology Enhanced Learning (TELSci2.0).

(EC-TEL09), Nice, France, September 29 – October 2, 2009

I am very excited to finally move this topic forward! Through the tool mentioned above, I’ve already discovered several authors that I was not familiar with that work on the same topics that I work on – as demonstrated by the fact that we share many citations. The potential here is huge!

In the coming weeks and months, we will be adding more material to drive this tool, like the proceedings of eLearn, ICWL, ECTEL, ICALT, TLT and others. We will also be linking this with information about the web2.0 presence of authors, so as to investigate the link between ‘traditional’ academic publishing and more ‘current’ ways of communicating about our research. More on that in a few days…

For now, please spread the word about the workshop and please consider submitting your own work – deadline is July 5… Or submit a comment here with references to similar tools…
