TCC WORLDWIDE ONLINE CONFERENCE
April 12-14, 2011

EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES: MAKING IT WORK
Submission deadline: January 28, 2011
CALL FOR PROPOSALS
TCC 2011 invites faculty, support staff, librarians, counselors, student affairs professionals, students, administrators, and educational consultants to submit proposals for papers and general sessions.
The emergence of Web 2.0 created a global platform for communication, collaboration, and sharing. People, technologies, and perspectives have converged on the Internet that has spawned global communities and platforms such as Twitter and Facebook.
The Internet has changed education. Many issues and concerns, however, have yet to be answered fully: How do faculty, staff, students and the communities served collaborate and innovate to produce positive learning outcomes? How can students learn through virtual worlds, educational games, augmented realities, or the use of smart, mobile devices? What best practices or choices have emerged in online learning? How do we keep up? How can we support each other?
TCC invites papers and general sessions related to technology integrated learning, open educational resources, distance learning, virtual communities, and best choices in educational technologies. The coordinators are looking for a broad range of submissions including, but are not limited to:
- Perspectives and personal experiences with emerging learning technologies
- Case studies and progress in applying ICT and Web 2.0 tools for learning
- Technologies that enable communication, collaboration, creativity, and sharing
- Building and sustaining communities of learners
- Instructional applications in virtual worlds
- Distance learning including mobile learning
- Open educational resources (OER)
- E-portfolios and assessment tools
- Student orientation and preparation
- Ubiquitous and lifelong learning
- Online student services and advising
- Managing information technology and change
- Global access and intercultural communication
- Educational technology in developing countries
- Educational game design, rubrics, and assessment
- Student success and assessment strategies online
- Professional development for faculty and staff

- Augmented reality - blending virtual content in real environments
