Handheld Learning 2009, Call for Proposals


And for good measure, here is the general call for Handheld Learning 2009. This year’s conference should be another really good one:

This year’s theme is “Creativity, Innovation, Inclusion & Transformation” recognising that 2009 is the European year of creativity and innovation, and the value these elements have to learning, whilst identifying that real transformation will only occur following universal inclusion e.g. Home Access.

Over 3 stimulating days this group will demonstrate, debate and explore how mobile technologies such as phones, entertainment devices, GPS locators, and netbooks can be deployed to enable transformational improvements in learning across schools, home, further education, training and business.

As always the conference will stage an excellent mix of inspirational talks from leading thinkers and practitioners, lively interactive debates, learners and practitioner showcases, special interest breakouts, networking and social sessions, plus an exhibition featuring the principle industry leaders.

Final date for proposal submissions is June 19th with notification of acceptance by July 31st.

This is your opportunity to participate as a presenter, facilitator or panellist at this year’s conference.

  • We are looking for examples of innovation in learning and teaching practice at all levels from primary to secondary to higher education and beyond.
  • We are interested in hearing about initiatives that clearly demonstrate, backed by evidence, improvements in attainment achieved using mobile computing technologies such as mobile phones, smart phones, entertainment devices, GPS locators, Internet tablets and netbooks.
  • We welcome submissions from all sections of the community including academics, researchers, practitioners, learners, software developers, device manufacturers, policy makers, school leaders, training specialists and those working outside of traditional learning environments.
